We two couples spent the weekend in this charming b&b. Very unique and comfortable, clean accommodation with lovely hosts, who served a lovely evening meal. Lots to look at in the house. Highly recommend a visit.

Lovely accommodation, absolutely fascinating with so many things to see in every room. John and Dorothy are wonderful hosts. Our room was delightful, had a very comfortable 4 poster bed with a separate large bathroom with shower and bath. We also had a balcony with a water view. Location is excellent, right in the centre of Rawene, close to the ferry and other interesting historic buildings. The evening meal was superb, the very best lamb we have eaten, cooked to perfection and the European breakfast was also enjoyable.

Rawene and Opononi are like Arrowtown of the North Island. Once upon a time ten of thousands habitants, now only couple of hundreds in each. Postmasters Lodgings is a lovely place to spend couple of nights to experience beautiful parts of the Kauri Cost.

Such a friendly reception from John and Dorothy, with welcome drinks this wonderful older building but lovely Accomodation and a very picturesque patio for evening drinks and breakfast. The view slightly obscured by a vigorous garden but such peace. Breakfast was excellent fresh coffee and continental style. Thank you John and Dorothy

I love staying here its like going home, from the genuine people running the place to the great food and calm naturalness to the rooms it just relaxes me - love just walking around the house, reading the books on the book shelves and looking at all the elegant wood carvings. it sits within the heart of Rawene and is so east to find. Need to visit it in the summer now.
