We spent two days away planning the next 12 months for our business and needed an out of the way place without being too far away. We found the venue to be very relaxing with no interruptions so were able to get on with the job in a confidential manner. The end result was great accommodation, great venue, fabulous food!!!!

Lovely home with silky soft linens, plush pillows, tasty treats, and everything we needed. Linda is a gracious hostess and gave us good tips about the area. Roses all around are shared with sweet singing birds.

We had a wonderful overnight stay in the cottage only wish it could have been longer. The grounds were beautiful and the continental breakfast provisions were great. Arriving after a long drive and having lovely homemade ginger crunch awaiting us with our coffee was a nice touch. Would highly recommend.

Stayed at wonderful Tairoa Lodge for one night. On arrival Linda served coffee and tea on the porch, which was highly appreciated. Recommend the Isaac Bayly suite (incl. nice balcony). We had 'surprise' diner, absolutely superb lamb dish. One word of caution if your are travelling on a heavy motorbike you may want to park the bike close to the... More

Everything about Tairoa Lodge was just perfect. Linda was a lovely hostess and welcomed us warmly. Our Blythe Room was beautifully decorated as was the rest of the house and we enjoyed a hearty breakfast in the beautiful dining room. Unfortunately, Linda wasn't able to provide us with dinner, but she recommended two very nice restaurants in Hawera and we... More

I had the great pleasure of having this huge & very stylish lodge & park-like grounds to myself during my stay, unfortunately for only the one night. Tairoa Lodge is the perfect base for exploring the many attractions of Hawera & south Taranaki - don't miss the nearby & unique Tawhiti Museum. This painstakingly restored 1890's Victorian villa offers the... More

Our first impression as we drove off the main highway into the Tairoa Lodge grounds was one of "Wow, this is lovely!" Although close to the road it is completely private and cut off by tall trees and bushes from the outside world. Immaculate gardens and a small swimming pool with a short petanque piste at one end confront you... More

We had the pleasure of a meal and accommodation at Tairoa Lodge Hawera. Fantastic value with superb service. If you want an accommodation experience that you will remember for the right reasons then I recommend Tairoa Lodge, Hawera, New Zealand.

We were lucky enough to stay at Tairoa lodge in preparation for my wedding recently. Gorgeous boutique accomodation. We had incredible service from Linda and her team. Breakfast and champagne served while we were getting ready. We stayed in the cottage and it was nice and private, we felt as could come and go as we pleased. We also used... More

A perfect place to relax at the end of the year. It was clearly the best place we stayed in during our trip to NZ. We chose the cottage, situated in a wonderful garden, and decorated Victorian style. Very comfortable for 3-4 people.
