Welcome to Hopewell, an award winning self-catering lodge set in a superb, inspiring natural location on the water's edge of the magnificent Kenepuru Sound, Marlborough Sounds.Hopewell is a small and unique backpacker lodge that seems more like a luxury retreat. Choose from doubles, twins, triples and family rooms, all beds are made up with quality linen and duvets. Some have private bathrooms and most have sea views and a deck. There are rowboats and equipment for fishing, double and single kayaks, mountain bikes, SUP boards, swimming beaches, bush walks, sailing and boating trips available. Or you can relax in the hot spa pool, expansive gardens and hammocks. And while Hopewell is primarily a self-catering lodge, Lynley and Mike offer great coffees, homebaking and gourmet pizzas. There is a fully-equipped guest kitchen, luxurious lounge with logfire and many dining areas indoors and out.

Stayed with our 3 kids & my parents for 3 nights & we had a wonderful time. The rooms are clean and beds comfortable. The hot tub is a real treat. The equipment is all well maintained and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. All the staff were warm and welcoming.
