Exceptional stay at this beautiful lodge. Our hosts were perfect and provided everything we could possibly need. Cath and Simon - thank you for all you did for us! The location was lovely and the food was delicious. What a perfect way to begin our 3 week visit in NZ. One of our favorite stops!

Wildwood Lodge is a truly luxurious Bed and Breakfast lodge and I LOVED it!! The main house is elegantly decorated yet homely and very comfortable.

Wildwood Lodge is a lovely house on the edge of Lake Rotoehu. The house is beautifully and comfortably furnished and the grounds (and views) are lovely. Our sleeping room had lake views and was well-appointed and very comfortable, including a large baggage room. No detail was overlooked, including fresh flowers in the bathroom. The owners, Cath and Simon, are delightful....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wildwood is a lake edge property on the shores of Lake Rotoehu, and is set on over five acres of landscaped grounds with almost two hundred meters of private lake frontage, available only to guests. No other houses can be seen from anywhere on the entire estate, and all accommodation options have private balconies overlooking the lake and Hinehopu cliffs. Suites are 400sq ft and the guest house is 700sq ft, and all have baggage and dressing rooms, well appointed en suite bathrooms and oversize walk in showers. Wildwood offers a fully inclusive tariff with breakfast, dinner, wines and Wifi included in the rate, but a B&B option is available if preferred. Wildwood is situated a little out of town and away from the sulphur smells of the city. It is a 15 minute drive from the airport for those arriving by air, and we have on site helipad and float plane docking facilities. ... more   less
