I am a bit late in writing this review I know. However, I was posting others and realized I hadn't posted from my trip to New Zealand last year.
This is an extremely nice lodge. It is so comfortable and quiet and the views of Lake Wakatipu are stunning.
The staff is so friendly. The rooms are plush and luxurious.
This is a place to relax and get away. I really enjoyed my stay here - loved the food as well.
At night they have a cocktail hour so you can meet other guests if you desire. I was by myself but still had a lovely time.
I can understand what some of the other reviewers are saying that it can be like a ghost town. It isn't a bustling hotel that's for sure. However, if you are looking to get away from it all and relax and be quiet, this is an extremely good alternative.
