We went to Taurikura Lodge for a private dinner to celebrate a family birthday and Toni and Wayne proved to be great hosts. The premises, hosts, food and service were all amazing. We'll definitely be back.

We had to extend our original 2 day stay at Taurikua to 4 days as our accomodation in Christchurch was badly damaged by the recent earthquake, and what a good decision it was. We had a wonderful time with Toni, Wayne and their delightful family. The welcome we got was warm, the food tremendous and the rooms extremely comfortable. If...

Wayne and Toni just couldnt do enough for us during our stay - making us feel so very welcome amidst their lovely family and home. From picking us up from the airport in the middle of the night and welcoming us with a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake. To a hearty breakfast and ending the day...

The kindness and the hospitality of your hosts: you find it with the owners of Taurikura: Toni and Wayne. Their way to welcome you...

We were travelling with another couple and we all had a first class, true New Zealand experience staying with Wayne and Toni at the Taurikura Lodge. It is a beautiful lodge, self sufficient in power with 2 wind turbines on location, with a pool, hot tub, massage room and movie room. The rooms are clean, spacious and bright, with beautiful...

Everyday was a delight, Great Food, Excellent Wine and Tasty New Zealand Beers. The staff/family were second to none and and they made everyday one to remember.

Owners/hosts Toni and Wayne really make you feel at home in this Boutique Lodge. Recently built as a luxury lodge - this hotel is powered by 2 small wind turbines out in the field in front. I had a lamb roast while I was there, with potatoes julienne carrots and other local vegies. While it doesn't sound avantgarde the food...
