We stayed at The Bay Lodge for our wedding anniversary in Dec for 3 nights. We were warmly greeted by the hosts and were offered a delicious afternoon tea on the house! Everything was perfect and well appointed, from room decor to cleanliness. Every detail was taken cared of! This was the most stunning place we had stayed in by far! The hosts' local knowledge was superb and they offered us recommendations on the tracks and walks that we thoroughly enjoyed.

We spent 6 fabulous nights at The Bay Lodge for our honeymoon and it was perfect. Our hosts were super and made everything easy and relaxed. We will be back :) The suite was luxurious and private, including deck and of course the magnificent view of golden bay. Enjoying the spa and watching the stars at night is a real treat. We filled our days with a scenic flight, hikes, tours, boats, in and around the Albel Tasman, Golden Bay and Farewell Spit. A truely amazing place to stay!
