First Class Accommodation

Cotter House
4, St. Vincent Avenue

Owners:              Gloria Poupard-Walbridge
General Manager: Gloria Poupard-Walbridge

Cotter House, a rare Inner City Heritage Luxury Retreat, is one of the finest venues in NZ, a haven of charm and hospitality that offers the ideal atmosphere for relaxed holidays.

Exquisitely restored, its Regency architecture preserved, this romantic hideaway offers a rare cultural experience. It is located in Auckland's most exclusive suburb, only a 10 minute drive from the city.

Today the mansion springs to life with renewed splendour. Combining exquisite antiques with an extensive modern art collection, Cotter House boasts a classic French décor that reflects the continental flair of its owner, Colombian-born Gloria Poupard-Walbridge.

Cotter House serves delightful food in the French tradition of the 'Table d'Hote', accompanied by an international wine cellar, with a backdrop of the peaceful, landscaped gardens. A feature of the property is the ballroom. Originally built in 1892, it can host a cocktail party or banquet up to 30 people.

Guests will experience that perfect little 'je ne sais quoi', that embodies the hospitality and luxury of Cotter House, with two lounges at their disposal in which to relax by the fire and enjoy pre-dinner nibbles. The four bedrooms are luxuriously decorated and feature a selection of the hand picked art present throughout the property.
