Here's a couple of testimonials from people who have used Flaxmill for business purposes.

"What a beautiful spot for our team planning retreat. We stayed in three of your houses, and felt instantly 'at home'. The picturesque surroundings were just perfect for allowing us all to slow down, and start thinking. Such gracious and thoughtful hospitality, too - everyone wanting to go the extra mile to make sure our stay was perfect - and it was!" - Fiona

"Stunning place, and locale, beautiful accomodation for 34 friends, with spaces for small lounge gatherings in the houses and in the gracious central lounge around the fireplace and in the conference and dining spaces. Catered on-site. We booked exclusive use of the whole site Friday-Sunday." - Oscar

"We needed a place to take our staff on a well-deserved retreat and escape the hustle and bustle of Auckland. We visited Flaxmill for two days in May and what a great two days it was. Flaxmill was exactly what we wanted and more. The grounds are stunning and the houses and cottages have beautiful sea and garden views. The houses and cottages are all modern and have beautiful decor. No amount of expense was spared when building this beautiful accommodation and you find yourself feeling at home from the moment you walk through the front door. The conference room, dining area and lounging area were well equipped and suited our needs exactly. Our caterer had nothing but great things to say about her stay at Flaxmill - the kitchen had everything she needed to cater for our 30 staff and she adored her cottage. The Managers went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating and made organizing the retreat a breeze. Our staff thoroughly enjoyed their stay here and left refreshed and revived. Overall Flaxmill exceeded our expectations. I score them 10 out of 10." - Paul
