“Fabulous lodge experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

This is a fantastic lodge offering one of the nicest lodge experiences we have had. Our room was lovely, with beautiful linens, gorgeous panoramic views and very private. The food is divine in both the selection, quality and presentation of our breakfast and dinner menus. Steph and Denis are charming hosts and very welcoming. The grounds are gorgeous too. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: The top room in the quest area has stunning views.

We have just had our second stay at Tiritiri and it was as wonderful as the first time. Stephanie and Dennis are terrific hosts, they are so warm and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Tiff's food is amazing - from the homemade jams and sourdough breads to the fabulous omelets and afternoon tea cakes and biscuits - and then there is dinner! The accommodation is luxurious and elegant and so comfortable. This time we came in autumn which is a gorgeous time of the year - crisp days and fabulous colours but cold enough for a fire at night. A wonderful experience again! And we are looking forward to coming back - we have now been in winter and autumn and we definitely want to see spring and summer here.

not happy by our experience overall in tiritiri as you are not in a lodge but staying in the house of your host
they re is very little privacy as you share even kind a disturb them in their day to day life
price asking is for a luxury lodge wich is not here
one third of that would me normal
we were staying ina tiny room
as a b&b i would recommend it as your host are very very nice charming and enthousiaste to know you, the house is super new eleguant well located
but this not a luxury lodge it s a nice beautiful home stay
tiff the chef is great no misleding on that

Room Tip: choose the ensuite in the second home

tiritiri, Owner at Tiritiri Lodge, responded to this review, April 28, 2012
We’re sorry to be late responding to this review. Our fault for failing to update our security details on TripAdvisor.
We were not able to provide this guest and his family with a suitable room as it was a late booking during the busiest week of the year (Christmas/New Year). What this guest’s visit did do was to reconfirm our decision to reconfigure our rooms to provide more accommodation for families. The remodel will be completed by June 2012 so we will now be able to offer 3 large Suites to sleep up to 4 people as well as 3 King rooms. Host accommodation is outside the Lodge. So we can truly say we have taken on board this guest’s comments. We want every guest to have a fantastic stay at Tiritiri and welcome feedback. We offer returning guests a 10% discount so we hope this family will return and check out the new configuration!

Boutique standards with the personal touch, from attentive and warm hosts, Stephanie and Dennis. Luxurious accommodation in stunning 'Lord of the Rings' setting with breathtaking views and everything you need on your doorstep: walks, skiing, scenic flights, cruises, great food and wine. Highly recommended.
