“Super bed & breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2011

This is a fantastic bed and breakfast in a stunning location. Our room was beautifully decorated, spacious and we had our best night’s sleep while in NZ. The views to the mountain ranges are breathtaking. The breakfast really is a gourmet delight and it was great to be able to choose what we wanted from the menu. Scrambled eggs and muffins were so good I had to ask for the recipes. Paul & Berny are delightful hosts, full of local knowledge and great suggestions for restaurants and things to do. We should have stayed longer and will do on our next trip to Wanaka.

We have been there only for one night, unfortunately... The owners are sweet and very helpful, making you feel very at ease, like you are at home.
Our room was next to the living room area, but that was not a problem, it wasn't noisy and the bed was so comfy that you fall asleep shortly you get into it.
Pity that it was so cold that we haven't had the courage to go to the exterior SPA tub, but we stayed at the living room seeing a movie on the dvd.
You can find plenty of information about Wanaka in some files over the coffee table in the living room, with nicest places to eat and the plenty of tracks for a little (or a big) walk.
The breakfast was the superb, all handmade by the owner and so delicious that you won't stop eating! :)
And if you need any advice about what to do our where to go, don't miss asking to Paul or Bernie, they most surely help you out!
If I'll go back to Wanaka one day, I already know where to stay...

Maple Lodge is a beautifully designed building set amongst a lots of trees and landscaped grounds. Our hosts Paul and Bernie were very welcoming and showed us to a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the garden. The room was very well appointed with high quality fittings and furnishings. We had a lovely sleep that night and it was a real pleasure to come down to breakfast and enjoy their lovely home made food! I can highly recommend their wonderful homemade jam...yum! My only regret is that we could only stay one night.

I highly recommend this Maple Lodge, it was everything we expected and more. It is a really quiet and special place to escape to and they even have a very cute wee dog who is allowed to visit if you want him to.

Maple Lodge was just outside Wanake and better for it,total peace.Berney and Paul were excelent hosts with plenty of advice when requested Pauls breakfasts where to die for.
We took their advice and went on 'a river journey , by jet boat,whilst the weather was mixed the journey made up for it. The toy and transport meuseum is a must ,especially if you are a senior and want to see all the toys you used to play with and the Puzzle house is worth a visit.
Many thanks to both of them.

Rooms were depicted on their website to be larger than they were. Disappointing that breakfast was only served in the dining room and not in our room.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We are disappointed that you did not give us the opportunity to address your comments during your stay with us. You were also kind enough to complete a feedback form and did not raise either of these points on it. On the contrary, you said that we had met your expectations and that you would recommend us to other travellers.

We believe the pictures on our website are a true representation of our suites and have been taken with a standard camera with no distortions applied. We did have larger, Premium rooms available on the dates of your stay but you did not choose to book one of these.

With regard to breakfast service, we offer a breakfast menu that includes continental and a range of freshly prepared, cooked to order, hot options that are served in the dining room. If you had asked to have breakfast in your room we would have done our utmost to accommodate your request.

We hope you enjoyed the remainder of your trip in New Zealand.

We travelled around NZ on our honeymoon and The Maple Lodge was without any doubt one of the best accomodation, combining welcoming hosts that made us feel at home together with superb rooms with all comforts and top quality bedding. Paul and Bernadette offered us a glass of wine at our arrival and in the morning tey prepared a wonderful breakfast with delicious pancakes and home-made muffins that were also offered at our departure. Nothing to say, if you pass from Wanaka, you have to visit them!
