1. Croydon Lodge

Nestled in park-like grounds on the edge of Gore, the four-star Croydon Lodge offers one of the most upmarket stays in the area for couples. A popular wedding venue, the lodge boasts modern elegance in its interiors, from the on-site Blazing Copper Restaurant & Bar, which we recommend for dinner in The Romantic Getaway Guide to Gore, to its choice of guest rooms. Keep things more affordable in the “Standard Rooms” with ensuite and tea/coffee-making facilities or upgrade to the “Superior Rooms” with more polished fixtures and plush bedding with feather toppers. Those celebrating a special occasion may even want to take it a step further with a stay in the “One Bedroom Suite” with a lounge and an ensuite with a separate bath and shower.
