Pros: Loved staying here! Helen and Willem were the perfect hosts - from understanding that we were held up in Friday night traffic, through to suggesting a new restaurant that had only been open for weeks. The spa was lovely to relax in on a cool night, and the bed was super comfy. There were also the little things like the coffee machine and marshmallows, their dog Bella visiting us to say hello, waking up to the chirping of birds and looking out to the great views. You should stay just for the breakfast they make for you!

Pros: I could go on about the comfy rooms, the great separation between hosts and guests, close proximity to Snell's Beach and Matakana, the incredibly wonderful breakfast, welcome drink, and facilities, but I'll let you discover that when you get there! The main attraction are the amazing hosts, Helen and Willem!! After leaving, it almost felt sad, as though you're leaving family. Their stories are intriguing, they are non invasive and are there when you need them. I hope to see them again soon and stay again. Let Petey know Raiden still has his stick!! hehehe

Cons: Nothing
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The room was beautifully decorated and comfortable for a short term stay. The views from the property are breathtaking. It is a very quiet neighbourhood. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly, but respectful of all their guests’ privacy. We were greatful that we were given a wonderfully quiet room as per our request. We appreciated the change of towels on day 2, it was unexpected, but a nice touch. We look forward to visiting again...
Cons: The fan in the bathroom that comes on with the main light in the bathroom, we found really loud and annoying. However we do realise it is necessary as there is no window. Possibly another soft light on a separate switch to the main switch for those visits where a fan is not necessary? A few multiplugs would have been helpful for phone and laptop chargers, hairdryer etc, as we had to use the kitchen plug points or unplug the bedside lamps, and no plug point in the bathroom? All minor things, which certainly did not detract from our stay.
10.0 Excellent

Cons: Bathroom light turned on a noisy fan also so that one had to have noisy fan going even if not using the shower and steaming up the room. If fan cannot be optional it needs to be replaced with a quieter model.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Kotare Lodge is in an excellent location for day trips close by - for example Kawau Is and Tawharanui Park. The accommodation was private and comfortable and had a very nice terraced area and a plunge pool outside the room. We were allocated a room with a lounge attached so had plenty of space.

John the Host is very helpful, apart from the rainy weather he saw our accommodation wasn't suitable for my 85 year old Mother and has made an arrangement where we can go back and enjoy the self contained cabin. As it turned out though Mum coped the best out of all of us, here's me and my youngest daughter getting up at 2am in the morning to walk to the toilet!
Cons: Only 1 toilet & from our cabin we had to walk to it, in the summer it would be better but I think they really need more user friendly facilities. Also the bunks are for children not big enough for adults, this really bothered me as I was underneath and in the end had to move my mattress to the floor. I was not happy climbing up and down the top bunk either!

5.0 Okay
Pros: Bed was very comfy. View lovely.
Cons: Room not very clean. Cobwebs on furniture, stains on couch, wine glasses had lipstick on them. Requested rooms together which we had confirmation that would not be a problem but this forgot to be done when rooms were allocated. In saying that was told there could be an option of waiting for a room to be cleaned so reception did try to rectify this. Outdoor furniture covered in cobwebs and bird droppings, would need to be scrubbed before you could use them and what was there did not appear to be something that had just happened over a few weeks.
