We booked this hotel coz eye catching form the official website, and found it was the best in town. Since we met the host Stephanie we knew we made completely right choice, her hospitality and helpful which we never experienced in our past B & B stay. Bus stop picked up and drove us to the Mt John cafe by host was impressed us , when we reached the luxury classy artistic decorated lodge room, we found we were in heaven of paradise, the stunning lake view from our room drive us crazy, how much we want to stay as long as we can. So touched by the professional tasty rich breakfast made by Alistair, many small touch so impressed us -- designed furniture , warmth heart welcoming , complimentary wine and coffee shows the passion and insight of the host. The lodge is only one year old and very well maintained, we see it is the new baby of the host and they put lot of effort on it, and we so careful to keep the lodge from dirt and damage, the price tell the luxury and it totally worth, sure we will visit this baby again soon.
