Pros: One of the most enjoyable stays I've had in New Zealand. The room is very nice. The Jacuzzi is very good for the end of a day for relaxation. The breakfast is one of the best I've ever had. The hosts are extremely friendly and we really feel at home. The reception was spectacular and we were given tips on what we could do and the other morning always worrying about what we had done. It was at Chale Romantica that I asked for my fiancée Baswati's hand and where the host provided us with the environment for it. To remember, remember and come back for sure :)

Morepork Riverside Lodge - Paihia - Bedroom

9,8 Excellent (85 reviews)
R2 167+
Overview Reviews
Located in Paihia, Morepork Riverside Lodge is on a river, a 4-minute drive from Haruru Falls and 7 minutes from Paihia Wharf. Featured amenities include a computer station, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. For a surcharge, guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle (available on request) and a ferry terminal shuttle.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Our hosts knowledge of the area, their ability to assist you with your itinerary, provide recommendations for restaurant dining in Paihia, which did not disappoint. All around friendly nature of our hosts wanting to ensure we had a great time in the area, and to make the most of our time here. Which we did and throughly enjoyed ourselves. Best of all was learning about the Maori culture.
Cons: There was noting we didn’t like, perhaps the rain at the time, but our hosts could not control that. The only issue is that as you drive in and out of the Lodge, you do need to be careful of the other traffic, as you are on a bend, so have very little visual of other cars approaching. As you gathered you do need a car to access the lodge, as it a little way outside the township of Paihia.

Cons: One little heater in main lounge area, made for a cold evening. Especially when host was expecting me in the evening, the heater could have been on and taken the chill off. My pet hate with any accommodation....small UHT milk pottles. No excuse! Stingy and yuk! Just a small carton or bottle of fresh milk isnt a hard ask.
