We stayed at the Lodge as one stop on a two-week trip through the South Island and it was the nicest place we stayed. The setting is lovely, the owners are extremely helpful, and the rooms quite comfortable. The library is a very relaxing place to hang out. And the shower - always a telling detail after a long day tramping about - was absolutely first rate!
Was it a bit more expensive than the other places we stayed? Sure. But - consider what came with the stay, many of which would have led to additional expense at other places, but which came here with no extra charge (1) Unlimited Internet access (2) use of the laundry (3) Full, cooked breakfast (rated "Best in New Zealand by our hungry 21-year-old son!) (4) Excellent carrot cake, coffee, tea, and beer in the library (5) Spot-on advice from Matt & Chloe (they led us to places that we would not have otherwise found and very much enjoyed).
I only wish we could have stayed there longer.
