We have just completed a wonderful stay- although too short unfortunately- at the fantastic bed and breakfast 88 Lodge in Kerikeri, in the North Island of NZ. Our room, was always exceptionally clean and very well appointed. Our hosts, Geoff and Chris simply could not do enough for us .Breakfast every morning was an absolute feast full of fresh, often...

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

Such a detailed and lengthy review, thank you so much. So pleased you enjoyed the spa pool (which is the special feature of our Queen Palm Suite), and found our maps and touring suggestions constructive. We do make every effort to find those ‘out of the way’ places that are so easily missed when on the normal tourist trail. We... More

88 Lodge provided us with 3 luxurious nights of accommodation. We had the studio room looking out onto the beautiful garden. Chris and Geoff were delightful hosts and were invaluable with their knowledge and advice on the area. They prepared a delicious breakfast, fresh fruit, homemade croissants, and much more. A tranquil oasis. Would highly recommend if you want to... More

Having never stayed at a B&B previously, we were unsure as to what lay ahead. Staying at Lodge 88 was the highlight of our trip to New Zealand's accomodation. Geoff and Chris excelled in their efforts , whether recommendations for dinner, places of interest or sound local knowledge, it all was incredibly helpful and completely successful. A delectable breakfast started... More

With New Zealand’ ability to generate huge highlights in most tourists memories it is a true accolade that you felt 88 Lodge was a highlight from your time here in God’s country. Thank you so much for this. We will look forward to being another highlight when you return. More

Our first experience of B&B in New Zealand, and if they are all like this then visitors from overseas are in for a real treat. Geoff and Chris are the most attentive of hosts. Our welcome was warm, friendly and refreshing after a long journey north from Auckland. The room was comfortably furnished, both it and linen spotlessly clean. It... More

This B&B is a delightful escape from the city, nestled in the outskirts of Kerikeri. The room was very comfortable and the hosts Geoff and Chris were very friendly. Our breakfasts were absolutely delicious and we were given very good recommendations for dinner. The room rates are on the high side (we were also there during peak season) but Geoff... More

Thank you so much for your kind review. Our breakfasts are often remarked upon and we are delighted you found them absolutely delicious.

Beautiful gargen and well appointed rooms. We travelled extensively over NZ staying at B&B's and this was equal or better than most but it was also by far the most expensive. Breakfast was good but not as relaxed as it could have been. Geoff very helpful with good advice. Would rate it higher but £30 more per night than other... More

We constantly check our rates to ensure they are competitive with other local B&B’s of similar standard. These guests booked via a Booking agent thus attracting their commission and booking fees. If they had booked direct with us the rate would have been far more reflective of the price level they expected. At 88 Lodge we tailor our breakfasts to... More
