Reviewed 2 February 2014

This motor inn is a little gem for the visiting yearling sales attendees. Only 10 minutes down the motorway to karaka, so much more convenient than staying in Auckland cbd which is a 35 minute trip. And the hosts Patrick and Bernie are delightful and have managed to provide a five star experience in a budget style lodge. Highlights of...

How fantastic to have got your review. Thank you very much indeed. It was lovely to have met you and I hope the Karaka Sales proved worthwhile. Your review of us was really comprehensive and I am glad all the TV channels were appreciated. Mac sends his friendliest and hungriest woof! I hope we get to see you again next...

Place was easy to find and there was own parking space for every room. Staff was amazingly friendly and we got fresh muffins on arrival. The room was very clean and included everything we needed. There is also possibility to do some laundry, which was nice, hosts showed how to use the washing machine and offered washing powder. It was...

We stayed at Grange lodge almost a week over New Year. Rooms are good size , kitchen well equipped and a secure little garden perfect for the kids to play. Hosts are extremely helpful, giving lots of advice on things to do etc. Maybe a little bit noisy when windows are open as it is close to a main road...

Warm cup cakes as a welcome, plenty of information by your hosts. For us it was a perfect start. Our bungalow was nice and cozy and we had a terrasse full of sunlight. Mattresses were a bit to soft for us but we had a good nights sleep anyway. Supermarket is in walking distance(15 minutes) at least for us. Besides...

The chalets were lovely and everything we needed was available. The staff were amazingly friendly, and the hot muffins on arrival was a nice touch (and perfect timing as it was afternoon tea time for the kids, and we were tired with no food purchased by that stage). Everything was clean and tidy. Our only complaint was the road noise;...

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. We loved meeting you and your family. Your children were a credit to you and our dog Mack loved them. We trust that your last minute hassles with your airline were sorted out and that you got away on time.

We stayed here at the beginning of November and we were not disappointed. Soon after we had booked I received an email from Pat & Bernie with link to local attractions. We booked a two bedroom lodge and it was perfect and had lots of useful things, like a clothes horse to dry clothes, an electrical extension lead and post...

This was our first stop over on a tour around the North Island with three of our grandchildren following our daughter's wedding in Dunedin on the South Island.

Pat and Bernie are really good hosts. On our arrival, Bernie offered us some fresh muffins that she had baked that morning (and they were delicious).

My husband, 4 year old, and I just left the Grange Lodge and we already miss it! We picked this place because of the great reviews and its proximity to the city (while still being away from the hustle and bustle of Auckland). We arrived late one evening due to several flight delays, but Pat kindly greeted us in the...
