“Fantastic location but expensive”
Reviewed 6 July 2010

Could not fault the location and the facilities are good as well.

Without driving, there are no good restaurants local. There are two but they are rather so, so.

The views from the rooms are fantastic.

Only reason it's marked down is the price. Obviously we agreed to pay the price without knowing what to expect. If you can get a deal for staying here you would probably have a more satisfying result.

Yes I would stay here again.

Reviewed 8 March 2009

i had never been to tairua before, and so wasn't prepared for how beautiful paku lodge's location is. it is breath taking at sunset.

however, for the price (over $180 per night) i had expected more. it is unserviced (we stayed three days and the rubbish wasn't even emptied over this time) and we had to ask for more towels. oh and also the sofa bed was uncomfortable and a few of the slats were broken.

that said, the people who ran the place were very nice. and the beauty of the location cannot be overemphasised.
