We were taken by water taxi to the jetty at Ship Cove, the end of the Queen Charlotte Track in the South Island in New Zealand, and walked on well groomed pathways through verdant forests (15 k.) to Furneaux Lodge. Our luggage had already been delivered there by Cougar Line Water Taxi and deposited in our room. There are several... More

We set out to walk the Queen Charlotte Walkway in the Marlborough Sounds staying in budget accommodation, taking our own breakfasts and lunches, and eating dinner in restaurants and pubs where that option was available. Our second night was spent at Furneaux Lodge. Also see the related reviews of Resolution Bay Cabins, Punga Cove Resort, DeBretts and the restaurant at... More

We were dropped off late at Ship Cove so arrived in at 7pm. Cant say there was a warm friendly welcome and put this down to the fact of most of the workers are backpackers. Quite disappointed with our room as it appeared we paid for the better rooms but these had not had a makeover in a long time... More

Clean, comfy units in between beautiful water and gorgeous Queen Charlotte track. Lovely beds, modern bathrooms, straightforward cooking setup, and shared laundry facilities. Bar and restaurant offering up delicious meals and drinks - the fish!! Water taxi pickup, too.

We stayed in a simple cabin here on route for the Queen Charlotte Sound biking with the family, Dad, Mum and two girls aged 9 and 4! Setting is beautiful and tranquil. You pay extra to be so isolated but it is well worth it. The facilities are very clean and staff friendly and accomodating! Food all made onsite and... More

I didn't stay here but passed through on a truly miserable day while walking 26 km of the Queen Charlotte Track. Our large group arrived cold, wet, hungry, and aware there was a wedding at the lodge that day so thought maybe our arrival might not have been great timing. The staff and ladies who promptly took orders, offered us... More

We hosted a business fishing weekend from Furneaux Lodge with guests from around NZ. The service was outstanding - nothing seemed too much trouble both in the planning stages and over the 3 days we were there this included the boat service from mooring to jetty and the bar/restaurant staff. The 2 bedroom chalets were clean, comfortable and well appointed... More

We moored and had lunch here. It was a wonderful setting with great food. At end of jetty it could do with a sign pointing to the left so new travelers know where to go. Very casual and relaxing. It was nice to be able to have a shower before we headed of again. Very nice

We stayed 1 night in a self contained room with a family of 5 plus 2 grandparents. It was cosy but plenty of room to sleep. Clean and well maintained. The kitchen had only 2 smallish pots for cooking however the staff in the bar quickly found us a spare frying pan from the main kitchen. The staff were all... More

Lovely and lively! We stayed here as we walked the Queen Charlotte track and being a long weekend, the place was full - not with walkers but with partying boatloads. So the bar overflowed onto the lawns in the warm evening sunshine - good fun. The food was excellent but there were no cheap options - for two meals and... More
