When my travelmates and me were about to end our small Coromandel journey, we haven't been able to find a place to stay in Whangamata, so we ended up in the Golden Owl Accomodation. It's not exactly the place for young travellers like we were, but they do have a bunk room just like "usual" hostels. The place itself is... More

I really hate to write a bad review, but it wouldn't be right to just let this go. We were at The Golden Owl Accommodation Feb. 15-16,2014. Our room was fine, and that's the only nice thing I can say. The innkeeper is not the person listed on the website. There is no hospitality. The kitchen garbage wasn't emptied until... More

This was a terrific friendly place to stay, giving us the freedom to self-cater when we were tired of eating out. The room was spacious and comfortable with own en-suite, king bed and separate sitting area. It was probably the closest room to the road, but I didn't notice any noise and enjoyed deep sleeps during our 3-night stay. The... More

Our group of eight have just had a very comfortable stay at the Golden Owl Lodge. Our only regret was that we should have stayed two nights instead of one. This area is by far the most scenic part of the Rail Trail and we wished that we had allowed more time to explore it by foot as well as... More

For the price we paid, I wasn't expecting a great deal but I was seriously (and pleasantly) surprised. It was incredibly clean, the room we booked (number 4) was cosy and warm (thanks to the heater provided) and we were provided with a towel and a face cloth each. It wasn't one of the ones with an en suite, but... More

My friend and I stayed at the Golden Owl as part of cycling the Hauraki Rail Trail. Value for money the Golden Owl couldn't be bettered. The rooms were spotless with electric blankets on each bed (even the bunks). The lounge/dining room was cosy with plenty of books and games if required. The kitchen was spotless and extremely well equipped.... More
