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

I had my Wedding Reception in Feb 2014 at The Lodge - and WOW what a fantastic time my now husband and I had! Everything ran soooo smoothly! There was no stressing what so ever, any questions or queries on the day the owner went straight to the MC who handled the lot! There was sufficient enough communication through the... More

We had a business meeting at The Lodge and it was realy fantastic. It was well catered, set up and our guests were looked after right from when they walked through the door to when they left. I really could not have asked for anything more and recomend The Lodge highly!

Thank you for your comments. We thought it important to respond to this particular review and the review prior in detail and as they relate to the same wedding, held at The Lodge the weekend before last. There are a number of points that are absolutely correct and some that remain vexatious. All arising it appears from our refusal to... More
