The Ambers is truely a magical place, I felt instantly relaxed once arriving here for Alicia & Kent's wedding. The hosts Gerard & Diane are everything you could wish for, nothing too much trouble - and all the personal touches. I actually can't wait to come and stay again & have recommended to family & friends !

Thank you so much for your kind words Holly! It's wonderful to hear that the three of you had such a good time and we certainly look forward to welcoming you once again in our home. Perhaps next time you can try the Toile de Jouy Room or the Santorini Room which are also very romantic places to stay. We...

Many many thanks for your kind and warm words! It was a delight having you here and we are very happy that all went well. We are glad that you liked the Gite and enjoyed the pre-wedding evening with the lovely bride, nicely ensconced in a very private hide-away. We look forward to seeing you again some day!

I just want to say a big thank you to Gerard and Diane for everything they did to assist with my wedding day. Myself and the bridesmaids stayed in the gite suite the night before our wedding and it was gorgeous, very private but so comfortable and homely at the same time. Diane made us most welcome, she had flowers...

Our daughter's wedding at The Ambers is a day we will never forget. The beautiful surroundings and amazing service came together to make a very special day. Nothing was too much trouble for Diane & Gerard right down to Gerard showing the small children how to play Croquet! We will definitely be back!

Every aspect of The Ambers oozes olde world charm, right down to the smallest detail. We only travelled 30 minutes up the motorway from Auckland, but the experience was that of being transported to another world (just without the 20 hour plane trip!). A sense of peace and tranquility enveloped us the moment we walked through the front door, and...

We can't rave enough about The Ambers and owners, Gerard and Diane. We held our wedding here after finding The Ambers on the internet. We couldn't have picked a better place to get married. We organised the entire wedding via email from London and only visited The Ambers a few days before the wedding. As soon as we drove down...

The Ambers is a slice of paradise in the tranquil countryside. The whole setting of the 'French Chateau' is so romantic.
