I would HIGHLY recommend staying at the Waipoua Lodge. You will find the hosts to be an absolute delight and the cottages are lovely. A lot of little extras are included to make your stay exceptional. The Kauri forest is a must on your itinerary.

Waipoua Lodge is excellent in every respect. Accommodation, food and atmosphere. Weather was perfect for sitting out and the garden here is beautiful. Grace and the staff could not have done more to make us welcome.
