The True South Dining Room is the domain of the award-winning executive chef, Ben Batterbury. His unique style elevates stunning local produce to new heights and takes diners on a visual as well as a culinary adventure. Fine local wines and a collection of Bordeaux vintages to rival any in the Southern Hemisphere complement the chefs’ creations and can be enjoyed in the comfort of the Bordeau Wine Lounge. Here, guests can savour the wines with a variety of appetising, seasonal platters or simply relax with high quality teas, coffee and freshly prepared scones and pastries.

A helicopter trip over Milford Sound is a truly unforgettable experience and no trip to the area would be complete without a wine tour.

When it is time to really switch off, the hotel’s library is the perfect place to be. For those wishing to pamper themselves, spa treatments are available in the privacy and comfort of guest rooms and apartments.

There isn't a bad time to visit the South Island. The summer months (December to February) boast the best weather, while the cooler spring (September to November) and autumn (March to May) seasons are the ideal time to enjoy lots of the activities on offer. In the winter (June to August) head south to Queenstown hills for skiing and snowboarding.
