We spent three nights a Twin Waters Lodge. The hosts offer fine accomodation and good, friendly and very helpful service in very tasteful surroundings. Their table also forms a fine setting for an informal encounter wit other guest over a glass og wine and a joint dinner. Moreover, the lodge is the best thinkable station for tours in the beautiful... More

We stayed at Twin Waters for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Trish and Mike are excellent hosts and we were invited to join them for a glass on wine on our first night. They made very helpful suggestions about how we could spend our time at Golden Bay, sharing their own experiences and those of other guests. The... More

Brilliant! Loved it ! Thank you Trish!why do I have to write 200 words when a few are enough? Great place to jump off to see seals on Wharariki beach - they came up to me with no encouragement. A real privilege.even more words needed! Twin waters was really so comfortable after staying in an apparently 5 star rated accommodation.

This is our third stay with Trish and Mike. And as before a lovely stay. Trish and Mike are exceptional hosts. Other guests attracted to Twin Waters make for interesting conversation at breakfast and afternoon wine.

I can not say enough great thinks about Twin Waters Lodge. Trish stayed up late to welcome my arrival after driving from Picton up and down the mountains through dense fog. I stayed here two nights and those nights were the best of my trip. Trish welcomed me as though I were family, gave me ideas and places to venture... More

Trish and Mike Boland were the ultimate hosts! We loved our "Safari Room" and couldn't have been more comfortable in their beautiful B&B. The guests have their own living and lounge area beautifully decorated with African arts and crafts. Each guest room has it's own theme and are really well done, we were just partial to ours which was at... More

I was greeted at the door by a dog, which for me is a problem. There is a cat in the house as well, neither are mentioned on the website or the b&b or on booking.com. When I mentioned not recalling reading about the dog on the website; “it is not on the site because he is very sweet and... More

Twinwaterslodge, Owner at Twin Waters Lodge, responded to this review

I thank the reviewer for this review, but would like to clear up a few points about this review that may be misleading: About our animals. As with almost all B&B owners, the premises are also our home, and our pets share this with us. Most New Zealand homes have a cat or dog as a pet, and often both,... More

Twin Waters Lodge was an excellent place to stay while exploring Golden Bay. Very relaxing stay with great hosts and a beautiful environment both inside and out. I would recommend Twin Waters to anyone looking for accomodation in Golden Bay.

Twin Waters is a wonderful peaceful place. We found hosts Mike and Trish were super helpful, nothing was too much trouble. From the wonderful meals, tips about those secret places to go indulge our passion for photography. We have explored Farewell Spit, Cape Farewell and Wharariki Beach - all an easy drive along quiet roads from the lodge. We have... More

This was our third visit here and every visit has had a different flavour and group of friends. Trish and Mike are such great hosts and flexible in their approach - whether it is cooking up a great breakfast, helping you forage for seafood on the most stunning beach or keeping the fire stoked up while it buckets down with...
