“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

From the moment we arrived to the time we left Poets Corner we were made to feel completely at home by our hosts Marg and John. Our accommodation and scenery also added to the ambiance, along with all the wonderful home made goodies that Marg served up plus tips on the best places in the area. The accommodation is not only very comfortable but very well equipped and you would be hard pushed to find anywhere better so, don't delay, book today you won't be disappointed.

Marg and John were the bests hosts ever! We had such an enjoyable time at Poets Corner, met such lovely guests, relaxed in
the beatiful surroundings and enjoyed all the attention that we got from our hosts.
We really couldnt have asked for more. Meeting Marg and John will make your holiday I promise, you have to book, you will not regret it.

We stayed for two night's with Marg at Poet's Corner. The bedroom was well equipped, bed very comfortable with a good shower. The guest's communal area was stunning, comfortable sofas with a TV, dining area and very well equipped kitchen with a well stocked store cupboard and fridge. Bread was freshly baked every morning and Marg!s homebaked cakes were delicious! There was also an outside area for sitting with the most stunning views

Room Tip: All the rooms are well appointed in a small courtyard

We had a lovely stay at Poet's Corner in November, 2012.

We were provided with some great tips for exploring the area, but to be honest, the dramatic scenery and the hot-tub, fireplace, heated floors, delicious tea selections and comfy couches made it pretty hard to make it beyond the front door!

The INCREDIBLE breakfast (even made to meet my pesky dietary requirements) made us forget to eat until dinner-time.

I would absolutely recommend this place to friends and hope to return some time!

This is an amazing lodge, absolutely stunning value for money. The hosts Marg and John and friendly, welcoming and make you feel at home in their lodge. The setting is perfect, with a multi-million dollar view. You have to see it, no photo can truly show it.
The breakfast is great, Marg is a magician in the kitchen and there was an endless supply of home backing and fresh fruit on hand.
With only 4 rooms it is a personal touch, but there is enough space to not feel smothered. The surrounding Waihi region has great attractions to keep yourself busy with and Marg and John are very helpful in suggesting what you can fill your day in with.
A true 5/5, and a true Kiwi gem.

Room Tip: All are pretty much the same size/location etc.

What a find this was! Marg and John are the perfect hosts. I am torn between wanting to encourage everyone to know this place, and keeping it for ourselves. We are already planning to return with our best friends, and to stay longer. Do not turn down the offer of breakfast. I didn't need to eat again until late evening!
The place is a little out of the way, but the instructions on getting there work perfectly.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms would be fine. There is even great wheelchair access in one room.

John and Marg were the perfect hosts! This accommodation was by far the best during our stay in New Zealand and a perfect way to finish our holiday. The attention to details, from bed turn down, putting on soft music and the fire in the lounge area, to homemade cakes and slices being available at any time, were better than any 5 star hotel I have stayed at. It is a beautiful little drive from the gorgeous Gold Mining town of Waihi (a must to visit) but 100% worth the effort. For that romantic, peaceful and relaxing location you can not beat Poets Corner Lodge. I look forward to staying there again soon… and did I mention the breakfast!! Amazing selection to choose from. Marg is a brilliant chef!

Room Tip: All rooms looked perfect!
