How we wish we could have stayed longer than the one night we were booked in for. The room was very spacious and the balcony overlooked fantastic views. Shirley and Alastair were amazing hosts with a cup of tea and homemade cakes on arrival and homemade cakes to enjoy on our journey the following day after a lovely cooked breakfast.

This is a very pleasant place to stop if you are driving from Christchurch to Greymouth, over Arthur's Pass. The other reviewers are correct: comfortable and spacious rooms, a relaxing guest area with tea and cakes, and very pleasant hosts. Breakfast was excellent and the surroundings are peaceful.

- out of town (keep your eyes open otherwise you’ll miss the entrance to the drive way) - a bit outdated - owner likes talking to his guests - breakfast only from 7.30 - 8.45am with a little sheet to fill out the night before (very strict, a bit like being back at school) - very helpful and friendly hosts

How can you go wrong with such totally helpful owners? Then add a beautiful home in a beautiful setting. Add well-appointed rooms and public spaces. And a billiard room, sauna, and new jacuzzi. Fantastic! We totally loved this location, and would be delighted to return. Lastly, let me mention the fantastic breakfast and afternoon snacks. Really yummy!! If you're in... More

The cottage at Oak Lodge is supreme --- absolutely modern, clean, and new. It looked like we were the first people to ever stay in the cottage. Would definitely recommend it. Full Oven/cooktop, washer/dryer. We would definitely stay again. Exceptionally quiet and just a shop drive from Greymouth

We stayed in the self contained cottage recently en route to the Glaciers, and it was perfectly equipped for our needs. We were greeted by the owner, Alastair, on arrival and he showed us through the accomodation and recommended some local restaurants, etc. The cottage is only a couple of years old and everything was spotless. It also contains a... More

We stayed at Oak Lodge as a one night stopover and had a great experience. The rooms are large and the beds very comfortable. Alastair met us on arrival and was very helpful with suggestions for dinner. Plenty of room other than your bedroom for guests to use and a quiet but very convenient location to Greymouth. I would highly... More

We were made very welcome when we arrived. Shown to our room, which was beautifully decorated and spacious with a balcony overlooking superb views of the countryside. It was a five minute drive into town. The B&B was beautifully decorated throughout. Breakfast was lovely and we were joined by the owners who gave us an interesting overview of the area... More
