A very friendly welcome from our hosts Paul & Bernie, who are happy to share their knowledge of the surrounding area and the things you can do, whilst chatting over a glass of wine.
We loved the downstairs space, and could imagine this would be a lovely location to relax during the skiing season, chewing the cud with your fellow guests after a day skiing. The lodge, whilst in a peaceful rural location, which has its plus points, is a bit of a drive out of Wanaka. You need to consider this if you want to eat out in town during the evening, which we like to do without having to consider driving afterwards.
We were allocated an upstairs room which was very well appointed and with a very comfortable bed. Although the room was not enormous, the en suite bathroom had a very good shower, but not the bath I had been expecting.
Exceptional breakfast with plenty of choices, expertly cooked by Paul, albeit I suspect that Bernie had an input with the lovely muffins! We had to make an early start on our last morning with them, and an early breakfast was very willingly accommodated.
