I booked The Linden Suite at Lime Tree Lodge for a stop over in Wanaka. My husband grumbled as we drove down the autumn tree lined driveway saying 'why did you book a place like this - you know I prefer hotels'. That was the last grumble I heard for the duration of our stay. We both loved this place...

I am long overdue in this review. My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Lime Tree Lodge in December. The husband and wife who run this facility are some of the nicest people we have ever encountered, ensuring that their guests were comfortable and well cared for.

This is a nice property, run by a very social couple. Guests are encouraged to mingle over happy hour and breakfast, which I enjoyed, except the hostess is quite overbearing and so this kind of discussion doesn't happen as much as it could. It is also quite a bit out of town, so you have to drive. Unrelated to the...

Pauline and John are wonderful hosts with a great story to share about their high station. I quite enjoyed meeting them and learning about owning and operating a high station as wool is such an important part of the New Zealand exports and economy. The lodge has a small number of rooms each with a patio. The room I had...
