Omatua was amazing and perfect for our large group! The 16 of us stayed in comfort and the industrial kitchen was amazing to cook and prepare food in. We loved it and would recommend to large groups.

Had a group of 20 here for a birthday weekend. Was blown away by the beautifully kept grounds here, the amazing lawn was great for activities. And once the evening moved on the hall was of great use. Kitchen facilities were perfect for large group cooking and plenty of space for dining too. There is plenty to do in surrounding areas with many wineries and fruit orchards to choose from. Overall we had a great stay and would definitely come here again.
