July 17: New Kid on the Block LaValla

Let’s be honest, the talk behind the scenes prior to any conference is usually, “I really don’t want to go... I hate these things” and once there you will notice people seem a little on edge keeping their ‘work face’ on... So naturally, you would be skeptical if we told you we found a place where the delegates didn’t want to leave because they felt so at home… ‘Enter as Strangers, Leave as Friends’ is a moto LaValla has taken on and it seems it’s working..

This new and unique venue has a little bit of everything, with surprises around every corner, so much so in fact it is almost impossible to explain without seeing it. So rather than bang on about how wonderful they are, we figured you might as well hear from those who’ve actually tried it:

TripAdvisor Feedback

5 stars - Best food ever
I stayed here for 2 nights as part of a work conference. The rooms for accommodation were comfortable and spacious. The set up for our conference was great but the stand out was the catering throughout the day and also the restaurant meals. The food was absolutely outstanding! So much flavour, variety and the family style sharing plates was really nice and comforting. I would love to visit again just so I could eat there. The service was also fantastic, with the staff learning everyone's names throughout the 2 days. Highly recommend.

5 stars - Great Stay.. We’ll be back
We Stayed as part of a two day Team meeting. The rooms were well appointed and very comfortable, but the highlight was the food and the personal service we had by all staff. By the end of the two days everyone was on a first name basis. The chef (David) was amazing and created some stunning meals for us and happy to come and chat.

5 stars - Excellent venue
My team stayed here for 2 nights and what an amazing venue and experience. We were treated to some great food from an outstanding chef that was tailored from our product range, the attention to detail from planning to execution was fantastic. I would highly recommend using Lavalla for a team meeting or team building retreat. All the feedback from the team was that it was the best food they had ever had at a meeting! Thanks to the team at Lavalla.

5 stars - Nicest place in a month a traveling
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.
