“Lovely Surprise in Hahei”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

We were lucky enough to stay in this extremely friendly establishment at Hahei this past weekend for 1 night for a family wedding. Management was welcoming and our double bed room unit for 4 adults was well appointed, exceptionally clean and well cared for. will definitelybe back for another stay.

Room Tip: The two bedroom corner unit was excellent and very sunny,

Perfectly located to visit Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach. Hahei is a small town so plan dinner early. Cafe next door makes a great breakfast and lunch. A brewery will be opening next door any day now.

We stayed in a private double room (shared bathroom) at the backpacker part of Tatahi Lodge. It was beautifully clean in the bedroom and bathroom and had the cleanest backpacker kitchen we've ever seen. The gardens are a subtropical paradise and the location is quiet and very close to the beach. The staff are very friendly, helpful and approachable. We would love to return!

Had a lovely time at Hahei, visited Whitianga, Cooks Beach, Hot Water Beach, got our feet week in the surf at all the beaches. Gem Bay was a very powerful experience. Easy walk to the beach and shops. :-)

Room Tip: I think we had the best room, bedroom was at the end not next to another room in the next unit.

The only thing that could make this place better if it was right on the beach (although a less than 5 minute walk is a good compromise).

We stayed in the cottage which looks exactly like the photos on the website and was nice and private. All the staff were welcoming and couldn't ensure our stay was better!

I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed three nights in a two-bedroom unit. This was very nicely furnished and had large windows looking out onto beautiful subtropical gardens, which had pleasant areas for sitting. The motel's location is excellent - very peaceful yet only a short stroll to the shops, including the excellent Hahei Beach Cafe, and a ten-minute walk to beautiful Hahei beach. The staff were very nice and gave helpful answers to our questions about the area.

We arrived at Tatahi Lodge and were upgraded to a beautiful 2 bedroom villa. Very spacious and clean. Large windows so lovely and light, and we had our own garden and driveway with grapes growing. Really lovely and comfortable.
