Travel presents us with wonderful surprises. Ours was Greg. Having travelled the highways in beating rain, we arrived at Waihi lodge delighted to find Greg had made us a booking at a lovely local restaurant to recover and dry out. The next morning Masterchef Greg, in his warm, welcoming way, took to his kitchen to turn local produce into our...

We stayed at Waihi Beach Lodge for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon travels around New Zealand. Hosts Greg and Ali made it really special for us, and we spent 2 blissful days on the beach (2 minutes walk away) and going for walks locally. The location is peaceful and our room was beautifully decorated. A short drive or...

Aside from the well located and comfortable Lodge our hosts were the most welcoming and helpful. Yummy cooked breakfasts upstairs provided easy chat with other guests. Rooms were kept spotless in spite of beach sand and salt. The beach is directly across the street in a quiet neighborhood. If in the region would definitely return.

The Beach Lodge epitomises for me the best in New Zealand hospitality. Friendly, laid-back hosts, full of information about the local area, excellent breakfasts to start your day. They went the little bit extra in identifying the cap I left behind and sending it on. The rooms themselves are good quality without being over-the-top in price or fussiness. Thoroughly recommended...
