Well appointed, lovely setting. The owners Robin and Sue make you feel at home right away. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The whole experience was simply grand! Breakfast was delicious and nutritious, well done

I stayed here on my own for two nights the 3rd & 4th Jan as part of my trip around NZ, and could not have been looked after better by Robin and Sue. When I arrived there was a large plate of fruit fresh from their lovely garden in my room. The lodge is beautiful with lovely bedrooms and the... More

We were struck by the magnificence of the estate as we entered the driveway. The gorgeous estate home is enhanced by the surrounding 8 acres of olive, apple, nut trees and vineyard. Our rooms were lovely and impeccably appointed. We enjoyed a boisterous evening of wine and conversation with other guests and Robin and Sue. A very memorable and lovely... More

Probably the most impressive b&b ever. Wonderful accomodation, most welcoming, interesting and helpful hosts. Superb quiet location, convenient for North or south highways. Amazing gardens, full of fruit, grape vines, and olive trees! Unmatched luxury.

We stayed at Clearview Lodge on 3rd & 4th January 2016 and wished we could have stayed longer! Robin & Sue have created a little piece of heaven. Their property is beautifully maintained both inside and out. The bed and pillows were so comfortable they made us sleep in and almost late for the amazingly good breakfast they provide. Fresh...

We stayed at the Clearview Lodge from December 17 - 18. Arriving to the South Island for the first time, we could not have had a better welcome! We felt at home from as soon as we arrived in the beautiful, garden vineyard setting. We knew almost nothing about the area, but Robin and Sue were more than helpful to... More

Thank you, we love sharing our property with guests and helping out with booking restaurants and activities. We are very lucky to live here and our guests have varied interests but there is always something of interest to do wherever guests are going. The biggest problem is usually too many things to choose from, to fit into the time available.... More

We stayed one night with Robin and Sue. Robin was helpful in pointing us to a dinner option in town and we rang in the new year with them and other guests whose company we found very enjoyable. Fantastic place to stay on the front end or back end of a visit to New Zealand. We spent our last night... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. We do appreciate it. It was nice to meet your sons before their flight. We do find being so close to airport and the city is very convenient. There aren't many cities in the world where you can enjoy space and a rural out look with our own vineyard... More

Thanks for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed our Pinot. I'm going out to work in the vines now, before our next guests arrive.

It was a pleasure having you all to stay. I'm glad you enjoyed meeting our chickens and eating some of their eggs for your breakfast. We are still enjoying raspberries for breakfasts and now the plums are ripening and we have lots of cherries to enjoy, probably for 3 or 4 more weeks. Thanks for taking the time to write... More

This is a lovely home with three guest rooms. Ours was very large and extremely comfortable. The hosts are very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed a glass of wine from their own vineyard with them. Breakfast was great (I loved the homemade rhubarb and strawberry compote) served in the kitchen. The lodge is very handy for the airport although... More
