We absolutely loved the Wilderness Lodge. The only 'complaint' is that it is overpriced. I'm not really happy stating this as everybody there and everything was so wonderful and they deserve lots and lots of customers. It is not because there was something wrong with what we got, but it is a fact that the price can't be justified. Not justified in terms of the room, the food or the facilities. All this was actually relatively basic, very nice though.
Having said that I quite enjoyed that everything was indeed in line with the eco image (although it was not in a super cool, eco glam way!! It wasn't terribly trendy but straight forward, honest, genuine). Dinner was plentiful but not exaggerated same goes for breakfast. It is refreshing to see a consciousness around waste and so forth. I really liked that. The facilities as such are equally subtle. There is no pool, no gym - actually not a lot but an incredibly lovely nature to go and investigate as well as feeding and patting the sheep and going on interesting walks. We stayed in several 5 star hotels on our tour of New Zealand but none came close to this price wise, not remotely. And is that really fair? On the other hand this was an unforgettable place and a wonderful warm experience, which will not be forgotten.
