Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Located just outside Kerikeri, this is a beautiful property with a relaxing vibe, nestled amongst a lovely garden setting (including a pool!) From the moment we arrived, Tania and Troy made us feel very welcome and we were well looked after during our stay. The breakfast is amazing too! Perfectly located for Northland attractions, e.g. Paihia, Waitangi, Russell, Cape Reinga. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Northland.

88 Lodge. End of an Era
My wife and I had a very pleasant stay at 88 Lodge. The hosts Geoff and Chris were lovely and provided us with hand written guides of what to see and do from their own personal experience when we were travelling around. Geoff and Chris were very accommodating and took pride in the level of service they provided which was rightly deserved. The setting was visually appealing and very relaxing. Sadly, we were their very last guests as the business has been on-sold after 16 years running 88 Lodge. Geoff and Chris had built a remarkable reputation judging from the awards they have received over the years and it can only be hoped that the new owners will aspire to the same level of service and accommodation. We wish Geoff and Chris all the best for whatever the future brings for them.
