6/10 Good

Pre arrival staff were excellent in advising a walk back to entrance of Abel Tasman NP and arranging transport to and from Lodge. This high standard was not maintained after our arrival e.g. waiter forgot to order my wife’s main course. Also, on our return from a walk we found our choice of herbal tea was restricted to one type (which we didn’t like), one tea spoon, no complimentary biscuits in the room. Plus by 9pm having only arrived at lunchtime I’d exhausted the free wi- fi limit. At breakfast the next morning we even had to pay for a coffee. Given the cost of a room for a night all this smacked of stinginess. On checking out I was asked how my stay had been and I said OK. There was just acceptance of this comment by staff when I would have thought a polite enquiry was needed

10/10 Exceptional

Such a beautiful place to stay and highly recommended. We parked at Kaiteriteri and took an Abel Tasman Sea Shuttle out to Awaroa Bay which in itself was amazing as it’s picturesque and you get a bit of commentary and sight seeing along the way. The porter is there with their quad bike to take your bags up to the lodge and they’re waiting for you in your room once you’ve checked in. The room is large with seperate sleeping and lounge area and a great bathroom. A deck looks out onto wetlands and bush and it’s so quiet and peaceful. Staff are friendly and the food at restaurant delicious.

8/10 Very good

We had a group of 2 families, 4 adults and teens 14/15/16/17/18. Ideally we would have liked 2 x family rooms, but online booking back in June showed none available, and would only let us put a maximum of 2 ppl in each room, so we ended up with 5 rooms (quite a bit more pricey). Then when we were there we saw unoccupied family rooms and some of the rooms we were allocated had a Queen a single, so would have accommodated 3 people... bit disappointing that the online booking did not match the actual capacity and availability. Possibly they had some later cancellations due to COVID restrictions. Enquired on arrival if we could shuffle things a bit, but understandably it was too late by then as rooms had already been made up and they obviously couldn't sell the 'surplus' rooms this would have created. They did say that some rooms were currently undergoing renovation and they were waiting on furniture to arrive. Restaurant food and service was great - rooms were great. Toilets off the restaurant were a bit tired.
