The couple of days that i spent here were just unique. This place doesn't give you a lavish room, you even don't have a private bathroom. But all that doesn't bother me because both me and my wife had loads of fun sitting in the common fireplace and talking to people and sharing our stories. The host, Rodd is just... More

Cosy wood panelled room, the best bed I had in New Zealand in 3 months, super-organized kitchen with all the pots and tools you can need, and even a dishwater! Everything clean and tidy. Beautiful garden and a family feeling that made feel at ease. Highly recommended.

We stayed for two nights and our room was spotless as were the communal bathroom and shower rooms. ,kitchen facilities were super. Nolene and rod were very welcoming and helpful. The lodge is great for walking into Wanaka or driving further afar to do day hikes in mt. Aspiring.

We stayed with our 6 month old daughter and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating! The facilities were exceptionally clean and the kitchen was well equipped! The hosts were full of helpful information about the local area and the walk to Rocky Mountain via Diamond Lake was fantastic!

I couldnt agree more with the rave reviews. This place is really a cut above the rest - spotlessly clean and you have your own space in the refridgerator and storage. Rod provided many helpful suggestions and made every effort to make our stay delightful. the kitchen and the common living spaces are simply wonderful. There was another group who... More

This place is truly a 'gem' and I use the term in all authenticity and very sparingly. Rod and his wife are exceptional people and very helpful and friendly from the very beginning. Secondly, the room and the whole living area and kitchen are like a small boutique ski lodge. This is in no shape way or form a backpacker... More

I was pretty disappointed at the rude treatment we received. Some guests complained about the 'noise' we were making. Completely unfair. While we did come in late, not one of us had said a single word and we had been in the building for less than a minute before some lunatic came running out to tell us off. In the... More

The managers were extremely friendly. The location is not far from town and provide a quiet place to relax. The bed is also very comfy and... More
