We had a wonderful stay at "Buffalo Lodge". The most tranquil place you're ever likely to stay!
Evelyn is an exceptional hostess, and left us with extremely fond memories of both herself as well as her beautiful corner of the Coromandel Peninsular.
Our en suite room was not over fussy but comfortable and we had the best sleep we had on the peninsular. The bath is lovely - hovering over bush cover with windows surrounding it - allowing a lovely view. If you want high tech and a big tv then this is not the place for you. However, no matter what, you should experience the peace and pure tranquility of Buffalo Lodge.
We had pre arranged to have dinner which Evelyn, which was cooked with quiet passion and warmth.
The meal was truly delicious and the best we had during our stay on the peninsular. We started off with Evelyn's home made Chinese dumplings and dipping sauce. Oh my goodness they are amazing - a main course of these would make me very happy. However, the main course was salmon en cruet with simple but wonderfully tasty veggies and salad. A true delight of course, I ate every morsel! Dessert was home made ice cream with drunken prunes, the title does not do justice to the perfect end to a lovely meal. I have to add that we ate this wonderful meal from 7 to 10.30, not something we would not normally due. However, in the relaxed atmosphere of Buffalo Lodge this was just perfect. We suggest you give Evelyn a minimum of 24 hours notice to book dinner but so worth it. It is also BYO which is easily sorted in Coromandel Town and kept chilled in Evelyn's fridge. I would recommend an extra bottle to have prior to dinner on the lovely deck watching and listening to the birds. You might be lucky and see a Morepork or two as we did up close.
Staying at Buffalo Lodge was a highlight for us on the Coromandel Peninsular. Evelyn is not only a talented artist and amazing cook,but a delightful and warm hostess. Enjoy!
