Thank you Tish and Murray, for our best stay in any location. Your care and attention was outstanding from the time you welcomed us at the door to the time you waved us goodbye.
You both know how to quickly assess the needs of your guests, and then ensure these are met .. .we will be back
Cheers,

Vic and Katie French, Cammeray, NSW, Australia

This was our first trip to NZ and one of the highlights for us was the friendly - but super efficent - informality of the people we met wherever we went. Murray and Tish - or Tish and Murray as they form a good partnership whichever way round - epitomised the very best of this feature.

From the moment we arrived until well after we had moved on they contributed greatly to our holiday: the comfort of the lodge, the open invitation to absolutey make ourselves at home, the helpful suggestions on restaurants and trips, the home cooking - and the easy friendliness of our hosts. Other locations came close - in different respects - but none matched the combination we met here.

And all topped off by the stunning location....

A definite recommendation to any of our friends who visit Queenstown - and enough to make us put Queenstown on our itinerary the next time we travel to NZ.

We spent two nights with Murray and Tish and could only wish it was more. It a most relaxing break in a long tour of NZ. We were made to feel extremely welcome and the lodge was very comfortable. We were told to help ourselves to wine and anything from the kitchen, including some delicious home made biscuits. Breakfast was awesome, freshly cooked and as much as you wanted. We cannot praise Evergreen highly enough - stay, you will not regret it. The changing panorama of the mountains through the picture windows will live with us for a very long time.

Tish and Murray run a superb b&b. It is the best run, best food, best views we stayed in during our four week's in NZ. Nothing was too much trouble for Tish and Murray. Even give you as much free wine, spirits, cookies(made my Tish) as you like.

Stay at least three nights as there are plenty of places to visit .

And we would miss Murray if we had met him. This is a beautiful lodge, very private, with a wonderful view of the Remarkables. At the same time it is a very convenient location, close to Queenstown and a great jumping-off point for day trips. It is beautifully furnished, with excellent beds and linens. Best of all is Tish, who makes you feel that she is just delighted to spend time with you and would accommodate any request. Snacks, drinks and hearty breakfasts are all served up generously. You are made to feel truly at home. We will go back!

Just a wonderful place to stay. Murray & Tish made us so welcome, it was almost like being at home. Our room was very comfortable and the view was amazing, changing each day with the different weather conditions. The guest living areas are spacious, comfortable and again with amazing views. Breakfast was great - as little or as much of whatever you wanted. For us Queenstown will always be one of our favorite places in the world. We'll be back!

Evergreen Lodge is a perfect place to be in Queenstown.
The Lodge is beautiful, the accommodations are perfect and the hosts are incredibly helpful, kind and gracious. Evergreen is situated only a few minutes from 'downtown' and has unbelievable views and privacy.

Our stay was top notch and we would *highly* recommend this Lodge to anyone and everyone coming through town.
