Hulmes Court Staff - We'd Love You to Stay


Norman and Zina

Norman and Zina who own Hulmes Court and are your hosts.  Norman is a true born and bred Kiwi from a family of settlers who arrived in the 1800s. He was educated in NZ and London, studying geography, history, philosophy and economics and he's stood for parliament twice. He is still young (or that's what he thinks) at 52.

Most importantly there is his wife Zina, she is much more exotic.  She grew up in Vladivostok Russia and is of course fluent in Russian.  She loves meeting people from overseas and looks after the day to day running of the bed and breakfast.

We also have two children Yulia (6) and Miron (4). You'll often find them playing outside or helping in the B&B.  We are a very child friendly accommodaiton and love families staying with us.

Norman started his own advertising business 29 years ago in Dunedin and Queenstown, and also owns a large plastic factory which makes all kinds of things including toys!! Visit the factory at

Norman and Zina have travelled widely and love meeting and entertaining people from around New Zealand and the world.  Norman also has a personal blog called

Friend Me on Facebook Norman Wood



Solstice is our resident cat. He thinks he is the boss and that we are there to feed him and give him lots of attention. He loves guests and is very very friendly. Solstice is named after the day he turned up all wet and cold looking for a home - the winter solstice (the shortest day of the year).

He certainly made himself at home at Hulmes Court - so should you!  Click here to visit his homepage.  Or!!!!! become my friend on facebook:
