We absolutely loved staying at Bay of Islands Lodge. We had booked an ensuite room and it had all that was required in good condition and Andy facilitated a smooth late check-in with easy instructions on how to access the room. Clean and tidy room, heater, table fan, clean ensuite toilet and bathroom. Good value for money!

We spent a couple of nights in the lodge, it's basic but clean, comfortable and functional (especially a high quality clean kitchen) and good value for money! Would recommend to those travelling round New Zealand and Andy is a helpful host.

Super friendly hosts, Andy and Lynn are so welcoming and helpful. We had a great stay. Our room was comfortable and great value. Good kitchen if you want to self cater with nice outside dining area. Bbq also good. I would also recommend the family rooms if you have kids on tour.
