My husband and I enjoyed a very pleasant three nights at the Lodge, enjoying the company of guests from the US, UK and South Africa. When choosing small places such a this, we are choosing individuality, a more personal experience than a similarly-priced, more luxurious suite at a conventional hotel, and we were not disappointed. Our room was pleasant and very quiet, with a beautiful and tranquil view from the balcony. Two excellent in-house dinners were competently cooked and served, generous supplies of spirits and wine were available (would not have minded more choice with the wine!) and breakfasts simple and delicious - excellent juice, fresh fruit, breads, croissants and reasonable range of cereals, and a cooked dish if required. We very much enjoyed our fellow-guests' conversation and the unobtrustive company of Peter and Glennis. Discussions of "lodge or B&B" are somewhat meaningless: the pricing accurately places the Lodge in the mid-range between comfortable and ultra-luxury. The Bay of Islands is a beautiful part of the world and the Lodge occupies a very attractive, very comfortable and individual space within it.
