This is a wonderful place to stay up near the Bay of Islands. The property is a botanical garden, and the pool was a delightful, tropical refresher after a long drive. The breakfast was superb, and eating out on the verandah in the garden was a treat. ☺Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Ein Ort zum Wohlfühlen ☺Eine sehr schöne Unterkunft mit einem tollen Garten und Pool. Alles war sehr sauber. Jeden Tag Room-Service. Tania, unsere Vermieterin war sehr, sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Ein sehr gutes Frühstück. Ein idealer Standort für alle Aktivitäten in Northland. ☹Wenn man wie wir mehrere Tage dort ist, sollte man die größere Wohnung buchen.

It did work well for you basing yourselves here for all your Northland adventures 👏 I hope Wolfgang has been practicing the word 'plunger' 😀 😉 Yes the Takahe Suite is great for a long stay.

You have to stay here!! It is paradise and for us it felt like the clocks stopped as we slowly started to unwind. The gardens are stunning including the breakfast on offer. Tania and Troy are such beautiful soles and will make sure your stay is wonderful. We stayed here for 6 nights which was about right for everything you can see in and around Kerikeri you will have plenty to see. The pool and hot tub was also lovely after a hot day. Thank you for hosting us Tania and Troy we will definitely be back. Xx

Lovely accommodation and grounds; noisy when neighbours next door. ☺ I liked ordering our breakfast the night before and having it delivered to our room the next morning. And it was a great breakfast! ☹ Our first night, we were the only guests and it was lovely. The second night there were guests next door and we could hear them through the walls. The walls need some sound insulating. It felt like they were right on top of us.

Kia ora Maria, thanks for taking the time to post a review 😊 I'm sorry we didn't provide a room that met your expectations 😢 There is basic sound insulation in the walls but obviously it's not enough. We will now investigate further soundproofing, so thank you for letting us know. Nga mihi

Pāteke lodge is one that makes you proud to be from New Zealand, knowing that others are going to experience this kind of stay. The hosts went above and beyond at every point in our stay, and the location, accommodation, and food were top tier. Thank you so much Tania for a beautiful stay, and the incredible hospitality. We will be back :)

Hey Fahren, wow, thanks!! Reading your kind words fills us with immense pride but also, because we're New Zealanders, that comes with a good dose of humility! We are absolutely delighted that we were able to provide you with a memorable experience in the Far North. We would love to see you again some time! Tania and Troy

Pateke Lodge was amazing, we would definitely come back to stay here! The grounds are well maintained, with beautiful gardens, a nice pool and spa. The room and ensuite were spacious and tidy, but most memorable were the food and the hosts. Tania was very nice and accommodating. The communication was clear and friendly, then after arrival we felt really looked after. She also delivered a beautiful breakfast to our door each morning for us to enjoy on the sunny balcony. 10/10
