“Beautiful B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

What a lovely location overlooking the bay.

Very welcoming hosts and shown to a beautiful bedroom, very spacious with a balcony and an amazing view. Lovely gardens and swimming pool to enjoy.

Whangamata is a lovely seaside resort.

After dinner returned to the B&B and enjoyed a glass of wine with our host and a couple of guests in a lovely little bar in the garden.

Very tasty breakfast enjoyed on the patio in the sun.

On our arrival at our next night's accommodation we realised we had left the charger for our I pad in the bedroom at Brenton Lodge, we made a phone call and they very kindly offered to forward it to one of the hotels on our itinerary thank you so much.,

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our recent visit to the Coromandel Peninsula. What a great find! Our room was large and airy and bright with a sitting room area in addition to the bedroom area. Very clean and comfortable as well with good bedding and good bath towels. Bathroom a little small but well laid out.

Location affords lovely views and the gardens are delightful as well.

Finally, the inn keepers are marvelous - friendly, helpful and delightful. Breakfasts are made by the husband and they are wonderful - menu to choose from provided the night before with plenty of choices. Served outside on a lovely patio area. We also opted to have dinner there our first night - prepared by the wife - one of our best meals in New Zealand. The food was well prepared, beautifully presented and delicious.

A little way out of the Town centre, but the situation, rooms, service, breakfasts all superb. Dinner in if you choose to have it is as good as it gets. The proprietors are wonderfully friendly, welcoming and provide a great experience in this beautiful part of the North Island. Don't miss it!

Room Tip: They are all terrific!

Whangamata is beautiful, and the Brenton Lodge is just a perfect place to stay. We were made to feel so welcome. Extremely friendly hosts, beautiful accommodation, and stunning surroundings. Highly recommended

This is an amazing place to stay. Fabulous setting, incredible views and great people who run it. Sallie and Dave were lovely people. This was the beginning of our NZ trip and we have yet to experience better. The breakfast on the terrace was brilliant. Only four lodges so book early! Thanks for a great time, we would definitely go back!

Room Tip: There are only four lodges, all great.

Really lovely place, set on a ridge set back from the town, with a stunning view over the Pacific and the roar of the surf. Beautiful accommodation, a warm welcome from the kind and friendly hosts, and best breakfast I've had in ages. I absolutely loved this place, among the very best of my tour of NZ. A great base from which to explore the Coromandel.
