The manager is very helpful and friendly, nothing is too much bother to make your stay a pleasant one. We stayed for two nights and could not fault the accommodation except that it is not within walking distance of anything (town is a 5 minute drive). You definitely can't put away the car keys while you are here as there is not even a corner shop nearby.

Room Tip: All are good rooms

This is a very nice place, close to town with heaps of birdsongs around and wonderful to relax. Breakfast selection good. Very friendly and helpful hosts. All very tidy and clean. Rooms with nice decks to enjoy sunshine. Thanks!

Not impressed with the location at all. Far to far out of town.
Literally in the middle of nowhere. No restaurant to dine in on the premises.
And the lady who was on reception really didn't appear very interested at all.
It had a communal kitchen area if you want to cook for yourselves.

Room Tip: Wasn't impressed at all so I wouldn't recommend this hotel

Drove from Auckland along the scenic Coast rd 25 through Coromanel to Whiianga. A wonderful drive and a must do drive. We Stayed here for 2 nights to visit Hot Water Beach Cathedral Cove and Captain Cook Bay.
For around $120 AUD with Breakfast is very good on a budget and would stay again, Nothing special about the place. It was clean and bed comfortable could be noisy if the place was fully booked. On the fringe of town a car is needed to go to the shops.

Stayed: October 2015

We came from the US, stayed 3 days at the Aotearoa Lodge in Whitianga NZ and had a personalized tour of the coromandel by Darryl who grew up here and has been guiding for 9 years. Darryl and Lynette were perfect hosts, providing Auckland hotel pickup, lovely breakfasts in the attractive lodge and insider knowledge of the coromandel. This was the highlight of our NZ trip and I highly recommend this tour.
