The Royal

With six king-size bedrooms each containing a full ensuite bathroom, there’s room for larger groups to relax and kick back after a day enjoying the great outdoors.

Three bedrooms on the upper level have their own balcony and three on the ground floor open onto the flagstone courtyard, which leads to the heated swimming pool and private sunbathing area.

“Staying at Cardrona Terraces was the icing on the cake of our New Zealand trip. The views from the upper floor are unbeatable and the hospitality was outstanding.
I can’t wait to go back."
