Nestled between the mountains and the ocean on New Zealand’s South Island, and set overlooking the renowned Waimea Estuary vineyard, the Bronte Country estate is more akin to an elaborate guest house than a hotel. Unwind in the beautiful rose garden as you familiarise yourself with the world famous New Zealand landscape.
A scenic 30 minute drive from Nelson airport will take you halfway between Nelson city and the Abel Tasman National Park. The central location of this hotel makes it the perfect destination to get your adventure on as you swim, kayak and dive at New Zealand’s only coastal national park. More of an urbanite? The close proximity to Nelson City will allow you to uncover some of the local boutiques and sample the delicious café culture.
Whether you choose from the suites, villas or Te Koi (Maori for headland) you can be assured that you’ll be privy to spectacular views, complimentary drinks and hand-made chocolates…all treats that go right to the heart of the hotel’s homey ethos. For a more romantic stay, book into a shoreline suits and fall asleep to the sound of the sea.
Why we like it
Aside from the hand-made chocolates and friendly service, this hotel is the definition of charm and intimacy. A family run establishment, you can expect to be welcomed into the hotel with the warmth and hospitality as you relax and unwind in the tranquil surroundings.
