At the very end of our 6 weeks travel in New Zealand, we’ve stayed for 3 nights with Chris and Geoff. I can recommend this place as either a perfect start or grand finale of your holiday. In New Zealand we’ve stayed with numerous B&B’s and I would say that the 88Lodge was definitely one of the best places we... More

When overseas visitors plan a trip to New Zealand the little bit at the top of the country above Auckland can so easily be excluded in the wish to pack in as much as possible during the time here. But a trip into Northland and especially the Bay of Islands is so worthwhile as you found out. Because of our... More

88 Lodge is almost like a family stay with the lovely couple Geoff and Chris taking care for everything and it is an awesome location to visit Kerikeri and the area around. The breakfast could not be any better!

Thank you so much for putting up this review for us. ‘ Like a family stay’ is such a lovely way to describe staying at 88 Lodge, and ‘the breakfast could not be any better’ is such an accolade. Thank you again. More

We stayed just one night here but from the first moment on it was a very nice stay. We arrived very early and our room was not ready. No problem, we could leave our stuff and Geoff was on the phone booking a cruise for us!! And he recommended where to have dinner. We had a great day on the... More

We are seeing a regular market of guests who stay with us whilst playing a round of golf at the nearby world famous Kauri Cliffs course. Staying only one night but also like you planning to come back and stay longer. In fact 88 Lodge is so well located for there is 8 golf courses within easy day play traveling.... More

We stayed at 88 Lodge for 4 nights over Christmas 2014, at the end of our 23 day New Zealand holiday. We choose it so we could relax in comfort at the end of a very hectic trip. It did not disappoint, infact we were so impressed we added an extra night at the end. We could not fault it... More

A terrific three nights spent as guests of Chris and Geoff. Not enough adjectives to describe the service, property, gardens, rooms and those gorgeous breakfasts. Guys so helpful and informative. Would recommend

What a lovely review. Thank you so much. Having originally booked for just the 2 nights we are so pleased you saw the wisdom of extending your stay to enjoy this wonderful area so much more. There really is so much to do and see you can never spend enough time in Northland. More

Its wonderful to see that good old fashion service still exists. We have recently stayed at 88 Lodge and we experienced the best service from the owners Geoff and Chris. We certainly recommend this place if you are visiting the North Island. Martin & Clare

Sometimes the term 'Service Sector' falls very short of its title and it is therefore so kind of you to praise our service levels in this manner. Those little touches that make such a big difference comes under the term 'service' but to us it is not service but a pleasure when we can do that extra bit for our... More

I stayed at 88 Lodge when I took myself off for a couple of days myself after visiting friends with a newborn in Auckland. Geoff and Chris could not have been more friendly and helpful, which was especially appreciated since I was by myself. The standard of the lodge is as if you were in a luxury hotel. The setting...

We do so appreciate your kind comments about our breakfasts, which we believe are very much a feature of the 88 Lodge hospitality. The Bay of Islands is a large geographical area with attractions, events, activities, heritage and tourist places spread throughout. The perfect central location is difficult to find and when you add into the mix all that the... More
