We spent four days with Geoff and Chris at 88 Lodge directly following our long international flight before exploring other parts of New Zealand. This was a great beginning to our vacation - the accommodation was lovely, well decorated with all the amenities, the grounds were

What a lovely review, thank you so much. Your 4 days with us is well remembered and it was our pleasure to assist you with your travel glitch. Spending the 4 days here was time so well spent for Northland is truly the hidden jewel in the crown of New Zealand. There is plenty to do and see and get a really good introduction to this lovely country.

I really enjoyed my stay at 88 Lodge. Geoff and Chris made me very welcome. I stayed for a week in one of the garden view rooms. It was very comfortable and had everything I needed. Breakfasts were excellent....plenty of food on offer. I was there to explore the Northland and

What a wonderful, comprehensive and informative review. Thank you so much. The town names you were having a little trouble with are Paihia & Russell. You were so wise in allocating 6 days of your holiday for Northland. It really is the unsung hero of New Zealand that so many tourists miss. As you say, so much to do and 88 Lodge is so well placed to get the best of everywhere. We would love to see you back at 88 Lodge and next time perhaps we can win the pub quiz!!

I stayed 3 nights in the majestic suite. It is down a gravel road, look at the numbers closely on the mail boxes to find it. It's a large room, with a sofa, plenty of counter space and it's own entrance. There is another door to the main part of the house to use for

Thank you for your review. This is much apprciated. 88 Lodge is on a gravel road but in NZ such roads are commonplace, indeed in Northland alone there is over 2000KM of this type of road. However there are benefits, one of which is the peace and quiet this gives us. Our road is infact a loop road so there is little or no passing traffic. Because we have no passing traffic we also do not have a sign at the front of our property, with the mailbox numbers proving to be effective for location purposes. Our WiFi is always appreciated for we have strong signal throughout the Lodge and grounds with boosters ensuring there is plenty of signal for everyone no matter how many gadgets/Smart TV's etc are in use. Rocco is a gem who is just so popular with guests.

My wife and I stayed at 88 Lodge in the Kentia Suite away from the main property in the tropical garden, very peaceful and secluded. Geoff and Chris made us very welcome and catered to our every need in providing excellent breakfasts to order in the main house, and information

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Our Kentia Suite is only available via our own website 88lodge.co.nz because we like to keep a spare for special visitors and you were certainly that. Just adjacent to the main house and as you say so private and peaceful. Our swimming pool has been a huge bonus for guests in this summer’s high temperatures. We would love to welcome you back when you are next in Northland.

Very nice, well maintained, a little out of the way, but very quiet B & B with a wonderful garden. The owners receive you very personally and try to fulfill every wish. Also the breakfast is served to individual wishes - great. I had a wonderful stay! For dinner, it is advisable

We were not able to identify who exactly you are so that we can give you a personalised 'Thank You'. Nor able to perhaps positivly respond to the comment 'a little out of the way'. Yes on a map that does appear so but those who stay with us for more than one night do get to appreciate that we are vertually on the crossroads of Northland and getting to all that is best in Northland is in fact so easy from 88 Lodge. We have also messured up the distance from us to nearest pub, restaurant, dairy, supermarket, garage, petrol station, doctors, pharmacy, take-a-way, shops and major attraction and compared this to a similar calculation from other bed and breakfasts in the area. We are actually jointly nearer to all of these facilities. Thank you for allowing us to put this message out there. Our breakfasts do so regularly attach positive comments and we are so pleased you enjoyed the breakfast experiance at 88 Lodge.
