We are half way through January 2017 already.
Collingwood Manor has been busy with guests from all over the globe, enjoying our wonderful hospitality, and loving our wonderful city. We still have some spaces available so go to www.collingwoodmanor.co.nz/bookings.html to secure a booking.
Some of our guests had a great time at the jazz festival early January, and the wearable arts museum remains a hit: www.wowcars.co.nz/
Riverside swimming pool is a short walk away, and after your swim, enjoy a beer from the Craft Beer Depot craftbeerdepot.nz/. Or you could walk to the centre of New Zealand, and then along the Maitai river for a picnic & a refreshing dip in one of the swimming holes. Alternatively, relax on our veranda with a good book and a glass of something cold from our drinks list.
