This beautiful old house is just gorgeous!!!!! It is well appointed, being only a 1 minute walk down a steep hill into town. We stayed in the middle of winter and the house was warm and cosy. Each room is decorated beautifully. The staff were incredible, they could not do enough for us!!!! There is home baking to have if we wanted and the breakfast spread was one of the best we have had!!! We would 100 percent recommend this place!!! We can't wait to come back again!

Hotel's Favourite
I travel frequently and I have never stayed in such a special place. The Hulbert House has been lovingly restored, its beds are so comfy, its gardens are beautiful, its location perfect, and the views spectacular. But it's the staff that makes this place so incredibly special. We were warmly greeted upon arrival with tea and honey as we settled into our rooms. Then invited us down for delicious canapes and wine in the lovely living/dining room. They made dinner reservations for us and then drove us to and from the restaurant! They made arrangements for us to be picked up for our overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound and kept our large pieces of luggage for us while we were gone. Upon returning we were again warmly greeted, with tea with honey and lemon in our rooms, where our luggage awaited us. Then, because we were not feeling well, the staff made a delicious vegetable soup for us so we didn't need to go out for dinner. I have never been treated so warmly and well anywhere. Their attention to detail was amazing and they anticipated our every need. I can't say enough positive things about our delightful stay and I can't recommend Hulbert House highly enough. I don't usually write reviews but this place is so special I had to. Treat yourself to impeccable service in a beautiful home. You will not be disappointed.

We have just finished a week at this amazing place. We travel a lot and know quality when we see it. This is quality through and through and every level … the room, the lounge (canapés & drinks in the evening by the fire), the food … but most of all the brilliant team. That includes every person in every role. Thank you to everyone who made our visit so wonderful despite the personal matter that unfolded whilst we were there.

My husband and I have just had the pleasure of staying 5 nights in this wonderful boutique hotel. We have travelled the world quite extensively, and we both agree that this is our favourite hotel we have stayed in. We were greeted upon arrival by the couple who run the hotel, Jay and Jade. They are an absolute credit to the place. I hope they are well appreciated by the owners because they make the whole experience a wonderful one. Aside from the stunningly restored house, amazing views, luxurious bedrooms... It was the little touches that made our stay here so special : canapes & drinks by the fire in the lounge, a bottle of champagne gifted in our room for our anniversary, day trips helped planned, a special breakfast made upon request (thank you Jay). A very special mention goes to Sanja (I hope this is the correct spelling) who looked after us like royalty. The nicest, kindest person, and excellent at her job. Thanks for making our anniversary so special.

This place is ridiculously good. As a kiwi I usually get scared away from overly attentive service, but this felt like we were staying with old friends, nothing was too much trouble and we love our stay. Our room was immaculate, very restful and we had no problems at all during our stay. Breakfast was brilliant, drinks and the cheese board were above and beyond what we expected. We were met at our car by Jay, he parked it for us, checked us in and from then on was just a brilliant host. Cannot recommend this place more highly, we will be back!
