Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful! Cozy. Lovely. We stayed one night in November and wish we could’ve stayed more. The view from the ecoscape is amazing. Watched an incredible sunset from the room and walking down to the warf. In November there were some lupins around. The hot tub is magic. We soaked under the stars, wonderful. So lovely sitting by the big window amongst the views. The space is super clean and well appointed. Staff was super friendly and helpful with check-in. The restaurant looked and smelled wonderful, we came in too late and when you needed a reservation. I would try it if we ever make our way back!

As the complex comes into view from the road we were greeted with an embankment of struggling shrubs and plants with lots of plastic protectors dangling around them. Bit of TLC needed. Car parking for the echo/scape unit is fine but the steps up to the building are dangerous as is the deep hole full of alkathene pipes . An hour with some flat schist rocks would be much safer. A shelf in the bathroom would a great addition as it would save putting the toilet bag on the floor next to the toilet. The projector above the bed works if you can navigate the instructions. Not so exciting in an echo house lying in bed looking at lots of wires and a red light above you. The view out the front window is outstanding.

Sorry we've only just seen this review, thanks for taking the time to leave it. We have been working hard at improving our site while quite tightly staffed. The embankment mentioned as been mulched with bark chip and the protectors are in place to protect the plants while they grow, they are still new. We will review the access to the front EcoScape from the parking area. There is a cupboard under the sink in the bathroom, but we'll see how we can improve storage options. We have tidied the projector wires as best we can, we'll see if we can cover the red light in a way that enables the projector to still work. The instructions in the the room for the projector were made as clear as possible but we'll have a look and see if we can improve them. Thank you for coming to stay and for the feedback.

This stay did not disappoint! Such an amazing Lux space with even better food!! So close to so much walking and peace. An amazing adventure outside Queenstown. The project was so much fun once we watched the sun go down over the mountains.

After travelling for 5 days at a quick pace, it was great to spend our last night here. We were so glad to relax on the bed and just take in the fantastic view and the serenity. Dinner next store at Kinloch was delicious. They were able to deal with my wife's dietary requirements without an issue and use all local produce. After dinner we went for a walk, before putting down the blind which turns in to projector screen. Next morning they served a very tasty breakfast to our room, which is included. If you are thinking of staying here, don't delay, because it books out quickly.

Wow, wow, wow. This place is seriously special. If you are thinking about booking this place and not quite sure, all I can say is DO IT!! It is SO worth it - our stay at Ecoscapes exceeded all expectations in every way possible. The cabin is as you can imagine, a wonderfully appointed space with good amenities and obviously the view..THE VIEW never gets old. What is really magic about this place is that although there are 2 cabins, the lodge and the cafe/restaurant place, when you are in the cabin you genuinely feel like you are in the middle of nowhere with nothing and nobody else around. The architecture and design of the cabins is magical to have curated such a space. The gardens around the property add to its magic, from the small foot bridge with the veggie gardens around to Holly and Wilbert the dogs milling around the property (they also give the best cuddles if you like dogs!) - I cant explain how magical this place is. Not only the landscapes and the lodge itself but the staff and people that work there are the cherry on the cake. Lou the chef whipping up some deliciousssss food - its such a treat to be in the middle of nowhere but the food quality is amazing and is such a treat (the creme brulee is YUM!). Ben who is the front of house (and no doubt wears 100 other hats!) is super friendly, welcoming and always had a wonderful demeanor about him even when things were super busy he would take the time out to talk or provide recommendations and genuinely connect with you. My partner and I were lucky enough to have time to speak at length with the owners and also Lou and Ben and you can see why people choose to live out there - they are such genuine, wonderful people who really care about delivering a well curated, authentic and special experience. The area of Kinloch itself is just STUNNING - I strongly recommend going for a walk around the lake and you will stumble on beautiful bays where you can sit and take in the lake and mountain views from another perspective. We were recommended Ecoscapes from a friend that stayed here, and I have been raving about it to anybody that will listen since we got back. Its a special, special place and I have never experienced peace and tranquility like it - a true opportunity to unwind and immerse yourself in nature and disconnect. I will be back for sure - thank you to Toni, John, Ben, Lou and all the other people who make Ecoscapes what it is. I will always remember my 30th Birthday as the best one yet.

The best breakfast I’ve had in all of New Zealand, and we’re from Melbourne so we are pretty serious about our brunch 😂 The property was absolutely stunning and the hosts were very friendly! The Netflix projector was a lovely touch. The view out of the large glass in front of the bed was something out of a postcard. It was incredible to watch the colours near the lake and the mountains change through the day, then to look at the stars. Special shout-out to Molly the dog, the most adorable assistant to the owners. We’ll definitely be back here!

Across the lake from Glenorchy and close to several popular walking tracks including the Routeburn the Kinloch lodge and EcoScape accomodation provides a great launching or landing spot. The highlight of the accomodation for us was the huge window that framed the lake and the mountains, we left the blind up and enjoyed spectacular sun rise views with the change of light. The room was relaxing, the big bed was comfortable and the shower great. Outside seating, spa pool and tea and coffee making facilities included. The accompanying lodge has a restaurant. Our hosts went above and beyond to make our stay memorable, thank you.

This was our third stay at Ecoscapes - the first in winter. The units aregreat with an amazing tranquil view that changes with the weather. We were 2 couples (the only guests) and as the restaurant was closed for dinner our hosts insisted on us eating our meal in our rooms on our knees. Last time we were at least allowed to eat around a table together in the empty restaurant - a small compromise which would have made a big difference to our stay. Disappointing!

Toni and John looked after us from the first call to book through to the exit. Nothing was too difficult to manage. We had the most amazing vegan food delivered to our room, a beautiful breakfast made with vegan yoghurt. The view was awesome, we lay in bed and relaxed, didn’t need TV the view constantly changing sky and the views of the river delta changing throughout the day into dusk were spectacular. This place is a hidden gem and if you are pausing thinking about booking. Book it! Truely grateful for the opportunity to experience this wonderful place and the humble beautiful owners and hospitality we experienced.
