The sense of something really great just arond the corner begins when your turn off the main road and take the scenic drive to the Lodge, all the time in view of a wonderful lake, that the lodge sits on. The view across the crystal blue lake to the mountains is a scene to behold. Each morning the mountains reflect... More

What a surprise! My lovely husband surprised me with a stay at Blanket Bay for my birthday. I know - gobsmacking!, I was amazed when we headed for Glenorchy as had stayed at the hotel there several years ago mmm I thought surely not - and not was right. We turned into the gate at BB and from that moment... More

We stayed at Blanket Bay after having visited a series of beautiful properties, all very different from each other, throughout the South Island. The road to Glenorchy, where we had lunch before checking in, is breath taking and well worth the effort even if you're not staying at Blanket Bay. The weather began to turn as we arrived and it...

Pauline and Tom Tusher have created one of the top Hotels in the world. The setting, while dining outside on the deck, is right on the Lake and looking up at the at the magnificent range of Mountains is like no other place that we have experienced. The Blanket Bay staff and culinary team are so accommodating that you feel... More

We stayed at Blanket Bay for a week and didn't want to leave! The staff are all very friendly and go out of their way to offer you any assistance. The 5 course dinner each night was amazing - some of the best food we've had. There is also an option for private dining in the wine cellar, one of... More

Snow-capped Mountains greeted us at the beginning of our stay at Blanket Bay and this was to set the scene for what was to become one of the most unforgettable holidays we have ever experienced. The level of service and dedication from all the staff at Blanket Bay was exceptional. The organisational abilities of Mark, Judy and Mishka were the... More

Stayed for 3 nights at Blanket Bay and it set the bar for quality and standard for our holiday. Very nice accommodation with the most stunning views over the Lake . Staff were all very friendly, more like one big family, and couldn't do enough for us seeing to everything we needed. Dinner in the evenings was very relaxing and... More

We spent three nights at Blanket Bay. We had a nice large room with a lovely balcony overlooking the snow capped mountains (Remarkables?). The staff greets you when you arrive and are there to help literally every second of your stay. They even greet your helicopter on the lawn when you do a day of sightseeing (with tea and pastries...
