Beautiful surroundings and real feel for the Waikato country life. Very comfortable accommodation with fantastic breakfast selections. Easy driving to many different attractions the area has to offer. All seven of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay at Oak Lane again.

The lodge is an impeccably maintained old farmhouse from the early 20th century, on manicured grounds with orchards and gardens, surrounding by paddocks. Alan and Cath are perfect hosts, helpful, well-informed and extremely kind. The farm breakfast was spectacular (the best we had in New Zealand), and the wifi worked without a hiccup. The room had a huge and hugely...

It is with pleasure that we are able to share this wonderfully secluded piece of New Zealand rural paradise with nice people like yourselves. A short stay, yes, makes us especially glad we were able to help make your visit to New Zealand memorable in some small way. All the best, A&C.

While photographing the "Balloons over Waikato" event we had battled to secure accommodation in Hamilton. How fortuitous it was, therefore, to find Oak Lane Lodge!! Our welcome was as warm as the delightfully appointed room, while the tranquility of the Lodge and its environs proved to be a most agreeable contrast to the festival. From the luxuriously crisp and comfy...
