Luxury Accommodation at Te Kiteroa Lodge

Te Kiteroa translates from Maori as "The long view".
The Lodge's unique setting is at the foot of the Hunters Hills, close to native bush with stunning panoramic coastal views – only 2 minutes from the centre of town and a short distance off SH 1.

Waimate is halfway between Christchurch and Dunedin and known as the Gateway to the Waitaki Valley and South Island's most scenic lakes. Step off the highway and discover a unique tranquil setting.

The Lodge produces local wine from its own vineyard and operates a cellar door. Unwind at the end of the day with a glass of local wine in hand and a soak in the outdoor hot tub.
