Big thanks to Tish and Murray for making us feel so welcome the moment we arrived. Though we only spent a few days, we absolutely loved our time at the lodge! The breakfasts were to die for - thanks Tish! The views from our room and from the breakfast table were incredible. Rarely do we go back home (NZ) and actually feel like we've had a holiday, but these two days were a bit of a "get away" for us, and it was well worth the two days of complete relaxation!

In a nutshell, fabulous. Tish is a third generation hospitality expert and Murray is the ultimate travel guide. On top of that, everything about Evergreen is wonderful. Our room was huge, incredibly comfortable and with million dollar views. Simply breathtaking. The living room and dining rooms have the same view and there is a beautiful outdoor patio with a fireplace. There is a small exercise room with excellent equipment plus two full sets of golf clubs available to the guests. There is also a sauna which, dumb me, we did not use. We were the only guests (just between peak periods) so we were really treated like family. Tish's breakfasts were delicious and as the only guests we had a ton of fun chatting with her for the first hour every morning of our four night stay. Our room had a small refrigerator with a nice selection of beverages and in the living room there is wine available...at your pleasure.

Evergreen is a few minutes outside of town and getting down the steep driveway is a bit of a challenge but once you get through the front door and the views explode in your face you will be very happy you found Evergreen.

Our stay was at the end of a two week NZ trip hopping from place to place for no more than two nights so ending it this way was perfect.

Superb in every way from the stunning views to the sumptious rooms and the amazing hosts, Murray and Tish, for whom nothing was too much trouble. We did not want to leave and will definitely return. A real gem and somewhere we will never forget. Thank you Murray and Tish for allowing us to stay in your beautiful creation.

Room Tip: Room 1 is huge with a stunning room of the lake and mountains.

What more can one say. We had a 6.20am start on Christmas Day and Tish got up to cook breakfast and make sandwiches (in case we got hungry!). Murray and Tish are Hosts of the first order. Great restaurant recommendations, nothing is too much effort. Beautiful rooms. If you have never tried New Zealand Lodges do. If you can start at Evergreen Lodge.

This was our first trip to New Zealand and we had already experienced several other lodges when we arrived at Evergreen. We had been thoroughly impressed at all the previous lodges as they had their own individual characters. But Evergreen raised the bar even higher from the moment Tish and Murray welcomed us into their magnificent home. The views from our bedroom and the lounge were simply spectacular. Nothing was too much trouble for them and their hospitality exuded a genuine warmth, which was unforgettable. Their restaurant recommendations "hit the spot" and the combination of Tish's wonderful breakfasts, coupled with Murray's advice for the adventures ahead was a great start to the day. If you are anywhere near Queenstown and looking for some unashamed luxury, Evergreen Lodge is the place for you.

Words cannot begin to do justice to the most superb accommodation imaginable. Tish's breakfasts are perfection. Tish and Murray treat guests like royalty and could not have been more helpful, engaging, good humored or gracious. Bravo! The rare end lot location with the lake/ mountain view complements Tish and Murray's unsurpassed attention to every detail. We even got to launder our clothes while relaxing In our spacious room. Can you tell we loved everything about Evergreen Lodge?

Room Tip: Tahi is a fabulous, spacious, quiet room.
