Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent 2 nights at On The Track Lodge and had a very relaxing and enjoyable visit. We took up the package deal of drop off at the start of the Nydia Track, 2 nights in the railway carriage, all meals and tea and coffee and then pick up at Duncan Bay when we were dropped off at our car in the Garden Motel, Havelock. We kayaked, swam in the sea, dangled around the Lodge grounds, took a walk to the incline and read some books. Our hosts, Karleen and Warren were exceptional hosts who even invited us to a local's get together at the Lodge on our last day where we met with very friendly people and shared our stories. Our accommodation was homely and warm and the food was delectable. We highly recommend a stay at the Lodge. What a quirky and welcoming place to be.

Great facilities, lovely setting, well organised, friendly, helpful staff. Great to have paddle boards and sea kayaks available for use. Rudders not working properly on a couple of them, but they're for free so can't expect a full-time maintenance manager!

It was an absolute treat to stay at On the Track Lodge. Comfortable accommodation, excellent food and welcoming hosts. A little oasis on the Nydia track. Highly recommended. Thanks Warren and Carlene.

A fabulous place to spend a rest day when walking the Nydia Track. The accommodation was great, a large room with a comfy bed and wonderfully clean showers and toilets nearby. The food was all home made and delicious. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful when we needed to cut short the walk due to bad weather. Another plus is that you can have an amazing massage from a qualified masseuse, Donna. I highly recommend staying at ‘On the track lodge’.

A welcomed treat at the end of an enjoyable 12 km walk, to rest and relax before tramping another 15 kms the following day. We loved On the Track Lodge – the peaceful location, the cosy yurt, plentiful food, warm showers, hospitality and the spa. A superb way to tramp and glamp in a stunning part of New Zealand.

A magical place to stay. Warren & Carlene were fantastic hosts and made us feel very welcome. Beautiful food and accommodation, plus extra treats put on for new years eve. Great facilities for a place that is off the grid and using mainly solar power. The hot tub and drying room were great as we arrived with very wet gear!! Would highly recommend to anyone walking the track.

Cute spot, very clean, great food and hosts. A great spot to relax for a couple of days, especially if you’ve walked in. Booze fridge, beds and linen provided, games and books , what more could you need!

Absolutely one of the best experiences we had while traveling to New Zealand! We would highly recommend this lodge to anyone...a solo traveler, couples, groups, or families! A fantastic lodge nestled in a secluded bay with exceptional and friendly managers. The food was amazing and fulfilling. The lodge itself was incredibly clean and beautiful. Plenty of activities to do at the lodge itself...hiking, paddleboarding, kayaking, etc. We bike-packed the Nydia Track and chose to stay at the On the Track Lodge for two nights. If you have come across this lodge, consider yourself lucky and book it right away!

Beautiful setting. Clean, comfy cabins. Great food and helpful,attentive and friendly managers. Hot tub and kayaking a real bonus. Massage and van pick up and drop off service recommended! First hour of walking track. if walking from Havelock is steepest bit. Varying vegetation, birdlife and views, peaceful. Definitely recommend.
