“Great Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Lace and Cyndi worked very hard to make my wife and I feel at home. Evergreen Lodge is located in a spectacular spot, just a five minute drive away from downtown Queenstown. This was our last destination in New Zealand and we both agreed that it was our favorite. The lodge was helpful in giving us advice on local attractions as well as helping us with anything and everything we needed like taxi services or other requests. Our stay here was during Christmas and we loved how welcome we felt here. Great place to stay in this amazing city of Queenstown!

I cannot begin to explain the delightful time we had staying at the Evergreen Lodge. Hosts, Lace and Cyndi make you feel right at home. The rooms are incredibly large and spacious and there is an amazing view from every window. Every morning we were woken up to a gourmet breakfast (made to order) followed by great trips of activities to do in beautiful Queenstown. Hiking is right outside the door, and skydiving is a MUST. Thanks so much for the wonderful hospitality - we will definitely return!

Room Tip: I would recommend the Wha or Toru rooms. Sunrises are amazing. They have a lovely deck out back to e...

My husband surprised me for my birthday, with a 5 day stay at the Evergreen Lodge, which was the perfect location for a relaxing holiday, with plenty of activity options. Lace and Cindy made our stay really special with plenty of insider tips on where to eat, and with a different breakfast option every day, ranging from healthy but delicious oatmeal blueberry muffins, to gruyere and mushroom quiche, plus bacon and eggs! They even gave me a birthday surprise or two, which was really special.

With the beautiful view of the lake and mountains from the communal living room and our suite, I spent a couple of days relaxing there, making full use of the sauna, bath and in-room drinks options (including lemon and honey!), which was just the tonic I needed.

Room Tip: We had a room with a view which was awesome.

We struck it lucky finding Evergreen Lodge. Secluded yet close to the township. Lovely place to stay. Cyndi and Lace are fantastic hosts and gave us great service. Not to mention the picture postcard views from every window!! Had an unforgettable stay and will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Tahi, Rua and Toru are the best rooms.

My partner and I booked a single night at this lodge in need of a place close to town but far enough away to feel like we were actually getting away (mainly from our mates who we were travelling with!). The lodge proved to be everything it promised and more - the photos on the website are very accurate and every amenity and need was accounted for by the friendly management. They even ordered our takeaway dinner, picked it up for us and set it out on the dining room table! We had a great time and would definitely recommend the place to anyone and everyone!

Room Tip: We chose the Wha suite which had a little balcony and great views of the lake and mountains

I had a wonderful time in Queenstown and could not have been happier with my stay at Evergreen Lodge. The lodge itself is fantastic. It has a very inviting and comfortable feel and offers everything you need including breathtaking views, all the amenities and excellent food. Cyndi and Lace were wonderful hosts and were very helpful and accommodating to my wife and I. I can't wait to get back to Queenstown and look forward to staying at Evergreen Lodge again.

For my wife and I, this was our first trip to New Zealand. We had been recommended Evergreen Lodge from friends of ours who had stayed here last year and had an amazing time. We were aware that the place was under new management, and thus there was a chance that the experience would be a different one, but we decided to give it a go anyway. Boy, are we glad that we did. What a magical place — it's like something out of a fairytale. The jaw-dropping mountain and lake views literally surround you. You almost won't believe that they're real. Waking up to them was really energising and quite wonderful — a feeling I'll remember forever.
The property itself is sensational. A picturesque dwelling that (and this might be hard to believe) is not done justice by the photos, as nice as they may appear. Actually being here and spending time here is another experience itself. It was warm, inviting and most of all, beautifully kept.
The new hosts, Cyndi and Lace were fantastic. They worked hard to make us feel comfortable, and we always felt like they were prepared to do whatever it took to make our experience an even better one. They were happy to tailor meals to our liking and everything was cooked to perfection. They were just lovely company, had a fun sense of humour and took pride, not only in their place, but in the service they delivered.
The facilities were fantastic. We made great use of the gym and the sauna while there, and the lounge area was just the perfect, cosy space to unwind with a drink and some good company. I'm one for new experiences, but I can tell you, our next trip to New Zealand will see us right back here again. Thanks for a holiday to remember.
