The rooms were very good and the park is beautiful but we were a captive audience and every advantage was taken ..we were charged for Internet and breakfast which I believe should have been included in the price if the lodge..the breakfast was average with an average cold buffet and some cooked choices that were ok but not great. the dinners were the same 4 choices for the three nights we were there and were expensive., and just ok, except for the Peking duck appetiser which was very good. .there was a separate $15 charge for bread. The young people on the staff were lovely and hard working but were not trained and some barely spoke English. The lodge seemed to be understaffed.We were not offered any guided options and explored the trails on our own. The beach is gorgeous and of course the coastal walk is beautiful. I think there is much Peppers could do to improve this property and would love to see them do that. We had heard great things about the Awaroa Lodge and were sadly disappointed.
