Set in a spectacular setting on the lakefront opposite Glenorchy township between the Routeburn and Greenstone tracks, a stay at Kinloch Lodge is a highlight of any holiday. With a variety of room types More from shared dorms to private doubles, there's something for everyone. There's a cosy restaurant on site, hot tub with a view, bikes and fishing rods for hire, kayak trips in the summer and a TV room for those looking to relax. For those wishing to self-cater we have a communal kitchen, BBQ facilities and inside and outdoor seating. Kinloch is a haven for walkers, fishermen and people who want to feel close to their natural environment. There are many activities in the area which we are happy to help organise, we offer track transport and a boat between Glenorchy and Kinloch; we can arrange transport for those without a car. Less
