Felt within moments that we had known Sallie and David for some time, and that they were genuinely pleased to see us. Other people have commented on the facilities and standards set by these two good people - we just felt at home, and what more is there to say? This was our second stay on our New Zealand holiday,...

This room is in the grounds of the large and beautifully laid out gardens, and is reached by climbing an external stair to a wooden balcony/deck. From here there is a panoramic view of the town and sea. The room was very comfortable and...

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay at Brenton Lodge, staying in May, we can't always rely on good weather, but as you breakfasted on the terrace one morning it must have been OK, all of which adds to the memories of a wonderful holiday.

Back in January we started our month long trip to New Zealand. We decided to stay in the Coromandel on our first stop as it was close to Auckland and after a long flight we wanted to chill out somewhat.
