My friend and I stayed for one night over Easter weekend. The location itself is perfect and a quick walk into the town centre for our dinner plans, or a handy 30-min drive to Hot Water Beach/Hahei/Cathedral Cove with the addition of being able to borrow shovels.
I do wish the hosts were initially more responsive as I had left a message one night asking for the king bed to be separated into two individual beds, and I had to call again the next day for the request. Then again, it was a few days before Easter so I can understand the lag time since it's quite a busy time.
Our room was on the floor level and it was nice that we parked on the grass in the front yard so we could see our vehicle from the room. However, the only thing from stopping me from a return visit specifically to this lodge is the noise level. Since we were on street level, we could hear every truck barreling down, although it did lighten up at night.
Breakfast was wonderful! I actually hadn't realized it was a bed and breakfast when I initially booked so that was a nice surprise. Loved the mushrooms and freshly squeezed orange juice. Being able to break away from the main table to our private spot at the outdoor sitting area was appreciated.More
