We really enjoyed this lodge. The lodge is on a hill with a terrific view over the bay and it is very quiet with forest around. It is an easy walk down to the waterfront. Our hosts were terrific - very helpful with finding restaurants and fishing charters: we came as lodgers and left as friends. Highly recommended

Had 3 wonderful nights at Tarltons where our hosts Peter and Katalina were a wonderful source of information and assistance. Breakfast was a wonderful treat and an afternoon spa overlooking the Bay of Islands was a suberb ending to a busy day. Perched on a hill overlooking the Bay, it was only a few minutes drive down to numerous restaurants...

We had the most incredible 3 days at Tarltons Lodge. We were greeted with the most amazing sea view. Waking up & enjoying the most divine breakfasts, sitting on the balcony & soaking up the morning sun & the most beautiful view every day was such luxury. The gorgeous spa pool that each room has was pure paradise & indulgence!...

In March 2017, my partner and I stayed at Tarlton's Lodge for two nights. What a lovely place with fantastic views. Peter and Katilina could not be more helpful in making our stay comfortable. The weather wasn't so nice. So much rain but that did not damping our stay. The first morning's breakfast was lovely, sitting out on the verandah...

We recently spent 2 nights at Tarlton's Lodge and both agreed it was the best accommodation we had on our holiday in New Zealand. Luxurious is the word - from the beautifully appointed room with a glorious view to the delicious breakfast served on the terrace, the welcome hot tub after a long day's driving and to top it off...

Well, we read about this place here on Trip Advisor, but it turns out one has to see it and the folks that run it to believe it. Picture the most modern, best sized and appointed hotel room you ever stayed in, throw in a deck with a hot tub, a 180 degree view of a wonderful seascape and well,...
