~ Daniel and family, Auckland (February 2013)

"The house is spacious, peaceful and a great place to have the extended family to stay at such a special time. The facilities are excellent with a well designed kitchen, great BBQ and the dining room and lounge were great. The bedrooms are all very comfortable with excellent facilities and the doors out onto the decks from the bedrooms were a bonus. The decks provided great spaces for the wedding party to get ready and be together before the wedding. The views over the fields and out to sea are stunning and add to the complete place to stay. The photographer thought it was a great place for photos with lovely backdrops, a great garden and many different places that add variety to the important pre-wedding photographs. It is just so handy to Mudbrick which makes it so easy to get to and from the wedding venue. We would unreservedly recommend the Gorgeous Inn to anyone contemplating a stay on Waiheke and as wedding accommodation it is truly fantastic. Thank you so much." ~ David and Sheryl [for Rebecca's wedding at Mudbrick] (February 2013)

"Perfect holiday retreat - thanks!"
~ Paul, Auckland (January 2013)
