We found The Ambers quite by accident and at the last minute they were able to accommodate us. So glad they could. The accommodation is beautiful and luxurious with the rooms spacious and clean. The old world charm and elegance of this beautiful place surrounded by immaculate gardens is memorable. Breakfast was amazingly scrumptious! The hosts are lovely and helpful....

We stayed one night and had a very pleasant stay. The owners were helpful and gave us a light dinner for a modest extra charge, which was just what we wanted after our day's driving. Breakfast was included and was ample.

This place is an absolute gem - as soon as one turns down the tree-lined driveway it is as if one leaves NZ and arrives in France. We have stayed three times in the "gite" - the first for our wedding night and two anniversaries since. The setting is beautiful and the elegant accommodation is very well thought out, right...

Breakfast is a feast for all the senses and means the...

You have beautifully described the mood we've tried to create here in the New Zealand countryside. We have had many people think the house was built a hundred years ago (our best compliment). Many also used the words "understated elegance" to sum up their impressions. It was lovely to meet you and we wish you safe travels in the future!...

We had a really lovely time at the Ambers, even in the middle of winter it is beautiful. Diane, Gerard and Wolf were such lovely hosts, the location was so quiet and relaxing, the set-up was gorgeous, the food delicious and we were very reluctant to leave.
