Such a lovely, homely atmosphere.... Friendly personable staff.... Warm log fire.... Just right for a chilly winter's night escape from my own kitchen! The food was wholesome, healthy and mm mmmmm ... scrumptious! We live "out in the sticks" ourselves and so there aren't any decent eateries nearby, so every now and again we make an extra effort and travel... More

We took a tour group to this restaurant & relished every morsel! The group was our Sunday Lunch Club, & many of them said it was one of their favourite eateries - and we've been to a few! We had such delights as a couscous, salmon prawn salad flavoured with kaffir lime & lemon grass; beetroot & red cabbage salad... More

I stayed with Lance and Mary while enjoying a Ventouro Cycling Camp. The Styx is not expensive but what a fabulous place and great value for money. I enjoyed an intimate atmosphere where nothing is too much trouble. The basics are done to an extremely high standard and the food is made from fresh ingredients and is plentiful. Lance is... More

Beyond all expectation. When they said dinner was included, I did not realise Mary produces culinary miracles! Great room, great view, great company and an amazing wild life tour by Phil (thanks Phil!).

The Styx is 1.5 km from the Maungatautarii Reserve, and serves a most-wonderful Prix-fixe meal, served buffet-style. Ours started with an assortment of dips, followed by the main meal of duck glazed with a cranberry sauce, served on roasted vegetables, excellent lamb chops,broccoli, zucchini fritters (extraordinary things-light and airy and delicious), Caesar salad and couscous. Desert was homemade cardamon ice... More

Just back from another experience at Out in the Styx. I'd been twice previously just for dinner, although just and dinner should not be in the same sentence when describing a meal at Out in the Styx! This time we arrived early in the morning, walked over the mountain and came back for a spa and then dinner. We stayed... More

Thanks for a great weekend at the best guest house in New Zealand. Our hosts Lance & Mary looked after us all in a very relaxed easy way, nothing was too much trouble. Mary's home made food was fantastic and we had lots of fun singing and dancing.

What a wonderful weekend. How can I best describe it? Well, three hours into the walk across the mountain I admit to feeling a bit chilly with still a couple of hours to go. As I chewed on my lunch I fantasised about what would be a perfect conclusion to the walk. I imagined slipping into a warm spa pool... More
