We stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon. It is heaven. During our stay we met Geraldine, Jacqui and Roy - they could have done no more to make us welcome. With only 3 guest rooms there is a worry that you feel like your a guest in someone's home, but they are so warm and welcoming they just... More

This was our first stop in our 3 week holiday in New Zealand, so we were there to rest and relax! As our flight to Kerikeri arrived at 9.30am I'd e-mailed the lodge to ask whether it would be possible for us to check-in early. Needless to say, we took longer than anticipated to drive from the airport to Opua... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2007

This was a very pleasant stay, but we had just stayed for three nights at Pukematu so it was following a real class act. The room was very large, above the garage and very nicely set out, the main house is a little dark and the bedroom was also. But overall no complaints and the owners were very helpful. The... More

We loved the Aomotu Lodge! At first we couldn't decide whether to stay in Russell or Paihia, and we're so glad we chose Russell. We drove to the Bay of Islands from Auckland, and then took the car ferry to Russell. I was expecting a large ferry, so I was surprised to see one that only holds about a dozen... More

Having expected this place to be pretty outstanding, I found it underwhelming. I got the overall impression it was run for the convenience of the owners rather than guests - breakfast was served at a set time (8.30am), the owners' baby seemed free to scream whenever he wanted, and I was woken at 3am by someone (owner, not guest) having...

My wife and I booked into Aomotu Lodge after we were referred there by another lodge owner in Russell who had no vacancies. She told us that the lodge had just been taken over by new owners and renovated and that it was wonderful. How right she was. The hosts, Jacqui, Geraldine, Clinton and Roy could not have been more...
