After a very short trip from Auckland we arrived at Sandpiper Lodge and were met and settled in to our clean and comfortable accommodation by our warm and friendly hosts Carolyn and Tom. That evening we enjoyed a first class meal with bubbles beforehand and a complimentary bottle of very good local wine with our meal. We enjoyed the company...

We spent 2 very relaxing nights at the Sandpiper Lodge.The setting is beautiful and lots to see and do in the local area. The hosts were great as was the food. We look forward to another weekend there soon.

Only one channel was working on the television and you can see that the upkeep of the Lodge is starting to slip. The hosts advised that the...

Like many others we went on a 50% off deal. Even at the discounted price it was not value for money. Very low spec rooms. Basic, no frills, cramped. Cobwebs all over the room and bathroom. Nice people running the place but a luxury lodge -no way. Go for the solitude but expect basic. You could get much better for...

We were supposed to stay two nights on a special 50% deal. Even considering the special deal, this lodge is not worth the cost. We found the room very small, no TV, no fridge. The ensuite was small and had not been cleaned properly. The sheets were marked. our sleep was disturbed by the snooring and movement in the room...
