Gorgeous situation. Our favourite memory of the 2 days was listening to the bird song and watching the mountains slowly emerge from the clouds this morning, whilst drinking coffee on the verandah. And second favourite was time sitting in the hot tub out in the garden - magical to hear the near-silence of evening with just the odd bird and... More

We were lucky to have this beautiful B&B to ourselves. The property is beautiful, spotless, and a joy. The hot tub is a great bonus! Breakfast was amazing - seriously one of the best breakfasts I've had at any B&B anywhere in the world. Delightful owners and manager as well. Glenorchy is a gem, especially once the LOTR tourists leave!... More

Thanks for your review. Glenorchy is starting to be very popular during the day and hence there are a lot of people in town and by the lake where the Glenorchy Lake House is located. When 4 pm hits, they all tend to head back to Queenstown and you will then appreciate the peace and tranquility of Glenorchy and will... More

Wish I had read that last review before staying here. Glenorchy is lovely but this 'Lake' house was outrageously overpriced. For a price that was more than a great room at Millbrook, we got no sound proofing from the people next door, a faulty lock between the rooms, a view of a car park instead of a lake and access...

We are sorry the guest found me "intransigent" When my manager phoned me I was trying to extricate young children from a birthday party and get them back to the boat to Kinloch that was leaving in 10 minutes time. The guest was asking to speak to me and despite being told the above, refused to let me call her... More

This is a nice timber cottage that is well appointed with a great bath and spa outside. The big king bed is also very comfortable and the accommodation is located in a convenient spot. However at $340+ per night it is completely overpriced for what you get. What gets worse, this price was just for the room, not even the... More

Kinloch_Lodge, Owner at Glenorchy Lake House, responded to this review

We're sorry these guests found the property over-priced. This is a bed and breakfast so there is just one lounge and dining area shared by guests, not a lounge and dining area each. The website clearly depicts what the property is a about. We offer a boat transfer to dinner at Kinloch which costs $15 per person each way. Most... More

We stayed at this B&B because of it's easy access to High Country Horses and Paradise with all of the georgeous film locations. Nice and roomy, very modern and an excellent host in Suzi....She makes a tremendous flat white! Very convenient, great hosts and the entire Glenorchy area is off the charts.

Having been fortunate enough to visit Glenorchy a number of times and to stay at the Glenorchy Lake House on a couple of those occasions I felt it only fair to let others know just how good it is. The house sits in an amazing location on the edge of a quiet reserve with stunning views of the lake and... More

Glenorchy is a small town in the heart of Otago back country. The Lake House is a well appointed, very comfortable home with a stunning location on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. Toni is the owner/manager/host who serves delicious breakfast and services the house while you are on the many outdoor activities the area offers. Lunch and dinner is to... More

This small lodge presents the very best of New Zealand luxury boutique accomodation. There had been a mix-up with our booking but it was quickly sorted to our advantage and we spent a very relaxed couple of days with the place to ourselves. The rooms are beautiful and the beds incredibly comfortable. Breakfast was sumptuous and they serve REAL TEA... More

We arrived late, having spent more time hiking than planned. OUr keys and a welcome letter were left out along with two gigantic cookie and cake plates. We felt most welcome.

As one of the recent negative reviewers stated, the reviews of Glenorchy Lake House may have more to do with expectations than the actual experience of staying here. The owners do run the Kinloch Lodge on the other side of the lake, so it is true that depending on when you arrive, you may have to get the key in... More
