We stayed here on our first night of our South Island trip. It was an ideal distance from Christchurch, allowing us to reach it before nigh following our flight. We were welcomed by a wonderful fireplace and given a tour of the lodge. The room/ cabin where we stayed (number 1) was very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed drinks in... More

Overall we found Flock Hill to be a bit disappointing. We were on our honeymoon in NZ and asked ahead to make sure we had a cabin overlooking the pond. Turns out that while our cabin "faced" the pond, you couldn't actually see it. Also, since we were there in the shoulder season, neither the summer nor the winter activities... More

From the east to the west of South Island via Highway 73, Flock Hill Lodge made the perfect pit stop. A gem in the middle of nowhere indeed. We stayed in a self-contained cottage number 5 which comes with 2 rooms with queen size bed and 1 room with 3 single beds, there is also another single bed in the... More

We happened upon this incredible place by a stroke of good fortune. It was the best place we stayed on our entire trip to the South Island. John and Wendy go out of their way to ensure your stay exceeds all expectations! They cook amazing food, prepare anything you request, the rooms are full apartments!! It's on a gorgeous farm... More

We stopped here for morning tea 4 years ago and it was so inviting that we decided to stay here instead of Christchurch as we were heading to Kaikoura. The lodge itself is very comfortable with a sitting and dining area. We were disappointed to hear that they were no longer providing morning tea for travellers but understand that they... More

First, I love these red houses. They are very cute, situate in a huge farmland. The owner keeps horses, dogs and sheep in the farm too. Horses were very nice. Second, the owner John and his wife were friendly, nice and decent couple. John helped us with our luggage and wendy cooked us a delicious meal. We loved them.^^ My... More

So, after some wonderful stays (see out other reviews) on our three week tour of NZ, one our second to last night, we turned up at Flock Hill Lodge. I'm sorry to be leaving such a poor review. 1. On arrival, we walked into the bar area, to be greeted by a gentleman behind the bar. We told him we'd... More

My husband and I recently got married at Flock Hill Lodge. Everything was perfect! Comfortable cabins, amazing food, friendly and helpful staff. The staff ran a perfect operation. They were very professional and made our planning easier and the day run smoothly. The location was perfect for an outdoor ceremony and for beautiful wedding photos with the Alps in the... More

In a beautiful location worth stunning views to the the Alpine areas. Excellent customer service, very friendly and Helpful. Offered choices of menus and other options if wanted. Stunning views from restaurant.Very quiet and relaxed. Surrounded by a working farm adds to the ambience. Highly recommended.

If you say there isn't much between Porters and Arthur's Pass, you're probably right. Flock Hill is one of the exceptions though hardly really visible from the street. No worries, it is signposted and just off the main road. Beautiful garden like setting, fantastic views and just a bit of farm life make it a peaceful place to stay. We... More
