My wife and I have just returned from a most enjoyable weekend at the Kania Lodge. We based ourselves here to visit Gdansk, Soport the Kashubian countryside and Malbork Castle during a weekend trip from Warsaw. The hospitality provided by Anja, John and their staff could not have been better. The breakfasts and evening meals were wonderful - locally sourced... More

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 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
