Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 February 2014

A little way out of the Town centre, but the situation, rooms, service, breakfasts all superb. Dinner in if you choose to have it is as good as it gets. The proprietors are wonderfully friendly, welcoming and provide a great experience in this beautiful part of the North Island. Don't miss it!

Room Tip: They are all terrific!

Whangamata is beautiful, and the Brenton Lodge is just a perfect place to stay. We were made to feel so welcome. Extremely friendly hosts, beautiful accommodation, and stunning surroundings. Highly recommended

This is an amazing place to stay. Fabulous setting, incredible views and great people who run it. Sallie and Dave were lovely people. This was the beginning of our NZ trip and we have yet to experience better. The breakfast on the terrace was brilliant. Only four lodges so book early! Thanks for a great time, we would definitely go back!

Room Tip: There are only four lodges, all great.

Really lovely place, set on a ridge set back from the town, with a stunning view over the Pacific and the roar of the surf. Beautiful accommodation, a warm welcome from the kind and friendly hosts, and best breakfast I've had in ages. I absolutely loved this place, among the very best of my tour of NZ. A great base from which to explore the Coromandel.

Sallie & David have a lovely place in Whangamata on the Coromandel Peninsula, recommended to us by Trailfinders, who helped plan the holiday. Definitely the best breakfast of anywhere we stayed, although it wasn't yet holiday season, so it was just the three of us staying, so a breakfast cooked to order rather than the buffet breakfasts we had to put up with in other places.
Unfortunately, as it wasn't holiday season, a number of places in town were closed, so when we went in for an evening meal, the number of choices were limited, but this wasn't something under the control of the owners.
It is an expensive place, nice of an occasional night or two, but not somewhere you could stay for too long unless you have a lot of money. But you get what you pay for, and sometimes you need to pay for exceptional quality and service.

Couldn't have received a warmer welcome when we arrived here. Our room was immaculate, beautifully decorated with everything you could possibly need as well as lovely, thoughtful touches such as cheese, crackers and chocolates for our arrival. Situated slightly uphill, there were gorgeous views of the bay from our room.There was a large choice for breakfast and was probably the best I had whilst in NZ. Would love to return for a longer stay next time.
