Paku Lodge
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Tairua
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 February 2016

We stayed in a one bedroom unit with a large sundeck and a beautiful view of the harbour. The unit was clean and comfortable with an excellent bed and pillows. The unit was well equipped with basic cooking facilities and a dishwasher. There was a large a barbecue to share with the unit next door. On the deck we had a barbecue table plus a small table and 2 deck chairs.
We were going to eat out but the view was so beautiful that we ate on our deck every night of the three nights we were there.
The location is excellent- across the road from the harbour and the opportunity to swim or kayak in one of the motel's kayaks. it is a close walk to the marina or the ocean beach. There are a couple of cafes a gentle stroll away. The motel has bikes if you want to go further and the hosts have plenty of local knowledge to share about the best places or activities. We enjoyed a walk up Paku Mountain for an amazing view. (If you want a good work out, walk the whole way; if not, drive up to the car park and take the shorter version. It requires a bit of a scramble to get up the last few metres but the view is worth it). Tairua is a wonderful location for visiting many of the beautiful beaches and attractions on the Coromandel Peninsula.

Room Tip: All rooms have a balcony and a view but the one bedroom units have a larger deck and face the water.

Awesome location, across the road from the water. Great views of the marina and the boats coming and going. Amazing sunset view from room. Room was a great size with all amenities. Bathroom was a bit small for 2 people at once but otherwise no problem. Free bike and paddle board use.

Stayed: December 2015

Clean and neat, a great view, watching the Tui in the trees and the seabirds wading. Just a short hop of the state highway and the center of town, 20 minutes by foot. Quiet and a great getaway. Staff is friendly and helpful; excellent for a relaxing holiday.

We had been on the road all day and really just stumbled upon this place. It was a very lucky find indeed. The manager gave us a discounted rate and the best room in the place. It was clean, well furnished and gave us a well needed good nights rest. It has a million dollar view that is not to be missed.

My wife and I had a one night stay 5th April in a studio apartment; this was the only accommodation during our travels where we were asked for a voucher when we provided the booking reference from our travel pack. The studio was in a great position with outstanding views from the balcony; some of the furnishings could do with updating.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to have outstanding views. This hotel could not be in a better position.
