Fodor's Expert Review Edgewater Lodge

423 Karaka Bay Rd., Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand Fodor's Choice

Right by the water's edge, with stunning harbor views from every room, this place exudes class. Once the home of an Oscar-winning film producer, it has a large, comfortable lounge with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto a terrace. Fresh flowers and quality linens in each guest room underscore the attention to detail. A full gourmet breakfast is included in the rate; hostess Stella, formerly the owner-chef of an award-winning Wellington restaurant, is also happy to put on a silver-service dinner with a comprehensive wine selection. Settle in and be completely spoiled.
