We stayed for 3 nights in a ground floor studio which was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Lication is excellent, close to all amenities yet still peaceful and relaxing. John and Rongo are excellent hosts

The Hananui Lodge and apartments are simply fabulous. Immaculately clean with everything you could possibly need for a fabulous escape with the family or on your own. But most importantly John & Rongo are wonderful hosts - kiwi hospitality at its absolute best.

My wife and I stayed for three days in a “deluxe studio apartment”. The apartment was quite comfortable, clean and well-situated. The kitchenette had enough utensils, etc, that it was easy to prepare our own breakfasts and lunches (to be carried with us); in fact, one could easily prepare dinner as well, since the supermarket is <1 minute walk away....

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of 6 weeks of travelling around New Zealand and were looking for somewhere to relax for a while before the journey home - Hananui Lodge was a great choice for this. Situated on the waterfront, within sight of the jetty, meant that there was no real need to use the car...

Our experience with Hananui Lodge and the hosts, John and Rongo, was first class from start to finish. The hosts were really attentive, helpful and as locals, really know their stuff. The 2 bedroom apartment was spacious (with 2 bathrooms which was an unexpected bonus), modern and immaculately presented. Located one street back from the beachfront and easily accessible for...
