International accommodation award puts 88 Lodge amongst the best in New Zealand

It seems as if our time in the sun has arrived. We are delighted to know that 88 Lodge is an accommodation recognised amongst the best in New Zealand.


An Australian-based hotel meta-search company, started an extensive survey covering different types of accommodation.  Gathering data from millions of guest reviews, translating them to an official Recognition of Excellence.

This is not a ranking list but a group of outstanding accommodations chosen based on a strict set of criteria. To be considered properties need to meet the following:


.  At the time of judging a winner is rated 8.5/10 or over with a minimum of 50 customer reviews


.  No detection of customer service problems, nor recurring or unresolved issues.


Great consideration was also taken of the way we answered the communications team demonstrating a commitment to quick quality service.

88 Lodge produced a high satisfaction rating amongst guests and travel industry experts receiving 234 reviews for an impressive 9.9 out of 10 rating.

“We are thrilled to be working with the best hotels in New Zealand and 88 Lodge is certainly amongst them’ said Alberto Castellucchio, market manager of HotelsCombined New Zealand, “What is different about the Recognition of Excellence is the way the information is gathered and analysed: it all depends on the guest experience with a particular accommodation”


So, another feather in our cap and plaque on the wall.

It's not many who receive ‘HALL OF FAME’ status. This makes us a B&B not to be missed
