We booked into Podium Lodge initially for two nights, We had a large family group of 3 x couples, a pet dog & parents in a campervan.

They even left flowers & mandarins in our rooms – ontop of this the actual accommodation was fantastic with lovely clean, quiet rooms & very comfortable beds.

All the staff were exceptional to deal with – even down to the cleaners who were awesome & took a personal interest in our welfare. We would all highly recommend the Podium Lodge as the only place to stay in Cambridge.

2. Port Waikato Holiday Park 4* – Pet Friendly Rentals Hamilton NZ

Port Waikato Holiday Park

Located 1.1 km from Sunset Beach, Port Waikato Holiday Park provides accommodation with a shared lounge, a tennis court and a shared kitchen for your convenience.

There is a children’s playground and a barbecue at this property and guests can go fishing and canoeing nearby.

We stayed 6 nights over the Christmas/new year period, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We found all of the staff to be very friendly and approachable and we also enjoyed the cleanliness of the park, it is well maintained. Another huge plus for us is that our dog can stay too.

I would definitely recommend this place to stay, It feels safe as there are barrier arms to stop traffic and regular patrols to keep an eye on things. We also had visitors who joined us over the new years period, who had no trouble signing into the office and were made to feel very welcome.

Thanks guys for providing the entertainment for new years, everyone in the camp we spoke to enjoyed it!

Good people, Good place, Good times, See ya next year!

Arrived on Christmas day. Nothing was too much trouble, dispute interrupting check in staffs Xmas lunch. A great pet friendly Motor Camp. Very clean & tidy. Great facilities, TV lounge, kitchen & shower block. Friendly staff.

Port Waikato is a remote west coast beach location, only an hour from Auckland but 50 years away….if quiet is for you then this is your place; not a lot to do unless you are into beach walks, surfing or kayaking, but a lovely, relaxing and quiet location.

A local diary is there for the essentials, a fast-food takeaway van sighted right in the campsite for evening meals, and a cafe on the beach opens occasionally. Not a lot to do for young children; more suited for older families or couples and well-behaved pets are welcome by prior arrangement.

The park was purchased two years ago by the local maori hapu (a consortium of local people) so owners have a real interest in looking after the property, which is in immaculate order with modern, spotless facilities.

Recommended if you want a quiet get-away, just don’t expect to be able to get too much locally

It was an added bonus that we were able to bring our dog!

This is one of the BEST Motels I have stayed at in North Island. I was able to have my Border Collies in the unit with me and the staff were very friendly and respectful not to disturb my dogs.

The motel is in the process of being refurbished to a high standard. My room was a newly refurbished one, so everything was fresh and new.

Sky TV and Wifi was great. Good sized kitchen with all cooking amenities so you if you didn’t want to eat out you didn’t have to! Excellent bathroom facilities too with good sized towels and a ‘real’ hairdryer!
