​Yesterday we held our Babyloss NZ fundraiser here. We went with the high tea option and am so pleased we did! It was AMAZING!! Bernie and her team made everything run so smoothly, the food was to die for and the venue itself is out of this world beautiful! All of our guests commented on what an amazing venue we had chosen. Thank you to Bernie and all of her wonderful team, we will be back again.

I whole heartily agree that our day went fabulously yesterday thanks to you and all of your team. The band, DJ, Combi van, decor, even the xmas crackers, your staff, and most importantly the second to none catering, as always have done you proud.  The Directors, Managers and all staff have been full of compliments today for all of the above reasons. We will certainly be booking next year!

Yashili Christmas Function (December 2018)

Found this place quite by accident and booked to stay for one night. Worth going a little out of your way for if you want something exceptional but low key.  We had a family room which was spacious, beautifully furnished, had a fantastic wet room type shower and was so comfortable I enjoyed my first nights good sleep in two weeks of travelling. The grounds are fantastic, worth exploring and take time to befriend the pig. The staff were superb, so very very helpful. They kindly arranged to receive and keep some post for us as we were travelling.  Now here's the deal clincher: breakfast! My word. I have not enough vocabulary to describe it. All I can say is see photos and make sure you leave enough time in the morning to enjoy it. Really savour it, there's lots to enjoy and you will not be hungry for the rest of the day . All home produce and delivered in the cutest little box. Delicious.

I’d like to say a massive thank you for making Robert’s 30th party a truly special day!  It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with all of you and the service has been exceptional and you're all so wonderfully friendly and accommodating :)  The day ran so smoothly and the food and games were incredible - all our guests were happy throughout the day and complimented the venue and the food. It was an enjoyable day had by all.  I'm sure everyone who attended would highly recommend LaValla to their friends and family for future events. Many thanks again.

On behalf of the Te Kauwhata & Districts Lions Club I wish to thank you for an evening to remember.  To your very efficient staff who were excellent, polite and very attentive, a grand job, well done. A special thank you to Chef David, for a great selection of food, nicely present and certainly plenty of it.  Thank you again for a very special evening, at a wonderful venue. Wishing you every success in the future.

Nicest Place Travelling for a Month.  This is by far the nicest place we have stayed in through New Zealand. We have done holiday parks, farm stays, high rise hotels and musty Ole motels. I was so happy to check into this place. The linens, carpets, fixtures, absolutely everything seems brand new. The towels were fluffy and abundant. The linens of good quality. No paisley print bedspreads from the 70s here! Even the bed products were sumptuous.   Ordered a breakfast basket and was even pleasantly surprised by that. Delicious jams, cereals and yogurt parfait. No complaints at all. The Internet was fast too. Almost forgot to mention the pleasant hosts.  Everything was perfect and the price was right too. Why battle traffic and pay for parking in the city. Less than an hour away from airport and so much better.

It was a real pleasure working with the whole LaValla “family” Jess & David & his family were amazing as well as your family- it will talked about for a long time to come as one of the best events in RW Top of the North’s history!!
