Highlight of our NZ trip
Lynn and Kelvin have mastered the art of meticulous attention to detail, coupled with making their guests feel wonderfully relaxed and welcomed. The Lodge is set high amongst beautiful gardens and bush overlooking the Coromandel township and with expansive views out to the Islands. My wife and I stayed during our visit to the north of NZ for our 30th wedding anniversary and Lynn and Kelvin couldn’t have made us feel more special.
Our room was immaculate with high quality fittings and the enormous deck which surrounds the Lodge is a wonderful place for breakfast, drinks, and even dinner which we brought back to have on the deck one night to watch the beautiful sunset.
And if the quality of the accomodation and location isn’t enough, the warmth and hospitality of Lynn and Kelvin sets Atea Lodge apart. They are so friendly and engaging, attentive without being intrusive, and happy to organise dinner bookings and give tips on the many wonderful places to see in the Coromandel. And their breakfasts and coffees are superb!
We hope to get back to the Coromandel for a longer visit and Atea Lodge will be our No. 1 choice fo where we stay. And I agree with Bryan’s review that Atea deserves (at least) 6 stars!
