We stayed for 2 nights at Brenton and felt well looked after. Our room was of a good size, with a perfect view of the town, coast and islands from the verandah. We enjoyed a peaceful few hours in the garden, before a great meal cooked by Sallie. Sallie and David were great hosts and their lodge is perfectly placed...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Beautiful suite of rooms up a flight of stairs. Views across to the sea from our verandah. Very comfortable bed and lovely shower room. Loved our little sitting room/dining area - so much space. Drinks on the verandah were perfect. Breakfasts, one inside a lovely dining room and one outside on the terrace, were...

We had three wonderful nights stay at Brendon Lodge just before New Year. It was easy to find driving from Auckland using our GPS (which we always bring on our holidays). We were warmly greeted on arrival and delighted with our accommodation. It was very private and had fabulous views of the beautiful garden and pool and the ocean down...

We stayed for 2 nights whilst exploring the Coromandel area. The lodge is in a great spot, about 5 mins drive out of the village. The views are beautiful and the accommodation maximizes this. Our room had a lovely balcony patio, and the room itself was bright, airy and spacious with lots of windows for letting in light, birdsong and...

2 night stay in October and could have stayed longer, in a quiet area on the outskirts of Whangamata. The room was lovely, ours was up steep steps but I think easier access ones were available.
