Outdoor Living

Experience the feeling of tree top living on the top verandahs

Look out over the river, down into our English garden or across the river towards Queen's Gardens. It's difficult to believe you are in the town centre. Both the Strauss and Beethoven Rooms have direct access to the verandahs, with the Mozart, Brahms and Schubert Rooms having access from the upstairs hallway.

There is ample seating for guests. The sunsets from here are magnificent, enjoy them with a bottle of our renowned Nelson wines!

The view from the verandah looks across the Maitai river, which is abundant with bird and fish wildlife, to the Queen's Gardens - an attractive botanical garden, started in the mid 19th century.

The images below show our beautiful verandahs and a view of Sussex House from across the Maitai river.
