Spacious, clean, well equipped apartment with balcony. The views were great. Jeanette was very helpful with local information. 10 minute drive to shops and restaurants in both Mangawhai and Mangawhai Heads. Information centre across the road. We stayed in the Heritage Apartment.

My husband and I only stayed one night. Jeanette is a super hostess. Not only was she welcoming, she gave us loads of useful tips on the locality and beyond. She served a delicious breakfast too! The Lodge is clean, airy and our room was very comfortable with a large balcony. We would definitely go back to Jeanette again if... More

We stayed two nights immediately following our long haul flight from the UK. This was the perfect place to unwind and recover from any jet lag. Jeanette made us feel very welcome from the outset and helped us with advice about the locality. The breakfasts she provided were outstanding. The view from the room with our own private balcony was... More

We stayed two nights at the lodge just expecting to stay at a regular standard B&B. When we arrived we were greeted at the door by Jeanette, a bubbly, charming host who invited us into her home. She immediately asked what we would like to see and do, recommended places to eat and sites to see. Our room was immaculate... More

We stayed one night here and enjoyed the lovely views and quietude. Jeannette went out of her way to make us feel welcome and fixed a gluten free breakfast for me. Not far out of Auckland and some good places to eat in village as well.

We stayed 1 night in the Clipper Suite and wished we had stayed longer! One night is not enough. A leisurely drive up from Auckland and we arrived at Mangawhai Heads. A sleepy little town, still with lots of "real kiwi batches". The Lodge is easy to find and although up a steep driveway has great parking at the rear.... More

We stayed one night in the self contained apartment on our way north. The apartment is very spacious and well appointed with many thoughtful extras supplied that make this a very special place to stay. The views out over Mangawhai to the Hen & Chicken Islands are absolutely stunning and we enjoyed being able to sit out on the balcony... More

We were only in Mangawhai for one night in for a friends party so we just wanted a nice place to sleep. The Par 3 room fit the bill nicely. The separate entrance was good to come back late at night. But we found the wet room was maybe a little too wet for our liking and didn't have a... More
