Standard room to expect at this pricing level. Clean, spacious with a nice view. Heated swimming pool a plus. Breakfast is as listed available til 10 A. M. Packaged muffins, yogurt and jams all very good. Fresh fruit available along with an honor bar for drinks which was a nice and friendly gesture. Service was acceptable, notable only in that... More

Were welcomed and shown to our room. Had a cooling dip in the pool. Would have appreciated a shade over the balcony as the sun was very hot. A lovely Continental breakfast was waiting for us in the guest room. As we had had lunch at Funky Fish it would have been nice to have been able to take over... More

The secret may be on the Street sign " Motel type Rooms". However it was advertised as with "free Breakfast" At $185 it is very expensive for Dargaville. The place is modern and the rooms similar in size to Motel/hotel rooms in New Zealand. The heated swimming pool was about 32c so very warm for this time of year. The... More

Lovely place to relax and let the world drift by. Pam was great. We booked the wrong room but she changed it no problem. Room next to the pool, hop out of bed into the pool....if it wasn't for the cover. Restaurant around the corner (5-10 minute walk), the Funky Fish, was OK. Great burgers and wedges at Sharkys, even... More

We stayed one night and as the weather was poor we didn't see a sunset or get to use the pool. This is modern accommodation on top of a hill with great views. The room was of an adequate size and was comfortable with a nice ensuite. Like everyone else for dinner we went to the Funky Fish restaurant round... More

Baylys Beach is a small rural, coastal settlement which is about 10 minutes drive from Dargaville. The lodge is located at the outer edge of the village about 5 - 10 minutes walk downhill to the local restaurant “Funky Fish” and from there another 5 to 10 minutes down to the beach. You could drive down in a few minutes... More

We had decided to add a few days touring onto our New Zealand holiday. We arrived in Baylys Beach having not booked any accommodation and stumbled upon Sunset View Lodge. The rooms are furnished to a high standard, were very comfortable and we had a beautiful view across the pool to the sunset. Our stay at Sunset View will always... More

We stayed here on a Friday and Saturday in March. I have to agree with many of the other reviews: friendly welcome, spacious room, stunning sunsets. Breakfast was OK, nothing special, but did include my favourite - fresh fruit and yoghurt. We didn’t see anyone else at breakfast as I think we were the only guests. Pam was away on... More

I am a South African, originally from Cape Town, now living on the beautiful west coast of England. I arrived in Christchurch a week ago touring New Zealand South and North Island and saw many beautiful places en-route, however as soon as I arrived at Sunset View Lodge, I felt so much at home, I didn't want to leave.

Lovely well appointed room. Room was large with easy access to the pool. The only down side to the room was the tiny TV. Nice big en-suite. 1030 checkout was appreciated. Good parking. Close to a good restaurant. If we are ever back in Dargaville we will defiantly stay here again.
