“Great Restaurant and hosts”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Enjoyed a one night stay here so we could catch up with some friends that were also travelling in the area. We had a superb meal in the Restaurant and the hosts were great! we would definitely stay here again if we are travelling through. If not just for the meals. The accommodation is fairly straight forward and comfortable.

My brother and I stayed for one night. The service and hospitality bestowed on us was of a high standard. Kim the owner was extremely helpful with local knowledge of sights and things to do.
The room and beds were extremely comfortable and we could not fault the decor or the amenities.
Congratulations

Great accommodation, nice rooms, but the highlight of the stay was the food and Kim is certainly an amazing chef. The dinner and breakfast were both awesome meals. She knows how to cook! The Hereford beef and venison were both wonderful choices for dinner as were the pancakes and porridge for breakfast. Don't forget to tell them you're dining when checking in - don't assume they will know this.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you also enjoyed dinner, amazing how cycling makes you soooo hungry, especially in the rain and wind!!! Look forward to seeing you again when you are here for some more cycling and to allow me to cook for such an appreciative audience, thank you, Kim

We stayed at Lake Roxburgh Lodge to check out the new Roxburgh Gorge Trail, and start the Clutha Gold Trail. It was perfect, very friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast, the dinner food was great too, it was nice sitting out in the sun to eat.

We visited the Lodge as part of a special treat for my husband's birthday and what a treat it was. I have to admit that I didn't even know it existed even though we travel through Roxburgh often. Wonderful hosts, comfortable accommodation and really superb meals, Phil and Kim went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

Comfortable room, a real rest after cycling the gorge from Alexandra which was much tougher than the rail trail which we rode to Alex. The cream tea was very welcome after all that exertion. Helpful and friendly hosts who gave us good advice for the next leg to Lawrence. Last but not least a very good dinner. A great place to stay, we can definitely recommend.

This lodge is built right beside he Roxburgh Dam and WOW what a location, should not be missed by any traveller coming to NZ (south island) Great walking location peaceful with some of the best food you will get and I have have eaten food from Iceland to Boston. So much to do in this area

Room Tip: Try the Hereford Steak, take a walk along the Dam spend some time looking around and really relax
