We travelling NZ and booking accommodation as we go. My husband desperately wanted to fish and so we decided to find an out of the Lake and splurge on Lodge stay. We found The Lodge at Lake Brunner - and what a find! It is certainly out of the way and sits on it's own accross the lake from the very small town (if you can call it that) of Moana (65 permanent residents). The Lodge itself onlt has 9 rooms. We were the only residents on our first night (Monday). We stayed for two nights and absolutely loved it. It is very peaceful and quiet, although we undestand that during the summer months, especially over the Christmas period, the town of Moana comes alive with the owners of the holiday homes turning up in droves! If you like quiet and great fishing and are prepared to spend a little money this is a great place but going on local knowledge I would suggest staying away from high season.
