Hospitality and facilities were so good I stayed an extra few days. The bedroom was easily comparable to a luxury hotel but the grounds were off the scale. You started the day with a delicious breakfast of your choice with many home made products grown in the garden or locally sourced.

Our breakfasts and gardens are just two of our points of difference and we are so pleased you so enjoyed them both. Many tourists only come up to Northland for 2 nights only giving one full day to ‘do’ this lovely area of NZ. We know you so enjoyed what this region has to offer that the extra days were... More

88 Lodge is an oasis of peace and tranquillity on the periphery of Kerikeri, a lovely little town located in the North of North Island, near the Bay of Islands. The surrounding countryside is beautiful, and at 88 Lodge you will receive a warm welcome from Geoff and Chris, who are careful to take care of and anticipate every need.... More

Our Majestic Suite is not only named so because of the Majestic Palm in the gardens nearby but also because the suite is Majestic in itself.

We had a majestic stay in the majestic suite. The room and the home was as described. Excellent quality furnishings and surrounding. The bed linen was quality Egyptian cotton. It demonstrates that if you pay a little more for accommodation you can get excellent value for money. Our hosts were charming and most welcoming as well as being helpful concerning... More

With apologies: This response should go with the review “Oasis of Tranquillity” and the response on that review should go with the review titled “Majestic Stay”.

The combination of a private room with access to the main house provided for plenty of contact with the generous hosts as well as private times in our well furnished room.

This was a wonderful place to stay. Geoff and Chris couldn't have been more welcoming. The surroundings are beautiful, the rooms are lovely and the breakfasts superb. I'd really rcommend 88 Lodge to anyone. There is also a pool, which we didn't use because the weather was cool, but which would be great in summer.
