Tipi and Bobs Waterfront Lodge
Reviewed 7 March 2010

The hotel is in a good location and the front rooms will have good views, but we had the unfortunate experience of staying in one of the back rooms. For $195 a night we had a view of the clothes line, the smells of the kitchen and the noise of the generator to lull us to sleep. The room was also poorly equiped and should have been priced at a budget level.
Everything else about Great Barrier Island was great but this room was close to the bottom of the barrel.
