The past history and the modern story of the building and it’s owners and the two significant restorations are remarkable and engrossing. This building is a taonga (Maori word for national treasure) and has considerable mana (Maori word to describe a spiritual life force energy). You can experience the Britten Stables on a very deep emotional level once you understand the history and achievements of the Britten family.

Our stay was brief, however the location was great. The property is very special and we enjoyed our stay. The bed was soooo comfortable which is a big thing for us now as we are getting older. And the bathroom was very cool, loved the shower. Needed more time to enjoy.
