Jacaranda Lodge
Ranked #2 of 14 Coromandel B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 23, 2013

A great location in the countryside just outside Coromandel Town, with a garden that provides the ingredients for Robin's wonderful home made breakfasts. Rooms are nicely designed and furnished, and there's a large lounge where she lit a fire for us in November. Robin combines the skills of host and tour guide, and we very much enjoyed talking to her and other guests.

Unfortunately we spent only 1 night in this hidden gem. As it´s situated not directly on the main road this is a quiet and calm place with a lot of countrified atmosphere.
Robin runs this retreat with so much enthusiasm and gentleness that you feel like home as soon as you arrive. No question breakfast is superb and hints are useful. And if Robin surpisingly doesn´t know the answer to a question she´s researching in the web till you get your answer. Great lady in an outstanding lodge!

We had a great time at jacaranda lodge. The owner Robin is very enthusiast and full of interesting stories about New-Zealand that she nicely shared with us during breakfast. She is also very helpful in recommending visits of coromandel region, of the beaten tracks.
The lodge is well located, clean and tidy. You need to be a morning person though as it can be a bit noisy and the curtains don't fully filter the light. But this is not really an issue when you know that a great breakfast, made by the garden products, is awaiting for you.
Really, a nice stay and thanks again to Robin for the hospitality.

Outstanding experience! Clean, tidy rooms in an outstanding country setting just minutes from town. Robin, the host, couldn't be more helpful in suggesting daytime plans or places to eat. Breakfast was outstanding and made from almost all home grown fruits, veggies, eggs, and nuts. Really no reason to stay anywhere else!

This was our 2nd visit to Jacaranda Lodge (JL) after fond memories of our first 6 years ago. The setting is still as restful as before ands whilst there Robin was having the grass in the front paddocks cut and baled. The sight of hay bales lying in the sun was very relaxing and really gave the feel of 'down on the farm'. Robin continues to be a delightful host and thakfully the georgeous delicious homegrown and homemade breakfast were still as good as we remembered. The accomodation is upmarket and comfortable with a kitchen you can use to heat food or a fridge to keep things in. Whilst there are 2 comfortable lounges to relax in after an energetic days sightseeing. Thanks Robin for a really lovely time. (Photos to follow once I have sorted them out)

Room Tip: We love the garden room with it's own entrance.

This is a gem because of the care and attention of the owner Robin. She is a tireless worker who also joins her guests for breakfast with many great tales. I am sure she would provide chicken soup if required...but breakfast is a true feast of homemade goodies and fresh produce. The rooms are clean and traditional. There are books and DVDs and much local information. A lovely start for our NZ adventures. Make sure to get robins tips for what to do with your time and where to eat. Highly recommended.

From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave Robin works tirelessly to ensure your stay is the best it can possibly be.
Rooms are scrupulously clean and spacious, the blue room that we stayed in has an ensuite. The bed was superb. Robin even provides an anti mosquito plug in!
Breakfast is a smorgasboard of fresh produce from her garden.
During the day and eve there is a good kitchen with fresh fruit and biscuits. Also Two lounges and a veranda to spend time in.
Most importantly Robin is a walking encyclopaedia of the local area! Wether you are staying one day or a week - let Robin organise your days for you, you will not regret it! She will tailor your sightseeing to ensure you see the best sights in the best order.
One simply cannot ask for better from a b&b.
