Maple Lodge is an exceptional hotel. We could not fault it in any way, the proprietors are friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was superb and well presented. The room was comfortable and very well equipped. The location is quiet and very convenient being located just off the state highway into Wanaka. The rooms have balconies or patios and give excellent views of the surrounding area. There is plenty of parking with easy access. We would certainly stay at Maple Lodge again.

Very pleasant couple who bent over backwards to make our stay a great one. Fabulous home cooked breakfast and lots of advice on where to eat and what to see while in the area. Very comfortable bed, quiet relaxing place, but close to airport and town. Nice leafy garden to sit out in. Quite pricey but the little touches make the difference.

Heading South towards Queenstown, we stopped over for a one night stay. The first thing to note is that if you're looking for a hotel with spectacuar views, this is not the place for you. It's nowhere near the lake but is set off the main road in its own grounds. It is a peaceful location and the property is well appointed with an attractive interior. The rooms are very nicely furnished using high quality materials. Strangely the room had no TV, no fridge, no iron/ironing board but this didn't bother us. The host was very friendly and knowledgeable and cooked an excellent breakfast. A lot of care, attention and expense has gone into the property's 'green' credentials as explained in the information pack we found in our room. Overall a pleasant experience.

This property is a purpose built lodge set just outside Wanaka off the main road down to Queenstown, and near the airport. The setting is beautiful, overlooked by mountains and surrounded by hundreds of infant maple trees that one day will be spectacular. The lodge facilities are first class with nothing spared when it comes to attention to detail.
The hosts are welcoming and friendly with a huge knowledge of the local area. The unofficial doggy host is also friendly and although not officially allowed into the main lodge, is very keen to be welcoming too.
Breakfasts are great, with generally a choice of dishes. There is a hotpool in the grounds and at night the clear and unobstructed views lends itself perfectly to admiring the stunning southern night sky. We had 3 very relaxing days here, and look forward to returning one day.

Berny and Paul made us very welcome with afternoon tea and delicious muffins on arrival. Exceptionally clean and excellent food and could not have been made more welcome.Lovely hot tub in grounds. Would thoroughly recommend Maple lodge and if returning to New Zealand would certainly stay again.

In a word: amazing. Berny and Paul provide the best service you could ever imagine, AND there's a hot tub :)

We stopped unexpectedly at Maple Lodge in January this year and had a most enjoyable stay with Paul and Bernadette. Their lodge is just beautiful and the landscaped gardens looking out over the mountains give a spectacular backdrop to the rooms. Paul's home-cooked breakfast was delicious and we thoroughly recommend Maple Lodge to anyone wanting a comfortable, relaxed retreat. Look forward to getting back for a winter break.
