#1 of 12 Speciality lodging in Stewart Island
Travellers' Choice
Stewart Island Lodge is one of New Zealand's southernmost lodges. With expansive views out to sea and over Halfmoon Bay the lodge is ideally situated on a hill just a five minute walk from the village. Its gardens are home to many native birds, including kaka (native parrots), which may be viewed from the terrace. Stewart Island Lodge is an up-market and peaceful B&B, nestled in native bush and provides a stunning setting and a well-appointed place to relax. We are open 1 Aug - 31 May. Stewart Island Lodge is also available at any time for group bookings for up to 12 people (6 bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and BBQ). Subject to availability.

The lodge was a very pleasant surprise, rooms were clean, we had room no 3 with views over the Bay. Bathroom very nice, a shower and a toilet and also clean. Lisa is a super host. Very funny and welcoming. It was a pity she had some days off after that and we didn't see her again. Then we had Nikita who was much more reserved, and quiet. Conversations with her were cordial rather than genuinely. Later we saw her again on the ferry and it was obvious she didn't want to talk to us. But that's fine. Each to their own but if you work in the hospitality you need to be more friendly . But the lodge is great, and you can make your own dinners in the kitchen there at night. Breakfast is great, but if you want eggs, there is a 4 square where you can buy eggs and then you can cook eggs in the kitchen there if you don't want just cereals, toast and fruit for breakfast. They don't do lunches or dinners but you can use the kitchen when you want. By the way, it's like a normal kitchen in a normal house. And they have lots of pots and pans and 2 stoves, also fridge for you to use. The only downside to the lodge is that is has a very steep drive and you can walk to town( 10 minutes) but you also have to walk back( puff puff) or you can get a taxi for $15- which we didn't do. On the plus side it's good if you want to get fit. Overall it's a huge recommendation to go stay in this lodge. We glad we did this for our 40th wedding anniversary.

Room and ensuite were ample, with also a sepate room for luggage and storage, clean and well furnished. We were welcomed by Lisa, who offered helpful advice and assisted us in whatever way we needed help. Breakfast was of good standard, The views were superb. Walking from Oban village one has to climb a steepish road., no problems in general, unless a visitor has trouble with walking. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you, Lisa.

A fantastic destination and great place to stay. The rooms are fantastic and perfect luggage room come walk in wardrobe to get rid of all your luggage and unpack. Enjoyed the large table and delicious breakfasts each morning looking through a postcard like view over the harbour. Many thanks to our host Lisa for sorting out a fantastic kiwi spotting tour that was appropriate for my mother to enjoy and experience kiwi in the wild (thanks for making this happen) If your considering Stewart Island lock this accommodation in, it exceeded our expectations. AAA++ Cheers Robbie & AJ
