Kania Lodge is a unique place, being owned by Ania and John, she is a painter and he's a former war correspondent, a New Zealander who came to Kaszuby ca 20 years back. They make wonderfully hospitable and interesting hosts, the Lodge is a boutique hotel with individually decorated rooms and great views on jezioro Biale (white lake). It is... More

Every time I come back to Kania Lodge, I wonder how come I've been away for so long... and so I've been coming back for over 10 years. Its a place I always dreamt of and if work didn't keep me busy, I would move there in a blink of an eye. John and Ania are a wonderful hosts and... More

Poland is still a well kept secret - as is Kania Lodge. We have just returned from a memorable visit. This establishment has all the bonus points of Relais et Chateau (it is not a member) with its charm, character, cuisine, courtesy and calm, but at half the price! Our thanks to John and Annia for their kind hospitality and... More

Kania lodge did the job when it comes to relaxation. My wife, 6 month old son, dog Charlie, and I made the 4 hour drive from Warsaw. We all needed a break and Kania lodge delivered. The accommodation, meals, wine list, local forests, small neighboring villages, and atmosphere was exactly what the doctor ordered. Don't wait to book your travel.... More

We had four idyllic days in Kania Lodge in September 2014. The secret of this paradise is the way Ania and John welcome you into their home Each day we set off to circumnavigate the White lake, or wander in the beautiful forest or trek to Kartuzy through the villages and forests paths. Before dinner John encouraged us to taste... More

We stayed for a weekend in late July 2014. Here are our thoughts: The room: The room (upstairs in the main building) was a generous size and tastefully decorated, with great views of the surrounding grounds.There was very little noise from the kitchen and dining area immediately below. The bed was comfortable. Everything was clean. The staff: The staff are... More

I have lost count of the number of times that we have been to Kania lodge. I think the first time that we "checked it out" was around 1994. All that I can say is that every time that we go the experience is more enjoyable. Of course - just as we have over the period - the garden has... More

As a travel writer I suppose I am exceptionally critical of hotel accommodation, food and location. Experience teaches you of course. Here I was more than satisfied in each of these parameters. The owner, John Borrell, is a New Zealander and former war correspondent in the days when it was a truly glamorous and adventurous occupation. Staying at the superb... More

I have spent New Years Eve 2013 at John Borrel's lodge. Its superbly located for anyone looking for peaceful and quiet holidays. The views and surroundings are matching the overall atmosphere. The host is excellent and definitely worth to get to know. Food is excellent and wine selection one of the kind in this parts of Europe. The only comment... More

Fabulous food accompanied by an outstanding wine list and service with a personal touch that leaves you yearning to return.
