We stayed at Gore Bay Lodge for one night. The room was very spacious, comfortable and well equipped (with a small kitchenette area). It was spotlessly clean and the shower was great. Our room overlooked the beach and the views were stunning. We enjoyed hearing the waves at night and watching the sunrise from the balcony in the morning.

This is a stunning location close to the beach and well appointed. The self contained unit was beautifully kept, clean and spacious. There is a microwave, kettle and fridge which makes it a handy space. The room is a good space with beautiful sea views. Jill is a great host and she even had a heater in the room heating...

Gore Bay Lodge has an enviable beach side location with memorable sun rise view over the sea. The room was very comfortable and well appointed, and the owners were very friendly. Ideally located for relaxing walks along the beach. If you are travelling south from here, the Mainline Cafe at Domett is superb for breakfast.

Excellent choice of a home-stay type of holiday accommodation, a few guestrooms sharing the family home: just about spot-on in all directions. We had 2 rooms - one ocean-front (great views, but only of a moody sea tiding in, out and back in again - you'd starve before you saw a ship) and the other round the side. Jill was...

We usually choose to stay in a Hotel or Motel but thought we would try something different. Gore Bay Lodge had everything we would usually have. Our room had all we required. We weren't wanting to cook meals so the wee kitchenette with kettle, toaster & microwave was all we needed. The sea view from the balcony was just perfect...

Gore Bay is not far from SH1 and provides a beautifully quiet stopover. The hosts are welcoming. We were offered a choice of accommodation. We could have had a larger unit at the rear of the premises with larger bathroom and more fully equipped kitchen but with less of a sea view or a smaller room with smaller bathroom and...

Nice enough place but felt (and in fairness we are comparing to apartments we had rented on a trip) that in terms of value for money and attention to detail this accomodation was some what lacking. Very small bathroom and really only enough space to make toast and a cup of tea no cooking facilities as such apart from microwave....

The accommodation is beautiful, the owners are so welcoming and the scenery from the room is stunning. We found the motel by chance and we would strongly advise anyone to stay. It was one of the most wonderful experiences of our holiday, thank you for helping to make our trip to New Zealand so memorable. Ron & Irene Middleton

Just what I needed-some quiet time with a view before Christmas madness descends...and we got it.Spotless rooms,respectful and hosts who let us have privacy when we needed it and soooo lovely - nothing was a problem. Best view in the world and Gore Bay is still a secret from the world.
