We found Koutu Lodge in Opononi through Trip Advisor and then further detail from its own website. This B & B gave us a real world introduction and experience of life in the Hokianga Harbour area. Our host, Tony was so very friendly and helpful and willing to share stories of his rich life. Our ensuite room was very comfortable... More

We were warmly welcomed and all was clean and tidy with great views! Very helpful hosts. Delicious breakfast too. The best B & B we stayed in in New Zealand. Loved the quiet area away from traffic noise. The sitting room was spacious with good views.

Stayed 2 nights here. Quiet and relaxing. The place was comfortable, clean and spacious with a view out to the harbour. Tony, the host was helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast was a bit ordinary.

Our first experience of a B&B in New Zealand (and we are kiwis!) which we found very good. Friendly, knowledgeable host Tony even took us for a drive around the local area to see some of the views of the harbour. Very comfortable bedroom with views.

We found this B & B when in town and couldn't find other vacant accommodation. It is a little off the main drag, is clean however very dated. The breakfast was ordinary and I was pleased we had done a little shopping so I could use my own bread etc. it consisted of raw muesli, cornflakes, home brand bread for... More

The location is really cozy and the surroundings beautiful. The hosts Tony & Sylvia are really caring and friendly people. We felt like at home! We got loads of useful tips of things to do and see there which made our visit more enjoyable. We were sorry to leave.... A memorable vacation!

Kouto lodge was a very quiet and nice place to stay. Tony was very hospitabel and it was an excellent opportunity to learn about New-Zealand, their people and how they live. Rooms are nice, with good view on the bay. The rooms are not large but there is also a sitting room with tv available and an excellent wifi connection.... More

This was our first experience of staying in a Bed and Breakfast, and I can only say it was a fantastic introduction. We had a very warm welcome from Tony on our arrival and a cup of tea was instantly on the table for us. The room we stayed in was very comfortable, with a fabulous view. Thank you Tony... More

We stayed here for one night after all the other reasonably priced accommodation was booked out. The owners were very nice and welcoming and you felt at home straight away. The room was comfortable (although a little dated) with a great view of the harbour and sand dunes. The breakfast the next day was fresh and light and there was... More

We were two couples travelling in the Opononi Area and we stayed at the Koutu Lodge. It is basically a house in a beach suburb off the beaten track. Rooms were clean and homely, 80s decor, shared lounge area. Proprietor made us a nice breakfast and was very friendly - not quite the place to stay if you want to... More
