“Top Quality Lodge & Hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Really enjoyed our stay in January of 2104 and can only describe it as a high quality, peaceful and relaxing lodge, with hosts Trish and Bazza making us very welcome.
The room was outstanding and the breakfasts whipped up by Trish were first rate....The activities and local restaurant recommended by Bazza were spot on, and we will definitely be back again. Might pop back in winter as its close to the Cardrona Ski Slopes!

We stayed here in December '12 as we were getting doing a heli-wedding on Mount Roy. Trish and Baz were fantastic hosts and were so accomodating when we had to change the wedding day at very late notice due to poor weather. Despite having checked out they let us come back a couple of days later on our wedding day to use the room to get ready. We then returned as Mr and Mrs to enjoy the rest of a bottle of champagne with them in their living room. A wonderful place, hope to visit again soon. Make sure you have the muffins for breakfast!

We stayed two nights at Tin Tub Luxury Lodge and loved every moment (we didn't want to leave). The view from the lodge is truly amazing with great sunsets. My husband particularly liked the tin tub baths outside of our lodge!! Bazz and Trish are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Bazz gave us lots of info on things to do in and around Wanaka, which was really helpful. Trish makes a scrumptious breakfast with all fresh ingredients, many from their own garden and chickens. Our room was pure luxury from the California King Bed to the relaxing spa bath and comfortable lounge chairs. There is a gym with a sauna, tennis court, swimming pool and bikes to borrow. It ticked all our boxes and we will definitely be back!!

The Tin Tub Luxury Lodge is located in the lovely city of Wanaka. Trish and Baz welcomed us warmly in their fantastic house and gave us a great overview of the town. We spent a fantastic time thanks to their advises and we're glad we could enjoy such a fantastic place.
The view from the Lodge is just bluffing. You get the best of New Zealand in a nutshell.
We spent two days in the Lodge during our honeymoon and we shared great moments.

We had a great three night stay with Trish and Baz who are the perfect hosts. The villa suites are huge, well appointed with beautiful views over Lake Wanaka. Outside there are large tubs to soak in whilst taking in the views! Tin Tub is a relatively new operation and there is one more villa to complete. This did not impact out stay at all however and when the villa is finished, Tin Tub would be an excellent candidate for Mr and Mrs Smith as there is no comparable accommodation in Wanaka at non excessive prices. Trish's breakfast is delicious whilst Baz is full of suggestions and more than happy to book restaurants or activities for you. All in all a fantastic stay! Hope to see you again. James and Hannah.

We stayed at the Tin Tub for 2 nights of our recent honeymoon in NZ and can't recommend it highly enough.
The lodge itself is secluded with great views over the town and lake (and is especially well positioned for evening sunset views) but has impressive amenities for boutique accommodation (pool, gym, bikes to borrow, washing facilities, etc). The self contained room we stayed in was newly completed and furnished to a very high standard.
Also, the level of personal service provided by Barry and Trish really made the experience for us. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the only issue we had was trying to prioritise between all the activities available during our stay.
Next time we are in Wanaka we will certianly be returning to the Tin Tub!

We stayed at the Tin Tub for 3 nights in January and enjoyed every minute. The house is stunning, as are the views over Lake Wanaka. Trish and Barry were great hosts and made us feel very welcome and relaxed from the moment we drove up to the lodge, which is in one of the most secluded, elevated and quiet locations in Wanaka - despite being a 25 mins walk or 5 mins drive to the lakefront restuarants and coffee bars. There are also laundry facilities available (with state of the art washer and dryer). Watch out for Trish's home baking as you may need to do some serious climing or walking to walk off the calories. Real luxury experience all round. Try and visit Cinema Paridiso on the back-streets of Wanaka if you get time.

Room Tip: Book one of the luxury suites if you can afford it. We got a sneak preview of them as they were bein...
