After much searching on the internet and reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to spend a night at Wairua Lodge in January. As other reviews have said, the setting in the valley is amazing - beautiful, not far from the town/beaches, and a good base to explore the Coromandel. The owners are also really helpful and have thought of so many special touches such as the bean bags, outdoor bath, dvd selection etc. However, the big disappointment was the standard of the room. While clean, it was quite basic. There were also spiders in the bathroom - not something we expected from accommodation getting 5* reviews. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would probably go back, but if you're expecting 5* standard (as is implied by many of the reviews), then you will be disappointed.
