What a wonderful review. Thank you so much. You are so right when you say a 4-night stay is so important to really get a good view of Northland. There is so much to do in this very under-experienced region of New Zealand that even 4 nights may well not be long enough. Chris has been perfecting some new fruit... More

My wife and I had spent 24 days in New Zealand [NZ] before coming to 88 Lodge in Kerikeri for three of our five final nights in NZ. In that time we had stayed in many wonderful B & Bs, accommodations, and motels—and we found 88 Lodge to be among the ranks of excellent NZ B & Bs. It has... More

We are so elated and appreciative that you have obviously taken so much time to prepare your kind and fulsome review. To class us as ‘amongst the ranks of excellent NZ B&B’s’ is such an accolade.

Ok, so my partner and I are generally not the 'b&b type' but thought it was time to try something different. We stayed in The Majestic Suite and in my opinion, definately worth the small extra cost.
