The discerning traveller wants choice in the range of luxury accommodation offered to them - choice between hosted stays, self-contained and full-service luxury lodges.
New Zealand's hosted city, country, beach and off-the-beaten-track stays offer a bed and breakfast service and the opportunity to get to know the Kiwi characer at close quarters. This is what distinguishes hosted accommodation from the many motels and hotels - our host's interest in and sensitivity to the needs of their guests. Always, our hosts will give of themselves and share their way of life as well as sharing their home.
Self-contained cottages, vacation apartments and holiday homes, whether in the city or country, offer the opportunity to get away for a while - to recover from or prepare for the rigours of travel, or to just relax and soak up some sun or culture.
And when it is time to luxuriate in a full-service, boutique resort, Friars Guide properties offer some of the highest standards of service available in New Zealand.
Other accommodation guides have come and gone, but Friars has been consistently successful for four reasons. First is the size and quality of the images. Second is the volume of comprehensive and informative text. Third is the use of an objective writing style where marketing puffery and superlatives are not used everywhere. Fourth is the personal recommendation of the authors which is based on a personal visit to each property - if it does not meet our minimum standards for location, building, services and amenities, and delightful hosting, then it is not accepted for inclusion in Friars Guide.

arts culture and Nature Coast
Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand, is also the wider region including the Hutt Valley and Kapiti Coast. This compact city is surrounded by hills and has one of the most beautiful harbours in the world. The city centre, 2km in diameter, is ideal for exploring on foot and a cable car connects the city with Kelburn for easy access to the Botanic Garden and Carter Observatory. Considered the arts and culture capital of New Zealand, regular performances by the National Ballet, Symphony Orchestra and Opera as well as a number of professional theatres are all given in the city. Te Papa (
Our Place), the national museum, described by the Washington Post as
one of the most ambitiously eclectic museums in the world, takes pride of place on the waterfront, alongside a rich and vibrant café scene. The Hutt Valley provides access to the Wairarapa via the Rimutaka Hill and is home to Trentham Racecourse. Well worth a cautious drive is the steep and windy Paekakariki Hill Road, connecting the Hutt Valley to the Kapiti Coast, also called the Nature Coast because of its many eco-tourism opportunities and beaches, and with the Kapiti Island bird sanctuary off the coast.
