We stayed here a few weeks ago, booked the room through a travel site. We were clearly the only people staying in the hotel this night. We got the room right next to the office which was quite small. There was no free wifi, of course. I couldn't help but think since maybe no one else is staying here we... More

We stayed in a Spa Studio for 2 nights in June 2014 and loved our stay. Hosts Chris & Denise were excellent, helping us with our fishing trips, local restaurants, etc. Mangonui is a beautiful little harbour village and we know we will return. Superb location, off the main road down by the Cruising Club which made for a very... More

Chris and Denise were fantastic hosts. They made us feel welcome, they were able to recommend the best fishing charters based on first hand experience. Chris even assisted Grant in the prep & cooking of our catch. The house-keeping staff soon became like family. Thank you Maria. My boys loved the swimming pool. Overall just an exceptional stay. Highly recommended!

Was offered a three night stay at Acacia Lodge Motel for a very special price which a friend and I took up. Lovely apartment with two rooms, each with two comfortable beds, well appointed kitchen and comfortable living area. The second floor gave us a view of that corner of the harbour and a beautiful pohutakawa tree. Great pool for... More

The room was spotless and more than adequate for our needs, comfy bed, super shower lovely view over the harbour. After settling in we... More

Bread wrapped up in gladwrap siting on the bench, not even in the fridge. Mind you have experienced this before at a motel in the far north.There were no tissues... More

Just had 5 nights accommodation at Acacia Lodge. Unit 5. We were really comfortable in this studio apartment. Quiet. Good view across the pool to the harbour. Managers Denise and Chris are extremely helpful and very pleasant people, contributing to a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Lots to do in the area. Great beaches, and a lot of history to soak...

Beautiful spot overlooking Mill Bay - just stunning. Very comfortable and great hosts. Property a little tired but very clean and good comfortable beds. First time I have ever seen a flannel especially for removing make up - nice touch! Good pool area for relaxing around.

What a location for a motel right on the waters edge in an ideallic inlet in one of the prettiest villages in NZ. Only 10 minutes walk or 1 minute by car to the village of Mangonui but a walk with stunning views on the way you hardly notice the time passing and should not stop you staying here. Mangonui... More
