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

Immaculate room, cheery and very helpful hosts with great advice for everything in the greater area, wonderful breakfasts. Happy to go back and happy to recommend. You can get cheaper but 88 Lodge is excellent value.

We had a fantastic stay here back in April, the accommodation and grounds are really wonderful as were the hosts Geoff and Chris. On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and an upgrade to the Majestic Suite. The room was huge and opened out onto the grounds which are extremely well kept and pleasant to relax in. Geoff...

We just love Northland so much and have spent a lot of time finding those extra special places that surround us. The next best thing is sharing those places with our guests and it’s always a delight to get the feedback this is appreciated. So pleased to read you enjoyed our Majestic suite, the grounds and our special breakfasts. We... More

Both my partner and I really enjoyed this location. It was far enough away from everyone to feel like you were in your own paradise, but close enough for you to enjoy the touristy and foodie aspects of Kerieri and the surrounds. The breakfasts were amazing - they were a great start to the day. The local knowledge was fantastic... More

You raised such a good point about our location. We are so very quiet and private yet so close to Kerikeri, and within the Bay of Islands. Some like to be close to the hustle and bustle, in the mixer, but so many prefer to be able to step away and enjoy the stars in the light pollution free sky,... More

A friend and I stayed here and had an excellent experience. The owners are extremely helpful and responsive. Geoff had great recommendations for activities and restaurants. And he was a huge help by booking different activities for us during our stay. Chris cooks up a delicious breakfast; we had the best croissants ever (they were homemade!) The accommodations were quite... More

It is always a pleasure to use our local knowledge to ensure our guests get the very best out of their time here. With so much to do locally the biggest decision is what to leave out. Using the Bay of Islands (Kerikeri) airport like you did can effectively give 2 extra days in the Bay area. Great planning. We... More

Upon booking at 88 Lodge I was informed that they do not normally accept bookings with children, however gratefully they made an exception for our baby (7 months old). We had the Majestic Suite and I cannot fault it! It is immaculate. Unfortunately we arrived in the dark :( so were unable to realise the beauty of the outside surroundings... More

It was a delight to have you, your Mum and that lovely little baby boy with us. As you say we do not normally take children. 88 Lodge is geared up to provide peaceful surroundings for independent travellers rather than families. However we do both love the little ones and his presence made us both sad that we do not... More

We had a lovely night at 88 Lodge in March 2014. The rooms were very comfortable and suited to our needs perfectly. The gardens looked stunning and I wish we would have had more time to relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounds. The highlight of our stay, however, was meeting our fabulous hosts, who looked after our every need. They... More

It was such a shame that your time with us had to be cut short but we really enjoyed your company on the 4 days you were with us. For a first time trip to NZ you resisted the temptation to try and ‘do’ both islands electing to tour Northland only. So sensible but alas matters at home demanded your... More

We were here for three nights at the end of two weeks of traveling as two couples (my husband and I kept on for another week, but exploring the Northland was our combined trip's last hurrah). We chose Kerikeri based on its centrality to the region and were glad we did. And while the 88 is wonderfully secluded, it's an... More
