Tairoa Lodge gave me a warm, inviting and relaxing environment in which to stay while attending a BPWNZ conference hosted by the Hawera Club. I wanted to treat myself to a special environment and that is exactly what Tairoa was. From the moment that we arrived Linda was concerned with our well being and comfort - a tray of freshly... More

Wished we were staying longer! Beautifully decorated rooms, fantastic service and lovely grounds. Great attention to detail. We came down to a beautiful continental breakfast in the... More

We needed to stay in Hawera for two nights and my memory of Hawera as a cold and damp town, with evening chill that permeates to the bones, meant that we did not look forward to being there. However, we discovered Tairoa Lodge on Trip Advisor and booked into the Isaac Bayly Suite. On arrival we took the option of... More

What a lovely place to arrive at, after a busy day. From afternoon tea on the terrace to a most delicious breakfast in the beautiful dining room, the hospitality was warm and discreet. I really enjoyed reading about some of the history and restoration of this lovely home. My stay in the Isaac Bayly Suite was most comfortable and I... More

The weather was awful but cosy fires greeted us in the lounge and in the dining room and our bedroom was warm and luxurious. We stayed in the Lovell Suite for our belated 10th anniversary and it made it feel very special. The house and gardens are elegant and spacious. For our celebration we sipped bubbles and ate a perfect... More

Being only about 4 hours of interesting driving from Wellington, and throwing in a visit to Whanganui, it was a great pleasure to stay in Tairoa Lodge.
