We had a lovely overnight stay at this B&B. Lovely, bright rooms with amazing views. Very clean and very good breakfast. Will stay there again. Jeanette was very friendly and couldn't have done any more to help us make the most of our visit - even letting us watch the All Blacks beat France with our breakfast!

Hi Tim, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us - we are glad you enjoyed your stay.

Our room had two bedrooms and a nice lounge and kitchen. The property had recently been maintained and the whole place looked in great condition. Sitting on the huge terrace was magical at any time of day and perfect for a sun downer. We were comfortable and really enjoyed our stay, travelling out by car but you could walk down... More

The best thing is the wrap around terrace with fantastic views.... More

This is the first time we have stayed in a bed and breakfast so we were wondering how it would work out. Answer, fabulous. Jeanette, the owner is a wonderful hostess and as other reviewers have noted she is most knowledgeable about the area where she has lived since 1980. The lodge is an old house that has been refurbished... More

We stayed two nights at the lodge just expecting to stay at a regular standard B&B. When we arrived we were greeted at the door by Jeanette, a bubbly, charming host who invited us into her home.

We stayed one night here and enjoyed the lovely views and quietude. Jeannette went out of her way to make us feel welcome and fixed a gluten free breakfast for me. Not far out of Auckland and some good places to eat in village as well.
