The staff were excellent, the restaurant was fantastic, the 14 of us were really well looked after. Very helpful with recommendations for places to visit on the island. Very happy to recommend the Great Barrier Lodge to friends & family. Thank you for looking after us so well. See you next time.

This was our first visit to the Island, how bad is that when we live just across the channel. The food the lodge the location our new found friends Angeline and Clive, their son Jack where awesome, the chief (sorry chief forgot your name) amazing, food amazing. My wife and I were there just 3 weeks ago and on Friday I'm taking my sons there where we will base and do some diving and fishing. I have travelled all over the world and with out doubt this little piece of paradise would be my favorite

A beautiful secluded location with stunning views from our room. The owners were very friendly and helpful in telling us the best spots on the island to visit. The food was absolutely superb. Great Barrier is an amazing untouched paradise and hopefully remains that way!
