“A Stay At Tui Lodge Is A Must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Tui Lodge exceeded all our expectations and some. Accommodation is spacious and very clean and the proprietors Ian and Frances make you feel very welcome and really do their best to ensure you get the most from your stay in the area. Breakfast is something else particularly if you like Rhubarb. Lots of fresh fruit mainly from the garden. Also got to try Golden Kiwi’ for the first time. I really cannot recommend Tui Lodge enough. Ideal for anyone.

Room Tip: Any room recomended

I had the pleasure of staying with Ian and Francis for two days with my family over the holiday period. The rooms are immaculate with beautiful on suite showers. Ian and Francis are wonderful hosts not only do they do the best breakfast we have had in the Southern Hemisphere (most of which is grown in their garden) but they are also very knowledgable and helpful in pointing you in the right direction for the local attractions. I couldn't recommend staying here more.

Stayed January 2014

We stayed at Tui Lodge for three days, hosts Ian & Francis were fantastic, loved the home cooked breakfast with fresh fruit & rhubarb straight from the garden.
5 star accommodation & service at a fraction of the price you would expect to pay. Great value !
Ian runs guided trout fishing tours & supplies all the good gear for the novas or experienced fisherman.
My 22 year old son had never tried fly fishing before, but Ian had him catching fish in the first hour !!
Ian, Thanks for your patience & the stress relief.

Hosts made us feel very comfortable. Treated as members of the family yet given our own "space". Great local knowledge and stunning garden. Overall just like being at home but with staff to provide for every need.

We had a wonderful overnight stay with Ian and Francis. They have a very comfortable home and the bedrooms were spacious with King Size beds. The bathroom was also very generous. Ian and Francis were very gracious hosts and made us feel at home. We wished we were able to stay an extra night so that we could have tried a spot of trout fishing. Luckily Ian was able to offer us a taste of some of his trout! Thanks to Francis for a great breakfast and also for forwarding my face wash on to my next port of call.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.
