I must say that our impression of the Aotearoa Lodge was somewhat influenced by the pouring rain and driving, cold wind the evening of our stay. The tranquil setting was lost on us and our time outside was limited to running to the car and later back to the hotel entrance and the location became just inconvenient with a bit of a drive to the area restaurants. The room itself was fairly large and clean but otherwise basic except for the bed which was great. It was very comfortable with fine sheeting; we had a great nights sleep. The bathroom was similarly large and clean but my morning shower was interrupted by an on and off drop in water pressure. We tried to do some laundry in the evening but the dryer after two runs was not up to the job. We ended up taking the wet clothes into the town to finish them at a Laundromat. Daryl was friendly and very helpful in finding us a very nice restaurant and making a reservation for us for dinner and his helper, Zoe, was also very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was very good. It is too bad we didn't have better weather to enjoy our visit to Whitianga.
