Welcome to the accommodation option with a difference
in historic Te Aroha
The Nunnery is centrally located and within easy strolling distance both to the township and Te Aroha’s tourist attractions. Built in 1977 to house the Sisters of Mercy, it sits on a large, well-tended section.
In converting it to guest accommodation, we have retained the simplicity of the building but have added all the mod-cons: air conditioning, a comfortable guest room with TV and cooking facilities, quality linen, fittings and generous off-street parking.
A feature of the solid brick and tile building is the interior use of Rimu timber both in the trimmings and for the in-built furniture.
Your host will be Denise Herbert, long time resident of the Te Aroha region who bought The Nunnery from the Sisters of Mercy in November 2008 and converted it to its current use.
If you wish to book the entire main accommodation wing of Rooms 1 to 5 and have exclusive use of the guest facilities, we offer a special rate of $370 /night. This
option was very popular last spring/summer/autumn, not only with cycling groups, but with groups generally. Please make a booking by
The Nunnery offers a wheel chair friendly, fully independent studio unit.
