My husband and I had a wonderful stay spending two nights at the Lodge. What a beautiful property with immaculate rooms and everything we could wish for. We loved the resident pets and farm animals dotted around the place and the outdoor spa was great even in the drizzly weather. Little touches in the rooms such as tea candles in... More

For this visit we introduced friends to it from the deep south! Once again, we were not disappointed staying there and our friends were really impressed with the Lodge, Mutsuo's breakfasts and the very warm welcome that they received. It really is a fantastic place to stay with the tranquility, wonderful rooms, the outlook and the animals all making a... More

We just spent 2 nights at Puketotara Lodge and wished it could have been more. Thank you, John and Mutsuo, for a fantastic stay! Everything was perfect -- the hosts, the Lodge grounds, Mutsuo's unbelievable breakfast feast, the rooms...we could go on and on. Little touches, like fresh flowers in the room and bathroom, added so much. The location is... More

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

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
