“Gorgeous B & B with Superb Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2010

Our stay at the Flagstaff Lodge was wonderful. Each room was decorated differently with a modern luxurious decore with attention to detail and comfort at ever level. We loved the lighing and colors which gave a warm cozy feeling. The common area was perfect for guests to relax, enjoy a glass of wine while listening to soft music. Dani was an superb hostess, nothing was ever too much trouble and the morning breakfast was outstanding! Location was perfect, about 2 blocks from town center!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2010

Don't really know where NZ draws the line between a lodge and an upmarket B&B but we would have classed the Flagstaff in the latter, albeit with a super expensive price tag. There are just four rooms, we had the Pacific room, which was very nice although a tad cramped compared with what we had experienced elsewhere in NZ and considering the price, and we were there for three nights too.
Our double doors let out straight onto the deck, with a partial view of the bay through the trees and telegraph wires. It was a bit too public, however, for our liking, as the road ran in the front and to the side of the property. It was not heavy with traffic but there were lots of walkers, which made keeping the net curtains shut a necessity most of the time.
Our host, Danni was simply lovely, and nothing was too much trouble. The glass (or two!) of wine in the evening with the other guests, plus local cheezes, was one of the highlights of our busy days. The property is located just 5 minutes' walk from some excellent restaurants, we we would especially recommend the Kamakura, where we ate twice out of our three nights and on both nights the service and food were absolutely excellent.
