Excellent old school lodge with incredible views. The food was delicious and the staff were super friendly and lovely. We rode bikes from Twizel then sat in the sun on the deck overlooking the beautiful lake. A fun time.

Thank you for writing Kirsty. It's such a great bike ride from Twizel and on a beautiful day, what could be better than including a stop off here for lunch or coffee on the deck before riding back! It is great to have our lovely staff acknowledged. Thank you and so glad you enjoyed your day. Kind regards Louise

I was very pleased to reach our room at the end of a 92km day on the A2O bike ride. Sadly the sun was gone, but the setting was impressive. The bedroom was small-ish, but the bathroom was huge. We really enjoyed the dinner, bed and breakfast option. The food was lovely, and plentiful.

92kms! Good job! I'm sorry that the sun was gone for you too but we do lose it a bit earlier here as we are under the hill. Correspondingly though I hope you got to catch the sunset on Aoraki and the light on the hills opposite us as the sun sets can be absolutely "gob smacking"too! You were obviously in the outside Huxley wing by your description. It's a good option, being one of the cheaper wings, when doing the Alps2ocean and you have a lot of accommodation to book! Thanks so much for writing. We very much appreciate it. Kind regards Louise

The team here were great! It was our friends birthday but things were delayed due to them having to get medical attention elsewhere and arriving late for dinner. Thanks for making it a very special night for us all. The rooms were very lodgy and totally adequate for our overnight stay on the O2A. The views are to die for! We’ll be back and will stay on your fancy rooms for a treat! Thanks for everything.

Our team will really appreciate you stating that. They are great so on behalf of them all, thank you very much. I'm so glad that everyone enjoyed themselves. Yes, please do come and stay in one of our Upper Temple wing rooms. Come in summer when you can enjoy the late afternoon out on the balcony. It's heaven then! Thanks so much for writing. Kind regards Louise

We stayed here on our A2O ride. Stunning scenery from our bedroom and unit of lake and mountains. A high quality modern lodge in a remote area with restaurant and bar and outdoor area. Units were modern and clean. Helpful staff and great food. Would I stay again. Yes if we were travelling in the area. Not sure about undercover storage for bikes which we didn't require.

Thank you so much for writing this lovely review. We are SO lucky to live with this stunning view in our face every day of the year! We never get sick of it, it is always changing and so may times you just go look up from whatever you are doing and go WOW. Our team will very much appreciate your compliments, especially the housekeeping team that often don't get a mention so thank you from them too. We do have a shed where we can offer undercover storage for bikes if required. I hope you enjoyed the rest of the trail. Kind regards Louise
