The relaxed atmosphere is evident immediately upon arrival. The units extremely fresh and clean and not lacking a single commodity. The communal Kitchen / Dining area is EXCELLENT....couldn't want for a single piece of crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils or even nice wine glasses...we certainly made good use of those during our all too brief stay! LOVED our introduction to the... More

We had a lovely time staying here. The room with ensuite was clean and spacious and so was the shared kitchen which is in a separate building. It was very quiet so that we had a good night's sleep. We loved the view from the bed which made it hard to get up in the morning. I would definitely recommend... More

Want to experience the Hokianga? This is a good base, over looking the harbour and easy walk to village central with its pub (good meals), art shop, etc. About 4kms from car ferry to Rawene. Stehanie very welcoming, rooms tidy and warm, large fully equiped kitchen and dining in adjacent building. Plenty of character. Particularly good for disabled access. Suitable... More

We stayed here for several nights over New Year. The rooms are fairly basic, but very clean and the bed comfortable. It felt a lot more like a slightly more upmarket hostel with ensuite than hotel. The view across the harbour is really quite lovely and you can sit on the deck to enjoy the view. The Night Sky Lodge... More

The cabins are a bit old and small, but comfortable. The shared kitchen is in a big building across the yard. It is well equipped and we cooked two evening meals there. Stephanie, the owner, is very helpful and friendly, and gave us lots of advice on things to do in the area.

Stayed overnight with the kids. Most hospitable, helpful, friendly reception and welcome. Loved the beds and shower- and the stars were just spectacular!! A really cute, quaint motel with nicely appointed rooms, lots of parking and really old fashioned hospitality. Super friendly++++ My city kids were wowed by the amazing stars- zero light pollution meant a spectacular sight- definitely return.

I intended to drive straight through Kohukohu but missed the last ferry across the Hokianga so had to stay overnight. I'm so glad I did! Kohukohu itself is well worth a stop and is a photographer's paradise. The view from Night Sky Lodge is gorgeous. The Lodge is very clean, spacious, and comfortable. Rooms open up with double doors onto... More

This lodge is pretty new so everything still looks very new. Some of the rooms overlook the water which is nice. The rooms are fairly spacious. The beds are comfortable with good quality linen. There is no carpet in the bedrooms (maybe lino?) which gives a cold finish to the place. The owner Stephanie is welcoming and helpful. There is... More
