28 Poets Corner, Waihi 3681, New Zealand
Meet Niki & Rog Dowe
Both Niki and Rog have extensive experience in the hospitality and service industry. They purchased Poets Corner Lodge in 2017 and it is a dream come true that they look forward to showcasing New Zealand and sharing their little bit of paradise with you.
Roger founded Hallmark Limousines in 1986 and has owned and operated the business for the past 31 years.
Under his stewardship Hallmark has grown to be the largest privately owned Chauffeur Drive business in New Zealand. We have been looking for that next step. When the opportunity to purchase Poets Corner Lodge arose it was something we had been considering for a long while.
Prior to becoming Business Development Manager for Hallmark Chauffeur Drive Niki had worked for more than 14 years as Cabin Crew for Air New Zealand and previous to that 2 years on the French canals as a hostess on Luxury Chartered Barges. Before taking up a position with Air New Zealand Niki successfully completed a London School of Cordon Bleu Cookery (NZ) Certificate and is an avid foodie.
