Every time we stay here it is clean and the service is fantastic. The breakfasts are really yummy and the welcome cup of tea is lovely. Pretty location across from the beach. Troy is so friendly as is the rest of the staff.

Spacious, extra clean, shower is great - high pressure and extra toiletries. Well set up for well stocked kitchen facilities, bed and pillows are great and wireless is quite fast. In summary, very happy to have found this motel right opposite a lovely little beach. Have already booked my next stay.

Stayed at the lodge on Saturday. We were warmly welcomed and shown into a lovely spacious apartment. The room was fresh, modern and beautifully clean.There was even an outdoor area. Would not hesitate to stay there again and would recommend to anyone wanting to stay on the hibiscus coast. It is also just across the road from a beach.

Dear Tricia, was lovely having you stay with us over the weekend. Thank you for making the time to write this review. Look forward to seeing you when you can make it back up here and look to have the same Premium Deluxe studio room which is my favourite also.
Kind regards

What can be more lovely than to arrive at a beautiful lodge after a drive through the rain of a New Zealand winter. We were met with great warmth by Troy, who had already been in communication with us by email. He helped us get settled in, brought us tea and extra blankets and left us to explore. This is a beautiful Lodge. Unfortunately we were only staying one night, but this will be a definite for our next trip. We had a huge room, with comfy seating, a fully-equipped kitchen, a choice of indoor or outdoor tables, and the most amazing bathroom: design largely due to Tomoko, Troy's wife, who ensured fabulous Japanese touches with the rain shower, the delicate arrangement of toiletries and huge fluffy towels in bamboo and white, so it all felt more a home than a hotel or lodge. Troy also showed me how to use the laundry facilities and gave advice on the area, and our route the following day. There is a lovely little beach across the road with amazing views at sunrise.

Room tip: They all seem great and there is a ramp to access upper floor

Dear Christine,
Lovely to hear from you and thank you for taking the time to review the Lodge. As always we are thrilled when guests leave us knowing that they will be back again and all the small things we have in place are appreciated.
Regarding sunrise....they have installed a new walkway around the beach now and the sunrise has to be the best on the coast now from here....next time!

Take care and kind regards
Troy & Tomoko
