Hoeke Lodge
Ranked #3 of 5 Carterton B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 February 2016

Coral and Bill are great hosts, the facilities are first class, very convenient location for a few days in the Wairarapa and a yummy breakfast.
What was amazing about our experience was meeting fellow guests - good to talk to people from other cultures. A lovely couple from Finland had rental vehicle difficulties, Bill took them to a local garage and when he heard their car was irreparable he helped them contact the tow truck and get transport to Wellington to catch the Picton ferry. Service far exceeding what you would expect from your accommodation!

Room Tip: Three rooms, all outstanding views of the countryside and Coral's beautiful garden.

We went looking for luxury, comfort and to get away from it all for a few days, and found it. Bill and Coral were fantastic hosts, with Bill's cooking a wonder to behold. Location-wise, Hoeke Lodge is convenient to most of the Wairarapa and provides a great base for day tripping. We were sorry to have to leave and would gladly stay there again in future.

If you are visiting the Wairarapa or looking to have a weekend away this is just the best place to stay, we had 2 nights here again after visiting 18 months ago, we love the Wairarapa for its cool shops and wineries. Hoeke Lodge hosts Coral & Bill are lovely and are very welcoming. Its location is very private and peaceful and the rooms are beautiful, everything about this place is total luxury. My favourite is the food just amazing i give it 6 stars, thank you Coral & Bill for looking after us again.

We had a wonderful stay in the Hoeke Lodge. The room, the scenic location and the food were all excellent. Bill and Coral were very helpful and welcoming. The lodge is beautifully decorated and I'd would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking to stay in the Wairarapa.

The first weekend away in a long while and we choose extremely well. Bill & Coral are the most amazing hosts; extremely well travelled and cultured. Every attention to detail both in the décor of all rooms to our superbly delicious menu. A very quite serene location in the back country of Carterton. Beautiful! Our stay felt like visiting great friends. Thank you Bill & Coral.

Room Tip: All rooms are of exceptional quality and are spacious.

We stayed at this wonderful lodge for 3nights. It sits on a hill with expansive views of the Wairarapa. Our hosts Corel and Bill are warm and friendly and instantly made us welcome. Corel is an excellent conversationalist, while Bill is at his happiest in the kitchen cooking up sumptuous dishes; the canapes of whitebait fritters and pork balls to name a few were as good as any we have tasted in the top restaurants of Auckland.
The rooms have exceptional furnishings, and the wet floor tiled shower and separate bath are Gold standard. The room we stayed in had THE most comfortable bed I have had the pleasure to sleep in. No-one could fault this Lodge.

The week before Valentines day, and my husband decided that we would stay in the Wairarapa as we wanted to spend some time around the Carterton area, visiting Martinborough fair, enjoying the surrounding wineries and walking in the Tararuas.

It might as well have been Valentines day, Hoeke Lodge was such a romantic place to spend a night, it was surrounded by such gorgeous countryside and breathtaking views, and the rooms were lavishly decorated very tastefully and to such a good standard.

Bill and Coral know how to make everything just so, they make sure that you have a truly memorable experience. They run an extremely professional business, making you feel as if you're special, but at the same they are such a lovely warm couple and make you feel very relaxed and welcome. I could have stayed a week not only for the lovely surroundings but to spend some more time with this lovely hospitable couple. If you want a cut above, then I would recommend this is the place for you.
