This is the 3rd year in a row that I have stayed at Lime Tree Lodge and it's the same familiar NZ hospitality, delicious breakfast, evening cheese platter & wine by the log fire that keep drawing me back to this wonderful lodge. The room is luxurious and the facilities are exceptional. The lodge is <10 minutes drive away from... More

We stayed for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. Our travel plans changed due to the weather and they were very amenable to us arriving a day early.

계기 : 업무 출장 (3인 동반) 기간 : 7/15~22 (7일) 후기 : 주인 부부의 너무도 따뜻한 환대에 처음엔 당황했지만, 여유로운 마음에서 대해주시는것을 느끼고부터는 역대 출장중 가장 편안하고 인상적인 여행이 되었다. 추운 지역으로 다니는 출장이었음에도 따뜻한 경험이라고 표현하고 싶다. 개인적으로도 꼭 다시 와보고 싶다. 내년에도 뉴질랜드 일정이 생기길 바라며, 폴린 아줌마의 환대에 다시한번 감사한다. It was very warm and comfortable business... More

What a beautiful luxurious lodge equipped with everything you could possibly need and even more. Lovely warm hospitable Pauline and John are the wonderful hosts and nothing is too much of a problem, from sumptuous breakfasts and pre dinner drinks and nibbles, to suggestions and bookings of activities and dinners, to arranging transport to and from dinner spots.

This lodge deserves more than five stars!! My fiance and I stayed here the day before and the night of our wedding. It was one of the most memorable parts of our trip to New Zealand (after our wedding, of course!). The owners were away, but we could not have asked for better hosts in their place. Lynda and Kate...

Came straight from UK and so a bit jet lagged. The welcome was amazing and personal; nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are lovely, stunning even. There is an amazing lounge/dining room with fire,books, games, TV and DVD. The pool was a bit cool but the hot tub well used. Breakfast was individually cooked to order. As always it... More

By far the most iconic hospitality experience in our 2.5 week tour of the South Island. Located 5-10 mins drive outside Wanaka, the Lodge is situated on a beautiful plot of land with great views of the surrounding mountains. It's a new property so everything is shiny new (opened in 2014 I think). But the reception by the owners- Pauline... More

If you want to go to a beautiful place and feel totally at home and pampered you must stay here. They even offered a r/t ride to town (close by) so we could "enjoy" our evening to the fullest. Pauline and John are the ultimate hosts and the accommodations were super clean and comfy. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
