We spent 2 nights here and loved every minute of it.
The rooms are clean, warm & cosy and have the most magnificent views.
Lisa and Chris were both really great, helpful, friendly and made us feel like we were staying with friends.
We enjoyed the sun filled deck by day with the visiting birds and at night sitting looking up at more stars than I've ever seen.
The only negative is the steep hill you need to get up to access the lodge, but the peace, tranquility and beauty here is unparalleled. I would love to come back again one day.

Have just returned from a 5 night stay at Stewart Island Lodge. Lisa did an amazing job of making us feel so welcome and backed that up with great advice on what to see and do while we were on the island. She really took an interest in our activities and how to make the most of our 5 days. She booked tours and restaurants for us - nothing was too much trouble. Thanks Lisa.

Room tip: The rooms are all the same - all of them are excellent.

We spent 2 nights at the lodge. Staff were most accommodating from pick up to & from the ferry including our stay. Suggested places to eat, activities & great breakfast. It is a walk up the hill but so worth the view. Rooms are most comfortable with a deck to sit & enjoy the sentry of the bay.

The lodge sits atop a very steep hill with all of the action being at the bottom of the hill. The WIFI did NOT reach our room, but was available in a quite chilly common area. A courtesy ride was offered at 10:30 AM down the hill. One must beg a ride up the hill at night.

Thank you for your review. The wi-fi is normally available in every room and should have reached yours, so we apologise if there was a problem during your visit. The lodge is on a hill which gives it those spectacular views and it is a steep - but short walk. Our guests are offered a courtesy ride when they arrive and when they leave. We appreciate your feedback as we continuously review our service to provide the best experience for our visitors.

From the pick up at the ferry to the breakfast and send off, the staff were very warm and helpful. They have laundry facilities, a drying room, and a nice, large tub after a day of walking. The birdsong and views of Oban town are spectacular.
