Recently we remarried and as a wedding gift , from our special group of friends, we were presented with a voucher entitling us to a" Weekend's Romantic Escape Package" at Chapelwick Coastal Estate. We saved this wonderful gift until our first anniversary last weekend and headed there on Friday night. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the owners Raeywn & Rod on the front step. We were escorted up the magnificent staircase to The Hunter Suite where a table was laid for two with the Champagne waiting to be opened. To briefly describe our stay, the weekend of delicious homecooked meals, taking in the amazing decor of this historic place and the warmth and hospitality extended by our hosts was quite overwhelming. We plan returning with our friends & challenge Raewyn & Rod to a game of billiards.

What a fantastic place to stay with a group of friends. For five couples to find somewhere to stay where we can laugh. joke and generally enjoy ourselves without disturbing any other guests this is the place. Our wonderful hosts Raewyn and Rod went out of their way to make our stay the best it could be. There was plenty to do tennis,swim,golf walk the beautiful property as well as a game of golf at the nearby local golf course. This is the best of luxury accommodation without compromising a very relaxed atmosphere.

Everything was a pleasure for us for the one night we stayed at Chapelwick.

After a hot motor bike ride down from Napier it was a treat to be welcomed by the gorgeous grounds and friendly hosts. An hour lazing around the pool and snacking on the home grown grapefruit and apples helped us relax.
The rooms are large, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Ours having a view out towards the coast.
The bathrooms are well appointed and the showers are hot with descent water pressure.
Both our evening meal and breakfast the next day were delicious and sumptuous. Left us struggling to get the bike gear on for our trip home.

Would definitely recommend Chapelwick to travellers.

My wife and i being elderly, and with families away for the Christmas holidays, decided to seek a comfortable, quiet small hotel by the beach in Hawkes Bay, for a few days at Christmastime. This we found at CHAPELWICK,near Porangahau. Built in the mid-19th Century as a large private home, burnt down in the 1920 s and rebuilt substanttially,in extensive well wooded grounds, with pool, tennis court and croquet lawn, about 1/2 km from the sea,it looks imposing, with seven bedrooms ( but only one ensuite )which are all large cool and with attractive garden views. There is no lift,but stairs are gentle and easily negotiated b y this lame old man,Public rooms are large and comfortable; an attractive feature is the dining room, with a large communal dining table, where guests forgather for meals tout ensemble, which makes for lively and entertaining .conversation. Individual tables are available for those seeking it. Meals are substantial,beautifully cooked and presented and delicious. Our hosts were charming and helpful. Altogether a real "find"
