Lion's Den
Reviewed 28 December 2009

We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it. Nothing fancy, a bit quirky, but we found it quiet, clean, and the beds were comfortable. Ok, so there were no locks on the doors, but it has a fun vibe and the courtyard is delightful. The kitchen / lounging area was much better than most. Paid internet available. Free parking. Good showers. Very friendly staff.

Coromandel is wonderfully relaxing. While it is not located on the beach (no real beach in Coromandel) there were several lovely beaches just a short drive away that you'll have all to yourself. Worth a visit. All in all, a good value.

What an amazing place! This backpackers in Coromandel Town in NZ is basic (it is a backpackers) and a bit short of amenities but the guidebooks are right that it is like a flashback from the 60s. In spite of all the great reviews it is still very unpretentious, cheap and fun. There are no locks and one of the bedrooms is a teepee in the garden. Stay there if you can!

I visited this wonderful place in August 2007, just turned up at the front door!!! It's animal theme is all part of it's charm....delightful fairy lights through the trees in the small yard separate the main house from the visitor's accommodation. I believe you can get breakfast there as well, although I was up and out too early! Lovely friendly Lounge come dining room come kitchen makes it a very sociable place to meet new people. This was my favourite place to stay in NZ!
