My Partner & I checked in here for a relaxing time away. From the moment we arrived our hosts Harry & Sally were excellent. Our room was clean, great bed ( one of the best I have slept in) comfy pillows and a decent high-pressure shower. It was nice to switch off from the outside world. We took a walk around the property with a track leading to an amazing stream. It was nice to reconnect with nature.
I revisited Patuha Lodge in January, this time taking my two daughters with me. We were just there overnight, but we were made so welcome by the lovely owners, made full use of the laundry facilities and the big spa bath, the very good wifi connection - and breakfast was splendid!
Great accommodation! Beautiful location right in the bush. Peaceful, clean and comfortable. Lovely host! We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommended it !
I recommend everything about Patuha. I am almost afraid to because something this perfect you want to keep a secret from the marauding hordes but...PLB’nB for us was the ideal retreat for “recharge and go.” The Lodge is a beautiful 2km drive from the main road of Upper Pitone and deep in a bush setting but just close enough to access all the sites of the Taranaki Region. The property is lush due to its rainforest location and we awoke every morning to the music of bell birds and tuis-not to mention the presence of moreporks, fantails, and pukekos. Sally goes beyond what one would expect of a host and we hope to meet again.... in any part of the world. Leave the world behind for a few days... do yourself a favour and escape to the Patuha Lodge for a couple of days.
We all thoroughly enjoyed your wonderful hospitality at Patuha Lodge, its an awesome oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city! and yes we certainly did see the mountain on our return trip home.
