We stayed at Huntaway for three nights at the end of our holiday in New Zealand - having stayed at a number of luxury lodges. Huntaway was definitely up there with the best of them. Wonderful views, great service and delicious food. But what really made our stay was Victoria (the lodge host), who was so welcoming, vivacious and helpful.... More

A group of 4 guys did two weeks of golf in New Zealand. The lodging highlight of the trip was Huntaway Lodge. The rooms were perfect, and the view incredible. The owner and the chef did a great job on breakfast, and when we asked if they could do dinner, they were all over it. The owner, Diane, even went... More

What more can I say about a place that has a 100% excellent rating? Comfortable room (we stayed in the Te Ngaere room, which is the best views over the bays and islands, its own balcony and a bit more privacy. The view from the spa (jacuzzi) is breathtaking. Our host, Victoria, was wonderfully attentive and knowledgeable as she's from... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Huntaway Lodge. Beautiful setting, such hospitality by Victoria, great food, and wonderful scenery. Our dinner on the back porch on our last night was so delicious! A place we will remember for sure!

We stayed four nights at the Huntaway Lodge after spending two weeks in New Zealand. We thought we had seen all of the country and couldn't been astonished anymore. We were wrong!!! Our stay at the Lodge was magic: from the view on the nice beaches, to the incredible kindness of Victoria and David, it was just fantastic. When you... More

My stay at Huntaway was utterly fabulous. From the moment I walked into the main lodge and saw the view over the 2 bays below, I didn't want to leave. David was a wonderful host, the rooms were beautifully decorated and the food was delicious. I hope to return

I completely agree with the last two reviews. My husband and I are glad that Huntaway Lodge was the last place we stayed in New Zealand because, even though we stayed in some beautiful places in New Zealand, this was by far the best and became a great way to finish our New Zealand trip. The lodge, the surroundings and... More

My wife and I had five nights at Huntaway (in the fabulous Retreat) and honestly loved every luxurious minute of it. David made us feel totally relaxed and perfectly at home, while 'wonder woman' Victoria seemed always to have our every need pre-covered perfectly. Food superb. Went diving locally through Dive North. The hot tub is positioned in possibly one... More

We stayed at the lodge during our honeymoon. Richard&Rowan welcomed us very warmly and we had a very pleasant stay. The view is stunning and having breakfast on the deck was simply fantastic. Rooms are newly and beautyfully decorated. We had two dinners at the lodge, both of them delicious. We highly recommend it.

Speechless.... My husband and I spent four nights in the Retreat which was just perfect. The views were stunning and the view from the private spa was just as incredible. It was the perfect place to relax, read, watch the stars from the spa at midnight and eat. You will want for nothing. We want to thank the host for... More
