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

Thank you for your review of Brenton Lodge, always good to hear how your stay was for you, we are well placed for guests exploring the Coromandel Peninsula, and as you say if you are a seafood lover, the Mussel Kitchen is well worth a visit, and I have had really good feedback this year for Argo Restaurant in Whangamata...

We stayed in February during a four week tour of NZ. The room offered was amongst the nicest we've experienced with a complimentary bottle of wine and a cheese and biscuits platter on arrival - a nice touch! Our room had a beautiful view over the nearby town and beyond. The hosts have perfected the art of being friendly without... More

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. Lovely setting, well kept gardens and pool, lovely room with all the amenities you need. Met up with a couple we had bumped into before in Nelson. Had good fun... More

Time sure flies by, almost a year since your stay here, thank you for taking the time to write a review on your stay with us, Beach Hop is an extremely busy time in Whangamata, but fortunately as we are situated overlooking town, it can be avoided, if it doesn't appeal. More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our recent visit to the Coromandel Peninsula. What a great find!

A little way out of the Town centre, but the situation, rooms, service, breakfasts all superb. Dinner in if you choose to have it is as good as it gets. The proprietors are wonderfully friendly, welcoming and provide a great experience in this beautiful part of the North Island. Don't miss it!
