We selected the Lodge for a quiet R & R short stay and were welcomed and hosted by Angeline and Clive who understood and we were treated royally beyond our expectations.
Delightful accommodation and excellent restaurant.
The peace and quiet , surrounded by magnificent native bush with harbor views were refreshing.
A lot of local history in this harbor from whaling, timber industry, fishing and even some mining were of great interest.
Recommend you visit.

We stayed on a boat in Whangaparapara Harbour to join family who were staying at the lodge. The setting was very relaxing and a nice spot for kids to play on the lawn. Easy to tie up the dinghy to the wharf a short walk away. We ate at the lodge - great food. One night they even cooked up our filleted snapper catch for us. Small store for supplies and bait. Kauri falls 30 min walk away is a nice waterfall pool to swim in. Great place to call in on the boat.

A small group of us recently stayed at Great Barrier Lodge, our expectations were blown out of the water! The hosts (Angeline, Clive & Jack) were very hospitable and went out of their way to make our stay amazing! We took advantage of the package that Angeline put together this included meals, accommodation, rental vehicles and a half day fishing charter! Would totally recommend this place and we look forward to returning again soon.

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.
