We spent one night at Lakeside, but it was a perfect experience. The hosts are new having taken over the lodge only three weeks previously, but they were exceptionally good. We were made part of family and enjoyed feeding the animals, boating on their private lake and then a fantastic sundown on their wonderful verandah. Breakfast was exceedingly good, with... More

We're just back from a 3 week visit to NZ to celebrate a "significant" wedding anniversary. Lakeside Lodge was recommended by friends in Scotland and from the moment we arrived Graeme and Lisa welcomed us with open arms. They go the extra mile to make the accommodation and experience of your visit outstanding. Their knowledge of the area and NZ... More

Lisa, Graeme, Archie and the dogs were perfect hosts. They were so great at recommending places to go and see, things to do and where to eat. Their house is gorgeous and in a perfect location for exploring the local area whist being able to enjoy the complete peace of their small holding. Everything was perfectly clean and very well...

The owners Lisa and Graeme, were wonderful hosts. We had a comfortable room. near the house overlooking the meadow and lake . They were kind enough to... More

Many thanks for your kind review and apologies for taking so long to write a response - a combination of being overseas and the usual time pressures. We really enjoyed spending time with you both; the unplanned experiences are often the best. We do hope our paths may cross again one day. More

Welcoming hosts, beautiful house and facilities, lovely view, spacious room, great breakfast and dinner. Anglo/NZ hosts Graeme and Lisa. Only one other bed and breakfast I have used has been this good. The complete package.

We chose the Lakeside Lodge as a base to explore Abel Tasman and thoroughly enjoyed our 2 day stay there. Graeme and Lisa were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble and we spent enjoyable times around the dining room table with a glass of wine putting the world to rights. The Lodge is around 15 minutes drive from Motueka... More

What a find. Great hosts lovely children and 2 fine dogs - friut on the trees and grapes on the vines. Trout to challenge the best in nearby rivers and mountain trails equal to the best we have seen. We will be back, again and again.

Lisa and Graeme are excellent hosts. They give the feeling of being at home and ensure well-being in this beautiful home and this delightful rural setting. It is a luxury B&B homestay . The breakfast with the family is a delight and very lovingly prepared. The swim in the river and relax in the garden are real highlights

Without doubt LLM has to be the most welcoming and relaxed 'home' (B&B doesn't really do it justice) I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. Absolutely fabulous location in which to chill (and in our case recuperate from 5 days camped in the 'wilderness'').... I can't thank L&G (and the children) enough for welcoming us into the family...... More
