Aotearoa Lodge is different to a standard NZ motel. We think it is better! Darryl & Lynette Syme are resident hosts who pride themselves on doing their best to make guests feel at home. The homely atmosphere in the breakfast room, guest lounge and general ambience of the Lodge attest to this. Studio rooms in the Main Lodge have tea/coffee making facilities only but there is a small kitchen in the guest lounge if you choose to self cater. Our One &Two bedroom units are self catering. Our rooms are clean, refurbished well equipped & have comfortable beds, and are serviced daily. We have a guest laundry, library, bikes, BBQ hire & outdoor games. Set in a quiet garden location, 3 km from Whitianga town centre, 1 km to beach, we are geographically well placed to visit all the best Peninsula destinations or visit Cathedral Cove aboard our boat charter and receive a 10% discount when staying at Aotearoa Whitiangas Ultimate Breakaway : Check out our web suite www.aotearoatournz.
