My husband and I came here for dinner at the end of a day exploring the island. The service, food and setting are divine! We had the snapper which was probably just caught. Drinks were plenty. The apple crumble dessert was a wonderful finish. Highly recommend a visit for dinner.

We stayed here the night before heading out on the 3 day Aotea track. Amazing facility with awesome hosts - nothing was too much trouble. Pricing good with perfect breakfast before our tramp. After such a tough time with Covid 19 they went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Highly recommend to anyone wishing to experience the magic of the Barrier. They can organise everything for you to make your trip memorable.

Stayed at the Lodge as part of a Great Barrier Island package. Nothing but great things to say about our hosts / owners, Ange and Clive. A brilliantly location where we were well looked after. We had a studio unit which was perfectly fine for our stay. Food was great with plentiful portions. We managed to catch a few fish which the team were more than happy to cook up for us for dinner. Can thoroughly recommend a visit to Great Barrier Lodge

I did the Aotea track and was planning on staying at the Green Campsite which is about a 15 minute walk from the lodge and near where you can start the track. Then I saw the weather was going to be horrible and decided to stay here. So glad I did! Ang and Clive are gracious and friendly hosts who have created a vibe which encourages the locals to come visit their fabulous place for dinner. They have great food and a fully stocked bar including craft beer! The showers are hot, the rooms are comfy and many of them have decks which look out onto the beautiful bay. Such a great place. I will be back!! I hope to do kayaking trip along the west coast of the island and will stay at their place when I do! I took the photos after I spent a night there! The rooms look great when you

We chose the self contained Pioneer Cottage - a rectangular room such as early European settlers lived in, with a bathroom attached. The huge bed at one end was very comfortable and the adjacent bathroom good. The kitchen/living end had a two-ring cooktop and under grill, which was adequate for our needs, we had a delicious meal at the restaurant onsite. We thought the cottage was rather expensive for the minimal space and facilities.
