Me and my girlfriend had planned to stay in this lovely place for one night. At first sight this place was great. The room was really comfortable, the view from the balcony was beautiful and having Nikki's wonderful breakfast on it was amazing. Unfortunetly, while trying to go out for diner our car broke down at the b&b. The hosts,... More

This is the perfect place to stay for travelers to the far north. This Lodge scores a 5/5 on bed comfort and quality. Stayed two nights and each sleep was top notch. The new owners told me they replaced all of the old beds and have changed out the dated room furniture – and it shows. Breakfast is very good... More

Spent two nights while on a motorcycle trip. Rooms were more than I expected from a B&B. They are more like motel units. Very tidy. Our hosts were incredibly hospitable and the breakfasts were top notch. Best scrambled eggs ever.

Great hosts fed and watered us and provided us with lots of local tips, what to see and where to go. Motorcycle friendly with a great breakfast. A good spot to base yourself to explore... More

This place is in the magical spot of coopers beach. A lovely quiet spot, great swimming, fishing and eateries nearby. Rooms are recently renovated with new beds and really great pillow. Super comfy, the hosts Nikki and Gavin are amazing and cook the most amazing breakfast. Get the scrambled eggs!

My son and I stayed here for 2 nights on our recent trip to Northland. The location was central to everything we wanted to see and do in the area, as well as being very picturesque, easy to find and a short distance from the local shops, beaches and other facilities. Barbara and Ian are fantastic hosts, making us feel... More

This was a lovely friendly little Motel whose hosts are exceptionally helpful at booking tours, suggesting days out and restaurants in the area etc. Only four rooms mean real personal attention, nothing too much trouble. Breakfast of your choice served at the time you choose. Thoroughly recommended.
