Pillows Lodge
Reviewed February 13, 2011

after arriving here we were told that we had to be quiet due to other residents at the lodge, yet we explained that we were a team taking part at the Nationals held in his area, told us we could not use the spa cause he thought we would spread germs in the spa, so he empty it out, meaning we had to go else were, was quick to get rid of us, because he had people moving in, which we later found out was not the case, overall would not becoming back to place, instead would recommend to other teams, that this place is not suitable for teams, and is over priced, which is a whole story all together.

My husband and I stayed here for a single night on our way back to Auckland. Great location (across from the beach and near hot springs resort), very clean, friendly manager, and nice atmosphere. Internet, laundry, and kitchen available.

I'd definitely stay here again.
