We stayed here in January 2013 as part of our honeymoon in NZ. We travelled to some amazing places in NZ, but the one place that we loved best of all was No Road Inn. We stayed for just one night whilst trekking the Queen Charlotte, but we could easily have stayed for a month!

The setting is great, on the shore of the water and right in the bush. It is so peaceful and soothing there. The rooms are HUGE and 5 star quality, no kidding. Our room was in the corner, with a great balcony area with hammocks, plus a superb bathroom with Eco shower (hot!) and a bathtub with a one way mirror looking out into the bush.

The best of all was the hot tub, tucked away in the bush by the side of the house.

The hosts were excellent, really nice people and just the right balance of hospitality and friendliness, whilst still respecting your space and privacy. We really felt that this must be the sort of deluxe getaway that film stars opt for when they want to be somewhere private and peaceful but still get pampered like royalty.

Special mention to the excellent cooking - Gary really is a master chef and we had our best meal of the honeymoon sitting on the balcony watching the sunset and listening to the water and drinking delicious local wines. If we had a time travel machine, this is where we would return to every few months!

We are from Russia and Gary even had some interesting information and newspaper clippings on a russian ship that sank in the sounds in the 1980s in mysterious circumstances.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked good but the upstairs room in the corner (our room) was best of all

My husband and I stayed at The No Road Inn at the end of October and loved every minute - owners Barb and Gary made us feel very welcome and cooked a spectacular 5 course meal accompanied by great wine. Our room was very spacious with a beautiful view plus a large bath which was perfect after a " day on the track" - highly recommended!

Great food and location and wonderful hosts. The rooms have a magical view and are very luxurious. The hot tub is a treat for those weary legs after the first day on the track! Not much more i can say....

Luxurious room (we booked the Queen Charlotte suite) - claw foot bath with a one way window so you can look out at the fab scenery while taking a bath, large balcony facing the Sound with two comfortable hammocks, wonderfully soft mattress, cook-your-own breakfast so you can decide when you want to wake up. And they have this wonderful hot tub in the private garden - perfect for a post walk soak! Home style dinner was fab as well.

The only minus? We missed the grilled paua Gary cooked for us as a pre-dinner snack as we left for dinner too early! We hope to be back for another wonderful stay in future.

My girl friend and I really enjoyed staying at No road Inn. There's not much to say as everything was perfect, all details taken care at the highest. no road inn offers luxury though pleasantly understated rooms, spacious, full of light, with great sea view. Barbara and Gary put a lot of efforts to create their own paradise. Food was very good in quality and abundant... We felt No road Inn worthy every cents we spent and would definitively recommend to anyone looking for an exclusive kiwi home staying experience.
The location is magic, queen Charlotte sounds is incredibly beautiful and the Inn made our trekking memorable. Thanks!

Room Tip: Choose the corner room with large bathroom window on the forest
