What Can I Say ? - this place was just great. From the minute we arrived and were welcomed by Ruth and John, we knew we had made the right choice.
We stayed in the cottage - it was neat as a pin and very, very clean. All amenities were modern with a kitchen, bathroom, lounge and dining as well as the 2 bedrroms. We had our own deck that looked out towards the Bay of Islands and our own BBQ too.
Allure Lodge is within walking distance of the town and thankfully, is a few streets away from all of the backpacker accomodation which could get a little raucous on some nights.
I don't know why the other vistor complained. We did not have trouble with parking (it was a bit tight but there was space to turn around and plenty of spots to park in). Nor was the shower an issue - this is a large, double modern shower which you could fit the whole family in. If the water goes on the floor - just move your bath mat!
Best of all, the owners are friendly and helpful. They are willing to offer suggestions regarding eating out and trips and are not pushy at all. I would recommened (and have already done so) and we hope to return.
