Our savious on a dark and stormy night, Swallows Ridge provided more than just shelter during one of the biggest storms to hit the upper North Island in 2011.
With the rain tumbling and the wind howling, the staff at Swallows Ridge went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable, safe and happpy after travelling late into the night through the storm.
The rooms were resplendent and when morning broke over the stunning scenery we were blessed with a heartbreakingly beauftiful sunrise which invigorated the soul after Swallows Ridge had restored the spirit.
We really can't recommend Swallows Ridge enough, the staff and hotel were able to take a dreadfully depressing night and turn it into a great, uplifting experience.
