Had a fantastic stay, with lovely surroundings, great hosts, and great food. Would recommend for peace and quiet, set in lovely trees and rambling river for a fun splash and cool off. The accommodation is first class, with a spa for viewing the stars at night. Would definitely stay again.

Where to start about this amazing lodge! Spent two luxurious nights at this lodge and didn't want to leave! A very warm, inviting environment with beautiful scenery and friendly animals. We were cooked a magnificent valentines dinner by Mutsuo who is a fantastic chef and spent each night in the spa under the stars. Would definitely recommend this lodge to... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our time with Matsuo and John at the lodge. Beautiful scenery and walks to the river and golf course, all accompanied by a lovely range of animals who are obviously very loved. They took great care of us (Matsuo is a fantastic chef) and were so accommodating and flexible when we had to change our dates due to... More

Travelling around the Upper North Island we were privilaged to have 2 nights stay at this luxurious lodge. We were treated with exceptional service including great food, company and wine. The spa overlooking the golf course and immaculate grounds was truly magical and we highly recommend you experience this amazing place.

Where do I start with my review!!! Due to changed circumstances with our original holiday plans, we had to find accommodation very close to Christmas!! It had to be for 10 nights so no easy task!! Luckily we came across the Puketotara Lodge as they had a Queen suite available for the required period!! What a fantastic find it was!!!... More

For a first timer visiting Kerikeri, I would not have guessed hidden off a main road in a suburban town, lies a beautifully set up, warm and welcoming lodge perfect for any types of holiday, which has all the facets for an adventurous holiday, to a relaxing and unwinding trip for busy city dwellers for a short weekend breakaway.

It's probably one of the best courses I've played on. I play off a 3 handicap, and while this course it not the biggest in the... More

Lovely venue with excellent hosts and wonderful in-house dining. Thoroughly enjoyable 3 days, with a lovely private golf course developing well, excellent winery handy and very comfortable accommodation. Thoroughly recommend it as a couples retreat - sans kids!
