Henga Lodge was a great choice for us; we like to be away from the main centres. The Lodge ensuite rooms were very nice; clean and comfortable with views over the farm. Bernadette was such a helpful and friendly Manager; she made a vehicle available for us to hire every day we wanted and helped us map out things to see/walks to do, and arrange access to private property (a payment to landowners was an addition). The menu selection was small but the meals were nice; the continental breakfast was of a better standard than many mainland places we've stayed. So many enjoyable days spent on the Chatham Island, and a day trip out to Pitt Island was really worthwhile and enjoyable.

Henga Lodge is a great place to stay . The lodge is well appointed with magnificnet views and it is next to Henga bush . The bush walks are lovely and lead to a lovely sunset view and beach.The staff are extremely helpful - especially Bernadette who organises all the trips and contacts the people who inform you about this unique island. The cuisine is tasty - good breakfasts excellent, blue cod at a reasonable price. We enjoyed a magnificent seafood buffet with awesome large, delicious crayfish and paua!! We did a day trip to Pitt Island for a tasty lunch and tour. A Must See.

Just a couple of weeks back from a great time at Henga Lodge and the amazing Chatham Island. Took the flight over to Pitt Island which was also a highlight! The Lodge was very friendly with both staff and guests. Did a couple of walks from the Lodge down to the beach through the forest and sand dunes and into the bush. Amazing. Bernadette and her team at the Lodge were fantastic! Nothing was too much trouble and rooms serviced daily with fresh towels and cleaning. Bernadette was knowledgeable on Island History and helpful in arranging access to the islands various attractions. Highly recommended!

Great centrally located lodge on the main island, not far from the airport with good commanding views of the nearby landscapes. Run by lovely Bernadette with a good bunch of staff (some in training but doing well) and friendly locals visit. Lots of options nearby, hiring a car and going around the island, organizing a trip through the lodge or walking around the reserve to the beach. Good rooms, hot showers and friendly cat, dog and sheep! Small menu but tasty dishes available and good selection of wine and some beers. Remember its an island serviced by a cargo shop so recognise the pricing and options compared with your local area! Even so I was happy with the experience and would recommend it as a good local experience. Ensure to ask about the Kaingaroa meal if you can its on periodically and they can book you a table.

Henga Lodge is set in the lee of native forest, adjacent to Henga Scenic Reserve with views over Lake Marakapia, and its back to the extensive dunes of Long Beach and the South Pacific. The Lodge is managed by the excellent Bernadette, for whom nothing is too much trouble. She organised trips to sites, car hire, guides, which you will need as most of the islands is privately owned. A trip to Pitt Island is a highlight as is the stunning geology. The food is excellent, with plenty of fish and the rooms well appointed and comfortable. I highly recommend visiting the Chatham Island and, if you do, stay at Henga Lodge and let Bernadette look after you.
