If you’re looking for stunning views in an unpretentious setting in the legendary Bay of Islands we may have found just what you have in mind.
If nothing else, New Zealand is known for its wow-factor landscapes and the Crisdon castle definitely uses its assets to full advantage. Perched on top of a hill in an unassuming suburb, the panorama takes in the changing moods of a tidal harbour, a mossy blanket of headland reserves and a big, big sky.
The accommodation itself ticks the right boxes if you like tasteful decor in natural tones, the romance of candlelight and natural oils, and sink-into-deep- slumber soft bedding. Check your room has the best views, some are tucked back a little. It’s worth paying that bit extra for the real deal.
