Stayed 10 nights in the Bach Feb 2014 with two mates for a quiet fishing adventure. If you want peace, tranquility, remote location, gorgeous views with inspiring walks, along with a lake full of 4-6 pound trout this is the place for you. Personal service and the managers couldn't do enough for us. Absolutely loved the place.

I beg any visitor to NZ or resident to come here and enjoy a part of NZ that is so beautiful. If you are searching for tranquility Lake Brunner Lodge is it. The surrounding area is just breathtaking and so unspoiled. The beautiful walk from the Lodge to Bains Bay and up to the waterfall behind the Lodge are truly... More

I recently stayed for a night at the lodge, it reminded me of a colonial house, inside was very welcoming, library poolroom, lounge, the views were spectacular, although the weather was kind, I understand it is under new management and this seems to be working. The food was mouth watering, our hosts were attentive, but in a very sensitive way.... More

There are very few times when everything comes together to make a trip perfect and so it was with my stay at Lake Brunner Lodge. The food, the rooms, the location, the fishing, the west coast weather (only one day of rain!!), the dogs , the walks and most importantly the attentive hospitality of the wonderful hosts David and Jackie....

Stayed for two nights over Easter. A great get away in a peaceful location in a beautiful building. Large comfortable rooms with views onto the lake, timber lined hallways, a well stocked library, two sitting rooms and verandahs to sit on and take in the view and chill out. With a short walk to the waterfall behind the lodge, or... More

Me & my 7 year old stayed 1 night in July. Lovely lodge & great value at the winter rates. Nice room, en-suite & fantastic bed. Hosts were brilliant & didn't mind my boy rampaging around their kitchen and chasing the dogs around the property. Extensive library & good fire in lounge a bonus.

We spent two nights at this beautifully remote lodge on the shores of Lake Brunner and had a most relaxing stay. The lodge has a very charming 1920s feel with it's elegantly proportioned, wood panelled rooms which are decorated with understated character. Our kind hosts David and Jackie welcomed us and went out of their way to ensure that we... More

We stayed two nights after having been traveling around the South Island for ten days. Our hosts Jackie and David were gracious. We arrived in the pouring rain and we were offered tea and sandwiches, a fire was going and we all relaxed in what felt like our private lodge. The accomodations were wonderful with beautiful views of the lake.... More
