Best location in Queen Charlotte Sound. Stunning views from a beautiful property. We loved our bedroom and the hot tub.
We felt that the property should be described as a home stay rather than a b&b. We ordered the optional dinner and found ourselves sharing it with the owners which we did not expect. Also breakfast was communal which was fine but again the owners felt the need to join in the guests’ conversation. The suite we had was beautiful but functional. For the price we would have expected more of the little things you find in a top quality establishment e.g. fruit bowl, flowers, chocolates. The service could also be more customer focused e.g. taking the lid off the hot tub for us and asking us our wine preference.
From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, this place is superb. The hosts Susie and Martin are so kind and friendly and their homestay is stunning. Such a great location with amazing views of Queen Charlotte Sound.
There are not enough superlatives can be used. The lodge is an a beautiful location with an amazing view, whatever time of the day; the one view I was not told about and discovered by accident, was the Southern Hemisphere night sky; with very little light pollution, the sky just li up. I was lucky enough to have the lodge to myself the first night and the owners made me feel very welcome. I cannot praise this lovely place enough.
The view was exceptional. Best of anywhere we stayed in 3.5 weeks in New Zealand, probably. Great service too - we had cooked breakfast each morning and a delicious 3 course dinner cooked by our hosts on our first night.
Our stay was fantastic, from the warm welcome as we arrived to the hospitality offered during our stay and left feeling like family not guests. Susie and Martin are wonderful hosts, the time we spent there flew by, with lovely conversation and flowing wine, we couldn’t ask for anything more. We booked for breakfast and ended up having dinner both nights, the food was outstanding and 3 courses was plenty, including nibbles before dinner with excellent wine throughout the meal. We would highly recommend staying for the hospitality, the high quality of the lodge and the breathtaking scenery, a perfect place to relax and unwind. Next time we are nearby, we wouldn’t hesitate to stay again. Thanks Graham and Aimee.
