“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

From a quaint exterior, it is hard to believe this old-timer can turn on the charm!
But as we soon found out it, the bridge house has been around for some 170 years and today is equipped with 14 en-suites, conferencing facilities, a sports bar, games room and restaurant with gorgeous fireplaces.
What we found amazing was that the culinary choices matched the staff attitude and the pricing! All superb!
We enjoyed the ambience of sitting on the verandah overlooking the old bridge and river, watching the ducks wade past. The food was Michelin Star quality and the plating was delightful and ever so more-ish!
We definitely recommend this restaurant and lodge as a MUST DO!
Congratulations to all who run, maintain and work there!

“Too pricey for what was on offer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

We felt that the meals were just too expensive, considering what was available and especially at lunchtime.

“Good Lodge with a nice bar and retaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

After a our drive through the "Kauri-forrest", which was really impressing, we ended up in Warkworth and the Tourist Information Center. They were so nice. Many hotel were fully booked, but they managed to get a room for us at the Bridge House.
The rooms are nice and big. The bathroom was good enough!
We decided to have a couple of drinks in the bar and decided to eat there as well. That was a good decision! The meal was excellent! We did have fresh greenlipped Mussels in a fantastic sauce. Probably one of the best mussel-dishes we ever had!
