Dining room

All rates are in NZ$ and include GST and a continental and/or cooked breakfast. Rates shown are valid until 31st August 2012.  Please contact us for rates required after this date.

Breakfast is served in the Guest Dining Room and we use local produce where possible. Nelson’s markets are an excellent source of locally grown fruit and vegetables. As well as fruit juices, cereals, fresh and poached fruits, we have homemade muesli, yoghurts, preserves and bread together with a selection of teas and speciality coffee. We also offer a cooked breakfast - the choice varies from day-to-day and includes traditional bacon, egg and tomatoes, local bratwurst sausage, frittata, blueberry pancakes and orange French toast. We have our own small flock of hens so we can guarantee fresh free-range eggs for breakfast.

If you have any special requests or dietary needs, please let us know and we shall do our best to accommodate these.

After breakfast you’ll probably want to explore the many attractions that Nelson has to offer – please refer to the Nelson page on this site. On your return, take a refreshing dip in our solar-heated outdoor swimming pool, wind down in the spa or simply relax on the sun deck or in the Guest Lounge. You are welcome to join us for a glass of local wine each evening – served either in the guest lounge or on the sun deck, depending on the weather. Complimentary sherry and port are also available. A telephone is available in the lounge for guest use – local calls are free but toll calls are chargeable.
