Had a lovely 2 night stay here. Our room was spacious and luxurious, if a little cold on arrival but that was soon rectified by switching on the heating and electric blankets. The bed was really comfortable. The views from our room and the breakfast room were great. Breakfast was just amazing, we were disappointed to find that Sallie and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in early March 2014. The location, with superb views over the sea is perfect, the grounds are beautifully laid out and the outdoor pool is excellent for people like me who want one big enough to swim in but not too large or deep. Our rom was in a separate building and so was... More

Brenton Lodge is a delight, a little way out of town but in a fantastic location in a beautifully landscaped garden.

We enjoyed our stay here. After a hectic run of "lively" evenings this was an oasis of calm. It's a little way out of town but a good base for touring the Coromandel and anyway Whangamata doesn't have much to offer in the evenings. We were welcomed with a smile by Dave and shown to our room with its own... More

We stayed in February during a four week tour of NZ.

The welcome we received was both personalised, thoughtful and everything you could hope for - Sallie and Dave were first class hosts. The rooms were roomy, beautifully furnished with a flair for interior design, spotlessly clean, with nice toiletries and amenities. Fantastic setting and a real luxury feel to the way the cottages are set out in the lovely grounds... More

The Lodge is made up of several buildings spread around a super garden with views across the bay. The decor and furnishings are to a high standard and the couple that run it are very pleasant and attentive. The food was good and we also enjoyed a drink with them at the little pool side bar. Great food loved the... More

The town was totally swamped by 70,000 tourists because of the classic car rally. Brenton Lodge was an oasis of calm. Welcomed by hosts Kiwi Dave and Sallie from Wales.
