Excellent accommodation, with each of the junior suites a separate building, with a view of the river flowing down towards the falls. Staff very friendly, helpful and efficient. Food top quality. We had breakfast, lunch, pre dinner canapes and a 5 course degustation dinner included in our tariff but only had lunch once because we weren’t hungry. The room had fruit, nuts and chocolate, all of which were included. Pre dinner drinks were included, with an excellent selection of high quality wines. Alcohol with meals was an extra cost. Grounds superb and really peaceful setting. A ten minute walk to Huka Falls. You need a car to tour around. Highly recommended place.
Luxurious Experience but Over Engineered Food
Did not disappoint. Just a beautiful setting, lodgings and staff. We had 3 nights and had such a lovely time and were looked after so well. Just a small problem with the menu. We found a lot of the flavours not harmonious - in a bad way. I guess you could say it was uncomfortable food. In a lodge next to a trout stream within a few clicks of deer shooting country maybe more rustic would be better. Perhaps since Kiwis are not the target market. There are far better 5 star five dining menus in Auckland for a fraction of the cost. And what is it with the minimalist ‘canapés? Too much Fat texture and Unami I think. They look beautiful next to your cocktail but best left on the plate. Oh and the lunch time fondant was divine .... every day :)
One night is not enough
This is hands down, one of the most amazing places, we've ever stayed at. The surroundings, the people, food are all first class. As soon as you arrive you are warmly greeted with champagne & shown around. Although a high class lodge, it has a very relaxed feel & you can wear smart casual clothing & feel comfortable We can't wait to return, this time for the weekend!
Lives up to it’s reputation
We had a wonderful two nights at Huka Lodge recently. It is beautifully located, nestling beside the Waikato just above the impressive Huka Falls. The room was stunning, comfortable and stylish. The food world class.
Must Do List
Stayed 2 nights here over Labour weekend. Has been on our list for a long time, and the opportunity arose when the Border closure meant access for Kiwi's was a little easier. A sensational 2 days fro the moment we arrived. Have never experienced service like it. The Lodge was full for the weekend...full of a wide range of NZérs enjoying their own backyard, and it was great to chat in the Lounge around the fire after what were 2 nights of amazing culinary excellence. Cottages are awesome, right on the river, and we've never heard the "Birdsong"like it at sunrise each morning. There were so many extra touches, each one shows why they are consistently in the Top 10 Lodges in the World. Wow...we need to get back there
