John & Pauline are wonderful and generous hosts who spend a lot of time and effort to make each guest feel right at home. The breakfasts are delicious and sumptuous, the après-ski canapés are plentiful and hearty and the glasses of delicious Central Otago pinot noir by the open log fire are divine. John & Pauline will drop you off... More

Just returned from ski vacation in Wanaka, the beautiful lesser-known, and far less touristy part of the South Island than its neighbor, Queenstown. The Lime Tree Lodge is located in an easily accessed serene valley surrounded by farmland with snow capped 360 degree mountain views. We were greeted at our car by our lovely hosts who were not only caring... More

Our stay at Lime Tree was great. We stayed in the Black Peak Suite, which has its own living area and fireplace. The bed was comfy (I am picky about mattresses)! It was a lovely place to return to after a day's 'tramping' or skiing. Pauline and John are just as much a part of the experience of staying at... More

We have stayed in many B&B's around the world, but Pauline and John provided unmatched hospitality during our 2 night stay. They provided for our every need and really did make us feel we were in our home away from home. Don't pass this place up if you are anywhere close!!! Rooms were very comfortable and clean.

We only had time to spend one night at Lime Tree Lodge but wish we could have stayed longer. Pauline and John have made Lime Tree Lodge the epitome of what a B&B should be.

In March we had the opportunity to spend two nights at the Lodge. The friendliness and hospitality was unmatched anywhere and the lodge is really great, just like a home away from home. Great outdoor activities such as the four wheel drive pasture tour. Bob B.
