We had booked the last 3 days of our upper North Island holiday at the Waipoua Lodge and based on previous reviews, we had high expectations. I can quite comfortably say that the Lodge and the lovely Ann & Fiona, exceeded those expectations in pretty much every way.
The room was fabulous, the meals were exquisite, the grounds and location was stunning and Ann & Fiona were friendly and professional, there when you needed them and invisible when you didn’t.
The location is a short drive from all the delights of the Waipoua area - the forest, Trounson Kauri Park, Manganui Bluff and The Kai Iwi Lakes.
3 days of bliss went by too fast and we eventually had to bid goodbye to Ann & Fi. We will be back soon.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights for his birthday and we had an absolutely fantastic time. We were the only guests staying and Ann & Fiona made us feel very welcome right from the beginning.

On our first night as we decided that we were going to find dinner elsewhere they recommend the local pub about 10 minutes south, which we very much enjoyed. Our full day at the lodge was very comfortable and relaxing with a fantastic home cooked breakfast, followed by a lovely bush walk and then relaxing time in the sun (suddenly there were seats in the garden, or on the porch ready for us). We explored the area, then returned to the lodge for a spectacular dinner prepared by our hosts. The food was fantastic and very very tasty, both breakfast and dinner and Ann and Fiona went out of their way to include anything extra that we asked for.

Our room was very comfortable and spacious with lots of little homely treats to make us feel welcome. The main attraction for us was the spa pool, which we constantly used and throughly enjoyed.

We definitely recommend this place to everyone, it was well worth the cost and we will be back. Thank you Ann and Fiona for making us feel so welcome and for helping us celebrate my husbands special day.

I could be writing a horror story.....it was a dark and stormy night, the phone was out, flood waters lapping at the side of the road, the only sound came from the kitchen, and the room glowed orange due to the roaring fire..... and its all true, except it was far from a terrifying experience!

We happened to be booked in to Waipoua Lodge in the week Northland had a 1 in 500 year flood event. We chose to continue with our plans, and we are so glad we did. We pretty much had the lodge to ourselves, the only company being our hosts Annie and Fi. And what great hosts! Friendly, hospitable, out of sight unless we wanted them, obliging without being pushy, and excellent company when we asked them to share the evening with us.

Moreover, they were the cooks, and pretty damned good! We enjoyed tasty locally styled cuisine, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented, ample portions - just right!! Our evening in the main lounge was perfect relaxation - fire, wine, chat.

Our accommodation was homely. Large spacious bedroom, an amply proportioned lounge, self contained dining amenities, and quality and comfort all around. Any of the 4 guest suites would have pleased us.

The large gardens, native bush outlook and easy walking tracks gave us plenty of scope to stretch when it was raining, and with the Waipoua Forest, Tane Mahuta, Kai Iwi Lakes and other outdoorsy stuff within easy reach it was surprisingly easy to fill our our 2 days.

Your cellphone wont work due to the location, but there is ample internet. So a perfect spot to tune out, feet up, read a book, take in nature, and rediscover that old skill of conversation.

What did i like most? Hopefully they run with the new spicy apple cake dessert they were experimenting. And Fi makes an awesome morning coffee.

What did i like least? Departing.

Would I stay there again? Damned right I would. Actually, we already made plans to.

Amazing lodge in a great location, close to the Kauri forest and the beach. We stayed in the tack room, really comfortable and warm with a nice outlook on to the well kept grounds. If you like walks it’s close to Trounson Kauri Park and Maunganui Bluff beach or if you simply want to relax, Waipoua lodge is perfect to just unwind in the hot spa or relax by the fire with a book. Thanks to Fiona and Ann, you were great hosts and we will definitely be back

After lockdown and days of cold wintry rain - we needed a break. A couple of days being cosseted in elegant surroundings, with good food, beautiful scenery, and not too far way would be perfect. And so it turned out!
Anne and Fiona looked after us like we were royalty making sure we had the time we dreamed yet judging the perfect moments for friendly chats and tales of the old lodge's own story among the magnificent kauri trees of the Waipoua Forest and its journey from a family-built homestead to international standard boutique lodge.
There are four, separate, individual accommodation suites, we stayed in The Stables. It has a well appointed lounge, one bedroom with a very large comfortable bed and quality linen, a large bathroom and huge bath.
We'll look forward to our return to tranquility base! Either to bliss out away from wet wintry weather or to enjoy crisp sunny days in the gardens, the spa pool, the forest or on the famous west coast beaches.
