A spur of the moment trip. We booked here because we have stayed here before. Service was awesome. Room was well presented and clean. Good value for money.

Loved our room. Warm, clean, modern and spacious. Wonderful amenities, everything you could want. My only complaint was of the very icy driveway. I have recently had knee surgery and was very concerned about falling over. There are products that can be spread over the surface of the driveway that combats this problem.

We arrived at Aurora on George just as New Zealand was getting ready to go to level four for the coronavirus pandemic. We stayed three nights until we could fly back to the US. Chris the manager was SO helpful during this stressful time. He had to limit service to protect staff, but answered all our needs and made sure we had what we needed. It was a safe haven with its beautiful gardens and comfortable rooms. We were able to fix dinners when restaurants closed so the kitchenette was vital. This is a beautiful place with the kindest managers. All five of us were extremely pleased with our accommodations.
