Quite small - only three studio units in an historic stone building. Very pleasant complex with indoor/outdoor living. Up market but different and very easy living. Our weekend included DBB . Separate and quality dining with plated breakfast from 8am - 2.oopm. Manager/front of house for us was Lily - great service and great kiwi approach to us.

I am so glad we found the Speargrass Inn. It was a wonderful hidden place to stay on our trip and exactly what we were looking for. The room is adorable, the food was amazing and the service superb. Definitely recommend to stay for a night or more.

There was no wiifi, but we didn't need it and if you did, it was working in the restaurant. Only complaint would be that our steaks were not done to specifications, but,...

Having stayed at Speargrass Inn twice we can thoroughly recommend it. Rooms are well set out, everything you could want. The food is outstanding, we have dined in the restaurant, dinner & breakfast & also had the gourmet bbq dinner & continental breakfast when the restaurant wasn't open, both are just to die for & such good value for money....
