It is quite a few years since we stayed at Paku Lodge but we are hoping to go back in April 2017. Our memories are very good ones so we are hoping we will make a few new ones. Wonderful place to make it a base for touring the area. It is a short drive out of town, but that...

This motel was in amazing position, close to the marina and opposite the town of Tairua with amazing views. Motel had all the basics - fridge/iron/pots and pans etc- that you would need but the nearest eatery was round the bay in Tairua for evening meal and breakfast etc. Pleasant and helpful owner. Would recommend.

I have stayed in many places in nz, but the service we received here was one of the worst. Whilst the motel is well positioned and room is good, the proprietors could do with a lesson in service. We asked for some additional towels, upon which the lady at reception asked why we need more towels given we checked in...

Lovely town, lovely hotel- motel doesn't do it justice. Modern, understated room, well equipped kitchen. Everything was like new and the view was stunning, beach in front of hotel and huge bay that changed completely when tide went out. Gorgeous

Motel accommodation isn't always what you hope for but Paku Lodge was simply a delight in every respect. Tairua is a quiet friendly and picturesque location, time seems to slow down in the Coromandel. Right from the moment we were greeted by our host we knew we were in for a treat. Check in was easy and the unit had...

Checked into this Resort late afternoon the evening of the "super moon". It is located on the water with only a small access road separating it from the beach and walkways. Truly gorgeous setting. We were in Suite 1 and it had incredible large windows and beautiful views. A great vantage Point for a sunset. Only a minutes drive from...

This motel is one of the best we have stayed in so far and the price reflects a far superior room rate, we had the front room upstairs and the view out the windows was fantastic, it is just a short drive to town for breakfast but the quiet road in front of the motel is just that, this is...

It's a privat and beautiful location. Not far from town and easy to get around . Host is very friendly and the place is clean, nicely furnished and has a kitchen. A bit in the pricey side but hey we are here to enjoy ourselves .

Awesome location, lovely view and so quiet too. Great for a relax no matter the weather. Older kids were able to play down on safe beach while mum & dad watched from balcony. Beautiful place for some nice walks and not far to other wonderful beach spots.

Fitted our needs perfectly. We had viewed two other motels and Paku Lodge surpassed these in every respect. Thoughtfully equipped. Well appointed. Great view. Lovely hosts. Very economically priced. We stayed 4 nights.
