“Boaties Heaven”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We stayed at this ground from the 6th until the 9th of Jan 2014. We were located on site 1 which was a powered site. Nil tent sites were available. Our impression is that if you have a boat - you can't go wrong here at all. The services offered to assist you with launching and retrieval are quite simply absolutely fantastic. Everything is provided. So if you have a boat this is your heaven.
Unfortunately we don't have a boat (if anyone wants to give us one that would be great haha) and we just tented for the 3 days. Where we stayed on site 1 as tenters, made us feel that we were sort of in the way. This is definately no reflection on the boaties as we met some bloody funny guy's and ladies down there. The tent area which was fully booked we didn't get to see as we were either out surfcasting for the day and a little intoxicated at night and walking was a mission hehe.
The Host Richard - absolutely accomodating in everyway. Friendly smile and always prepared to stop and ask how things are going. You really made a great impression on us Richard.
The Facilities - no issue here either, very clean and well looked after.
A heated swimming pool would be fantastic, but that's because i hate the cold.

All round excellent location, service, facilities, operators !!
Having stayed many times over the past decade, I am pleased to be heading back this year for the first time in three years.
I have stayed at Anglers Lodge, (camped, motel, cabin) and have been there with family, business, fishing club and even held my 40th there.
Love the place :-)

This was our second year staying at Anglers lodge. As the first year we were very impressed with our hosts, accomadation, and presentation of the camp. The service of putting our boat into and out of the water is fantastic. Me and the team cannot recomend Anglers Lodge highly enough for a great stay with outstanding hosts.

You will find this is clean and convenient, but far from friendly or helpful. Do not believe this is friendly or helpful, they lost my shackle and I had to buy one from them too small for the boat, then asked about fuel , again not helpful. will definitely not stay there again but down the road at the camp ground/lodge

Room Tip: 150 for a room , go elsewhere

We are very sorry you were disappointed with your stay and with our friendliness. We certainly have not had an issue with this in the passed and will try to do better in the future. It needs to be noted that although we store petrol on site for our fishing charter operation, as mentioned to you, we are not licensed to sell petrol. We did advise where the nearest petrol station was.

Brilliantly situated lodge with awesome drive up the coast to get there. Enclosed BBQ area, swimming pool, fish filleting station and fish smoker, boat ramp over the road, clean buildings, friendly and helpful owners. One of the best weekends of my life. Thanks Anglers' Lodge.

We stayed at the lodge couple of weekends ago and were very happy at the end of our stay. It was husband's fishing club annual trip which wives were invited to. To be honest I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. Rooms were very lovely and VERY clean. Covered dining/bbq area in the middle of the lodge was perfect for big group to have dinner all together even if it was raining. There was everything fisherman could ask for; boat to take you out, fish cleaning station even a smoker. The beach is just over the road and its only 15 min drive from Coromandel Town which was perfect for the wives. We will definitely be back.

Anglers Lodge is a brillant place to stay, motel cabins and camp sites offered. Brillant for those keen on fishing as they also do fishing boat charters. Place is super clean, super friendly and has the best ever undercover bbq gezzebo. Swimming pool was brillant. Set in bush setting with Amodeo Bay, just 10 minutes north of Coromandel town. This place is a real credit to the owners - they know the area inside-out and are just so obliging, nothing is a problem for them to sort. You'd be mad not to spend time at Anglers Lodge.
