New Zealand's northernmost motel, Pukenui Lodge is set amongst beautiful semi-tropical gardens with spectacular views over the picturesque Houhora Harbour. Secluded and private, our Northland motel accommodation is the perfect place to escape and unwind. Just up the harbour from Houhora Heads, Pukenui is a small fishing village which has views stretching up and down the scenic harbour. Located one hour from Cape Reinga, the northernmost tip of New Zealand, and only a 15 minute drive to Ninety Mile Beach, Pukenui is a truly breathtaking spot. With such captivating surroundings there is a wealth of activities with which to amuse yourself while staying at Pukenui Lodge Motel. Visit Cape Reinga and Ninety Mile Beach available, or you can try your hand at sand boarding the giant Te Paki sand dunes, hiking, kayaking, horse treks, and quad biking. Otherwise you can simply relax and visit one of the five fabulous beaches nearby.

Stayed overnight on my way up to see the Cape. Fabulous place, room was spotless and so comfortable. It was outstanding. The view of the water and harbour from the grounds was just beautiful. Pool looked so inviting and tons of space to dine al fresco on the lawn or the tables. Great restaurant and bar and four square across the road. Perfect.

Clean, tidy and practical the accomodation is perfectly placed to break your trip to the top or as a base to explore the beautiful beaches and giant sand dunes. The room with TV, fridge and microwave was great. The property perched above the wharf has a swimming pool and a large open grassed area that catch’s the sun. If you are staying, across the road you will find the 4 Square and the Pukenui Paradise bar and restaurant.

An older style motel but exceptionally clean, freshly renovated. Host gave us the rundown of all food options before walking us to our room. A generous check-in time of 130pm. No real negatives other than the shower which had no pressure at all and the 1970s decor. Definitely would stay again.

This is one of the few motels at the north end of the north island. It is an older motel and probably not refurbished since built. That said it is very comfortable and spacious for what is costs. I am also impressed on how clean the rooms are kept. There is also a pool and laundry, a lousy take away fish chip and pizza is across the street next to a 4 square. I would stay here again.

Perfectly prepared, spotlessly clean and comfortable accommodation in a standard motel setting with a pool, close to a small shopping centre and restaurant (possibly the last en route to Cape Reinga). Wonderful bay views from a viewpoint on the motel’s lawn.
