Trip Advisor 2014 Certificate of Excellence awarded to 88 Lodge.

We are just so proud and chuffed to be awarded a prestigious Certificate of Excellence for 2014 by Trip Advisor, the internationally recognised guru of all things good, and bad, about the hospitality trade.


It is a tribute to all of our wonderful guests who have taken the time and effort to say their piece about us for the entire world to see. Thank you to each and every one of you.


This is the 2nd year running that we have received this award.  When you enjoy your ‘job’ as much as we do the hard work required to meet exacting standards pales into insignificance when recognised in this way.


As the Bay of Islands climbs the popularity chart of ‘must do’ places in New Zealand more and more visitors see the wisdom of coming north.  Here they find, history, culture, wildlife, land and sea scapes to die for, sport, activities and experiences, lifestyle and fine dining all within an area of sparse population, open roads, friendly unhurried people, blue skies and the best all round weather in New Zealand.


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