During my recent trip to Auckland, my friend and I stayed at the Lone Kauri Lodge and it was a wonderful experience. Ann and Keith are very warm and accomodating. When we first arrived, Ann immediately greeted us outside and asked if we would like to switch our room from one king sized bed to two double beds (since there were two of us). Naturally, we asked for the two beds. We dropped our stuff off and headed back out to do a Hobbiton tour (about 2 hours away). Before we left, Ann provided us with a Lord of the Rings travel guide for us to look at during our drive out there. We did our tour and arrived back around 10:30PM and were greeted by Keith and chatted with him for a bit. He asked about our trip and prepped the hot tub for us and asked what time we would like breakfast the next morning. The hot tub was awesome too. After a long day of driving/travelling, it was definitely what we needed. The beds were also very comfortable and my friend and I slept well. The next morning, they gave us a huge breakfast of fresh fruit, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, coffee, and tea. Very tastey. I would definitely stay here again...thanks again, Ann and Keith!
