Our People

With a reputation for wonderful friendly service, Treghan’s professional hospitality team strive to deliver an unforgettable experience which reflects a real Kiwi sense of place.

Owner and manager hosts, Anna Hamilton and Murray Bain, are both New Zealanders (Canterbury), though of English, Scottish and Irish origin.

Murray is a life long lover of golf and holds several Board roles around New Zealand.  Anna, whose background included numerous senior corporate positions, is a keen designer (gardens, interiors and jewellery)  and has wide ranging interests.

Our Hospitality Manager Lynsey Read, ensures our guests needs are catered for beyond expectation, the highest standards of housekeeping and maintenance are maintained, that style and design is not eroded,  and the gardens are spotlessly inviting.  Born in the UK, Lynsey brings an enormous range of experience to her role and relishes ensuring that the “at home” personal attention levels are maintained.

Treghan Luxury Lodge offers guests a home away from home, something the owners found really important during their travels, which have found us well versed in international standards for luxury accommodation.

So, each of the gorgeous guesthouses and cottages is designed as a unique, luxurious, personal space giving guests the freedom to enjoy their stay in utmost tranquility without constant interruptions.

“After many years working, living and travelling around New Zealand and overseas, we have made Kerikeri in the beautiful Bay of Islands our home.
We wanted to offer guests a space truly their own – with secluded living and sheltered decks to laze on – just the kind of holiday space we both enjoy!”
