This was one of my favourite places in New Zealand. If you want a lodge off the beaten track with amazing scenery, fantastic food and welcoming hosts, this is for you. We stayed in one of the cabins and loved it. The hot tub was a bonus and the food was to die for. Dean told us about a short... More

The Lodge is a gem, linking back to an earlier era, but with most of the today's accepted creature comforts. It is immaculately presented and Toni is a fantastic host, not to mention chef! I was in a twin room with a very comfortable bed, and while there wasn't an en-suite, there were plenty of bathrooms and with 3 other... More

We really like this lodge. It is off the beaten track but worth the detour if you are looking for some peace, quiet and relaxation. Host: Toni is a marvellous host. Greeted us with tea and coffee and home-baked cake on arrival. Extremely helpful, caring and thinking of our needs all the time. Location and activities: Out of the way... More

Lake Coleridge Lodge is on the TeAraroa route and so we visited on a recce for the next stage of our South Island walk from the Lewis Pass down the Taramakau, across to the Waimakariri, over Lagoon Saddle and down the Harper River to the Lake and then onward through to Tekapo. The Lodge seems to be a well kept... More

My Aunt and I stayed for three nights in early August and originally booked a twin room. Upon arrival I found Toni had upgraded us to a Queen room each as we were the only guests during the quiet end of the week. The wonderful service started at the door! Toni was a wonderful host who made us feel very... More

We stayed at Lake Coleridge Lodge in March of 2014 while traveling through New Zealand. The lodge is a historic building that housed the people who constructed the hydro-electric scheme that runs from the lake above to the river below. Toni welcomed us when we arrived that evening and suggested we head right up the hill to catch the sunset... More

We stayed just one night with our two young children (1 &3) the service Toni gave us was second to none! Our dinner which she served at an earlier time to accommodate the kids was gorgeous! Our rooms were immaculate and comfortable. There is a pot-a-cot available which was a great help, as well as a toy box for the... More

This IS a Lodge. Your bedroom is exactly that! We had an ensuite room which although small was very clean and comfortable. We had continuous tea and coffee available and comfortable lounge with TV where we met fellow guests. The meal was a lovely home cooked dinner cooked by Toni who with her partner owns and runs the Lodge. There... More

It was our first time to Lake Coleridge and we loved the quiet remote feeling and staying virtually on top of an old power station. The lodge has great history and interesting old photos on the walls. We (two couples) were the only guests, until a French tramper arrived and pitched his tent on the lawn. We were all extremely...

My husband and I had a wonderful 2 nights at Lake Coleridge Lodge. It was peaceful, relaxing and a perfect tonic. The quiet, beautiful surroundings would be hard to beat and there is plenty to do. The hosts, Toni and Dean, are the friendliest couple. They are both knowledgeable and attentive to every wish. The breakfasts: fruit, yoghurt, cereal, toast,... More
