We walked into this hotel by chance as we were disappointed with another hotel we booked for our stay and it turned out to be one of our best decisions. We took a one bedroom apartment which was spacious, tastefully decorated and had a splendid view of the lake. The living room cum kitchen opens up to a beautiful balcony.... More

Friendly and chatty staff, great deals. My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights, at first they were only able to accompany us for 2 nights but got something for the 3rd night, which is free upgrade from 1 bedroom unit with lake front view to a 3 bedroom unit that has sauna bath tub and even greater view. Absolutely... More

Pretty disappointed with our experience here. We weren't made aware that our room had been double booked and felt that we were just brushed off and sent down the road without explanation to what we feel was a massive down grade from what we were expecting

After staying a night in a hotel up the road we were pleased to discover that this place was so nice. We were in a small studio unit upstairs and the view across to the lake was wonderful. The room had everything we needed for a 2 night stay and was clean, comfortable and laid out in such a way... More

Over rated and in need of some attention to bring it up to an acceptable standard. We stayed in what was classified as a "3 bedroom penthouse" and was in fact a two bedroom apartment plus atrium. The atrium was not useable in the middle of winter due to lack of heating so we ended up paying overs for a... More

First the positives- attentive, efficient, friendly staff. Great location, fabulous views,spacious well-equipped apartment (3 bed penthouse). If the atrium is going to be considered as a 3rd bedroom, a small oil heater is not sufficient to warm it in winter as the room is nearly all glass! The tiled floor in the atrium could do with a rug and there... More

We stayed for a week in the three bedroom penthouse. Our two sons and their families joined us so there were 6 adults and two babies. the apartment is in a great location overlooking Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables and there is always something interesting to see. It was within easy walking distance of town with its many restaurants and... More

Stayed in 3 bedroom apartment with a family of 7. Location overlooking Lake Wakatipu, view of Remarkables and close proximity to city centre were big pluses. Accommodation standard was mid range but more than adequate for our needs given we didn't spend a lot of time in the apartment. Bit short on some kitchen utensils but very comfortable and 3... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom executive suite. It was a great size with 2 single beds in 2 of the rooms and a queen in the other, also a separate kitchen and lounge/dinning area and 2 bathrooms. The hot water cylinder was too small for an apartment this size, especially as it has a large spa bath. We had... More

We just spent 5 nights at The Lodges and thoroughtly enjoyed ourselves. The apartment was extremely comfortable and had a lovely old world charm. The beds were comfortable however the pillows needed more stuffing. Would definitely recommend staying here. We had exceptional views of the lake and snow capped moutains from the balcony.
