We got married 15 Nov 2014 and had spent just over a year communicating with Peter about our big day. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous! On the day the weather wasn't playing the game so Peter and Viv were amazing putting my mind at rest that they only needed 10 minutes to change the ceremony from outside to inside.... More

We looked at a number of venues for our wedding before deciding the go with Peter and Viv at the Lodge. The pre-wedding planning occurred in 4 month window and Peter was right on top of helping us achieve our perfect day, with nothing being a problem. We did our set up the previous day and Peter was on hand... More

The web information led us to look forward to a very pleasant experience. The venue itself turned out to be fine though some of the bedrooms had a damp smell and we needed the heating and electric blankets on to have a reasonable night. The food was the most disappointing aspect - breakfast was only a small bowl of muesli... More

Thank you for your feedback. We may have a different perspective. The evening that you spent with us was on the coldest night of the year (minus 4 degrees) all of our rooms are heated with additional heating to make them cozy and electric blankets. Each wardrobe has additional pillows, blankets and quilts. Our health and hygiene certificate has recently... More

I was lucky enough to stumble across "The Lodge At the Inlets'" website after searching for " luxury" accommodation in and around Porirua. I was on a business trip and required a quiet, comfortable and friendly resting place for a night. From the moment I arrived I felt right at home having been personally welcomed by Peter the owner and... More

We recently had our wedding at The Lodge and our day was just perfect. Peter, Viv and their team were fantastic. They provided excellent, friendly service. That included going the extra mile not only for ourselves as bride and groom, but our guests also. The food was lovely and after negotiating the menu options with Peter in our planning, our... More

I knew as soon as we saw the place, this venue was going to be the place where we got married. The venue has a great atmosphere about it. It had the wonderful balance of chic, style, warmth and comfort as well as graceful elegant touch. I loved that you could roam the grounds and explore the beautiful sections of... More

Our daughters venue was a wonderful choice, the moment we walked through the courtyard the staff were very welcoming. They offered support for the wedding couple all through their special day, the staff were professional in every way. The food was excellent, the canopies offered prior to the buffet were of a high quality standard and the buffet meal was... More

From the minute we walked through the door we knew this was the venue for us. Set on top of the hill overlooking the Pauatahanui Inlet it felt we were miles away from the city - but we were not. We utilised the Harbour View room for our small group with a number of other spaces for breakout areas. The... More

I thought this place was hired to provide a service to the bride & groom as the price they charged was not worth it.leading up to the big day owners request the wedding time be bought forward. The meal was certainly not $80-$90 per head,who orders wine to be removed from tables when they are not empty.Rip off on corkage... More

Thank you for your comments and refer you to our response to two prior reviews from your whanau. We recognise your dissatisfaction with your son’s wedding and we continue to encourage your son and daughter in law to discuss the issues raised in the Trip Advisor reviews personally with us, it appears that they have chosen not to do so....
