. . . and warmly, welcoming hosts. This was our first night in New Zealand and we'd driven straight from Auckland airport. Exhausted after driving the twists and turns of the Coromandel Coast, but loving the views and the tumbling nasturtiums, we arrived to be greeted by the delightful Lorraine and Bill. How lucky we felt as we sat in...

At the start of a tour around New Zealand, we couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. Bill and Lorraine ensure that all guests are well looked after including a good breakfast. We stayed in the main house with stunning views over the sea....heavenly

Bill and Lorraine were great hosts at the lodge. We stayed in a little annex just above the main house overlooking the bay. We wanted for nothing, the studio was well equipped. Full breakfasts were cooked by Lorraine, served by Bill and eaten either on the terrace or in the main living area. Bill was particularly helpful with ideas of...

fantastic location with beautiful view over the bay. Pleasant and very helpful owners. Please note: it is a BandB and not a hotel; some guests apparently think they can eat there in the evening. There are few restaurants in the vicinity so eat on the way or take food to eat/prepare on site. It is a marvelous start for visiting...

During our 4 weeks in New Zealand, we were privileged to stay in 3 lodges which we rate as excellent and Kuaotunu Lodge was definitely one of these. The house is immaculate, yet homely, the view as stunning as you could hope to find (with your own little patio area from which to enjoy it) and the owners Lorraine and...

We stayed here for two nights, and what a lovely place it was. Lorraine and Bill were the most gracious, helpful, hospitable hosts you could want to meet. The room was lovely, with a stunning view and access to an amazing garden. A nearby beach was the best swimming beach we found in NZ. Our cooked breakfast was excellent and...
