10.0 Excellent
Pros: Fabulous location on a lake with beautiful birds on the doorstep, really lovely comfortable and spacious accommodation, friendly and helpful hosts, very knowledgeable about the area. Gorgeous sunsets, harbour and beach to enjoy and explore. We walked around to Rings Beach which was also lovely. The bridge at Kuaotunu was closed due to storm damage which unfortunately meant a long drive to access the Hot Water beach and the Cathedral cove area. We opted to take the 'short cut' road which was pretty grim, mainly rough gravel with some very precarious parts, the locals do drive pretty fast and furious!! Apart from that, fantastic area, we loved it.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wally & Maire are fantastic hosts. No, they're not hosts, they're more like family. Wonderful experience! They really couldn't have done enough for us. My partner and I had a fabulous time and are looking forward to another trip to the Coromandel. Wally loves to talk, so make sure you ask him about what to do in the area and whose who. There's a lot of playful banter between Wally & Maire. So lovely to see a couple so in tune with each other. We got to use the kayak which was a lot of fun. I love chickens so I got a cuddle from one happy hen. Not to forget friendly, affectionate Fern (Labrador)! There is delicious homemade bread, homegrown honey, eggs, rhubarb and more at breakfast. Yum!Yum! Lisa & Hugh
Cons: That we couldn't stay longer :-) That we didn't have time to walk over the hill the see the sunrise... the bed was too comfortable. That we didn't have at least one dinner with Wally & Maire.

They were helpful from point of booking, made a delicious breakfast every morning and were generous with advice and the use of their kit and equipment (barbecue, water sports etc). They were brilliant with our spirited two boys (age 9 and 11). We would love to go back to Leighton Lodge, a lovely B and B in the beautiful Opito Bay.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The views from our room and the breakfast are were spectacular! The beach is just down the road from this property, an easy walk or a two second drive. It offers great swimming or fishing. The host went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of, even in the periods of time when we were to be more self-sufficient. He offered us the use of his kayak and barbecue when we wanted to bbq our own meal. He taught us how to shuck the scallops we caught and cook them. He was great company! His wife was very friendly as well and I hear she usually makes the best meals ever, however she was recovering from some recent medical treatments so we did not see her as often on this trip.
Cons: The only thing wrong was that we didn’t stay longer!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: What a nice place and such lovely hosts! We had two nights at Leighton Lodge and we enjoyed our stay very much! Maire and Wally are very friendly hosts! We also loved our walks with Fern the super cute Labrador! We would come back anytime!

Cons: Though it is refurbished, and those parts (such as bedroom) are clean, you can tell that parts of the property are still old and dirty, like under the sink next to where spare towels are kept. The toilet bowl is old and chipped at the side, the flush button is so dirty and yellow that you don’t feel like touching it. The breakfast, valued at $12, is not worth it at all. It’s a cold meal given to you the afternoon before and consists of cereal, plain bread (with spreads provided), fruit juice of your choice, yoghurt, and “fruit”, which is basically canned peaches.

Pros: Absolutely fabulous, it was the last 3 days stay in NZ visiting our daughter and partner and we wanted these days to be special. The accomodation did not disappoint , fab spec , fab views over waterways, could paddle board on the waterway, great facilities in the apartment well fitted out kitchen , washer, drier etc . Tennis courts free to use and good condition , pool and jacussi. Staff fantastic. It is a little out of the town but we had a car and that didn’t bother us, we were sad to leave. Would def recommend and would love to return
Cons: If I had to be very picky the tennis courts are the wrong way round so when you play morning and evening , it’s hard to see because of th e sun . The internet was a little inconsistent , partic in evenings But I’m just being very picky here!

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The setting and views were exceptional. There was plenty of space to move around and dump all of our bags. The bed was comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. I loved waking up to the sound of the waves.
Cons: There was no tray! The eating areas were both quite a way from the kitchen but there was no means of transporting our food or crockery from one to the other. As it was self catering we had to go and buy our breakfast. The other places that we have stayed at were much cheaper AND included breakfast. I felt that we were paying just for the location.

Pros: The location was amazing! I wish we were staying longer!
