Comfortable, clean, luxurious. Advice and humour from the staff helped make this trip memorable. We were lucky with the weather, but nevertheless a gem. Guidance helped us make the most of our trip with visits to Ulva Island, a kiwi experience and walk from Port William.

Recently refurbished bathroom and internal access to the lodge. Lovely beds but the best feature is the view of Halfmoon Bay. Fabulous. If...

Stewart Island is a wonderful place to go we only stayed one night but two would have been better. Ulva Island is a must. This hotel definitely improved our experience. The rooms all face the same direction overlooking the bay.
