“Brilliant Place”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

The lodge is brilliant with views that give you the wow feeling, you stand on the balcony / decking and look out over the harbour and it gives you the feeling of bliss, it's just great. Rooms are newly updated and are perfect with their new smart decor, and with the added bonus of having its own dressing room with fridge and dressing stand, bathrooms are also newly updated and the deep bath a real treat after long days of walking up and down some steep hills, cannot praise it enough. Breakfast is provided in a communal dining room where in the evening if you wish you can go and sit / read or simply watch TV. You can if you wish cook your own evening meal as everything is there for your use, also provided is a complete laundry service of washing machine/dryer. Brilliant place to enjoy your stay on Stewart Island

We decided that we would go to to Stewart Island for one night. We wish that we had gone for longer. The lodge is really a home from home - nothing was too much trouble for the staff. From getting off the ferry to getting back on all our luggage was looked after.The room was perfect, breakfast was just right and we were welcome to use the lodge facilities even after we had checked out. for us northerners two things to beware of: UV - the sun is very strong do not skimp on factor 30+ and watch out for sand-flies; I unwittingly fed them well before applying the mozzie cream.
The views from the Lodge were spectacular and being able to feed wild Kaka was wonderful. The lodge even provided a supply of nuts to hand feed the birds

Room Tip: They are all good

We stayed 1 night at the Stewart Island Lodge when we were shark diving recently. Great place with excellent views and very comfortable and modern facilities and layout. Lisa, who hosted us, was awesome and really took the time to explain what we could do on the Island and made sure everything was what we wanted. Breakfast the next morning was really good too. Highly recommend it to anyone who visits Stewart Island and is looking for an upper end place to stay.

Lisa was so professional, helpful and friendly. The lodge is very well appointed and beautifully clean. Our room overlooking beautiful Half Moon Bay was exceptionally well appointed with the most comfortable beds. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your lodge. Real Journeys can be very proud of their staff and lodge here. Absolutely loved Ulva Island. Thanks again, Lisa.

Room Tip: Our room No. 3 was perfect with unobstructed views over the bay.

Special weekend away for us for a wedding on the island. The staff were extremely helpful and fun. To wake up in the morning and look across the bay is unreal, an absolutely outstanding view, drinks and pre dinner nibbles in the sun on the terrace "fabulous"! We had a wonderful, special time and highly recommend to others, not over priced and very conveniently situated.

Room Tip: We had room 2 and were thrilled!!!

The room was always well serviced by Lisa .Lovely relaxing two day stay.
We had the end room on the right and really enjoyed the seclusion the view from our room was still exceptional

Room Tip: The rooms are all different but the experience is the same
