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.

Top quality and impeccably clean, this beautifully decorated lodge has a stunning backdrop of meticulously manicured gardens and the Kaikoura mountain range in the distance. We decided to treat ourselves and stay at luxury accommodation for our wedding anniversary. We were thrilled that Chris & Colin upgraded us to a beautiful, spacious suite! The hosts were there to see to our every need, and we enjoyed chatting with them. I would recommend a stay here - go on, treat yourself!

Hubby and I stayed here for the last two nights. At most five minutes’ drive out of Kaikoura, which most people visit to go whale watching. Beautiful room with a really comfortable bed. Very spacious room and nice bathroom.

We had a lovely breakfast- great bacon and poached eggs. I think there are only six rooms so it makes for quite an intimate environment

Above and beyond service when I left items in the wardrobe- thanks for taking quick action to correct me with my dresses!!

We were lucky enough to have 3 nights here. As soon as we arrived we were met by Chris & Colin, Chris checked us in along with offering us a drink - always welcome. Then Colin took our bags to our upgraded room. Wow, everything about the room was wonderful, the view, the beautifully dressed bed with wonderful linen & the size of the room. Next was the lounge with the room, a 3 piece suite with reclining chairs, my husband was in 7th heaven!!
Colin and Chris are the hosts and the chefs and the food was exquisite. Breakfast of your choice is cooked whilst you enjoy fresh fruit and/or cereal along with freshly made coffee or tea. The evening meals were superb and definitely worth staying in for. We had the crayfish on the last night and Colin showed me how to get all the meat out of the legs. The veg is from their own garden where possible.
The gardens and views are incredible and the Lodge is of a very high standard, but the hospitality of Chris & Colin make it such a wonderful experience

We stayed here for 3 nights in late February and found the accommodations, setting and care and attention of our hosts to be first rate. The place is immaculate with a beautiful garden overlooking the mountains. The location, a short drive into Kaikura, made it a convenient to restaurants and activities in town while outside in country setting. The owners, Chris and Colin couldn’t be friendlier and service oriented. Food first rate.

Everything about this place is wonderful. We felt very welcome from the minute we arrived, more like staying with friends than in a hotel.
Nothing is too much trouble, we asked if they had spinach and Chris popped out to the garden and came back with a handful to go in an omelette.
Food is absolutely fantastic from breakfast to the evening meal we had one night.
Rooms are large and very comfortable.
I would say you need a car when staying here as is a little way out of town but apart from that everything was perfect.

Fyffe country lodge is a quaint, charming country house with impeccable style and comfort. The rooms were beautifully furnished and classy. Beds were comfy and the shower powerful and hot but what really made our stay extra special were our hosts Chris and Colin who were exceptionally friendly, helpful and kind to us. The breakfasts were sumptuous and delicious and we would highly recommend staying there.

It was a surprise to find this lovely hotel outside of Kaikoura along the coast. Very cosy and quiet with a genuine and personal touch on the part of Chris and Colin. One must experience their crayfish meal to understand what Kaikoura has to offer gourmets from Europe. It seemed like a home away from home, including some interesting guests to converse with in the evening.

Beautiful lodge, gardens and views. The owners couldn’t do enough for us. We ate dinner twice and both meals were delicious. We had a free afternoon so we sat in the garden admiring the views with a bottle of local wine.

This lodge is beautiful, and the couple who run it are adorable and want you to have an amazing stay. We arrived late and they put together a cheese plate for us to have, which we enjoyed with a bottle of wine in the garden. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and breakfast was a treat of freshly made food. The couple who own this have been through a devastating earthquake, and then covid closures, yet remain upbeat , positive, and delightful!

My wife and I stayed two nights at The Lodge.
What a great place and wonderful hosts. Chris and Colin are some of the nicest, warmest and loving people we have met travelling around the world for more than 40 years.
The Lodge has 6 rooms and upstairs there is a beautiful very large room, that would be any president worthy.
If you are looking for a great place to be spoiled, then Fyffe Country Lodge is what you are looking for.
Best wishes from Marianne & Jørn from Denmark.
