The room was really nice and quiet with a view of a golf course. I booked it on line and it was not what I expected. It was several kilometers from Kaitaia and did not have cooking facilities. Meals were pricey but we ate in town and/or ate foods that did not have to be cooked. It would have been... More

I normally go on about getting what you pay for and if you want the best expect to pay for it, however every now and then you will find a gem a bargain and this is the case here. OK so it's in need of some updating in places but on the whole it's fantastic, the golf course is world... More

Beautiful location, had excellent during our stay there. Excellent Golf Course, first nine has a number of hidden shots which could do with more location pointers so one knows where to aim, 4th Hole in particular. Stayed in Lodge, room was average, not well laid out, heat pump should be more centrally placed. Bathroom is not well appointed, expect to... More

We had an amazing weekend at Carrington. It was a quiet weekend there but that suited us. The staff were excellent, very friendly and accommodating. The food was great the views and facilities really good. The décor might be a bit dated. If you are a golfer it is a must play. We had the course to ourselves for a... More

Probably never stayed in a nicer location. Set in an exceptional golf course overlooking Doubtless Bay. We stayed in a villa. Well equipped, even with a garage, but ageing decor and furniture.

We had booked and paid for this resort 5 months ago, and were a little disappointed on arrival to find ourselves in a dark corner room with no view of the beautiful surroundings and right on the pathway from reception to the bar / restaurant.

The accommodation was great, friendly staff. Restaurant was lousy, food average, bad service, badly trained staff. No response to inquiries. Couldn't make a tee-time. Wanted to stay two days, left after one night. Never again.

We stayed in the resort and it was just lovely, very relaxing and clean. The room cleaning for our second day was somewhat to be desired which was unfortunate as we still paid the same amount for the second day. Dinner at the winery was lovely, but in the tent was a bit of a let down. The restaurant was... More

We wanted a quiet break and we certainly got it! We were told by the lovely restaurant staff this was their busy period, over the three days (midweek) we only saw four other couples in the 10 lodge rooms! This may have contributed to a somewhat limited menu which, in my opinion, was below par (pun intended) for a resort... More
