We hadn’t done a lot of research (or training) and the thought the 2 night package sounded like a great idea. The ride was great, very challenging but well worth the effort. The logistics were smooth, and food was good & plentiful. But by far what made the vibe of the place so spectacular was the staff. They’re all so happy. Happy to be at work, proud of the lodge and the trail and just seem to want everyone to enjoy their time there. Great work team we were so very appreciative. You made our weekend.
Everyone was friendly and helpful. There was lots of food which was delicious. Everything was well organised, the shuttles were on time and and our driver told us great stories about the changers within the region. I think the lodge was good value for the money. 2 nights accommodation, 5 meals , 2 long shuttle rides. A pleasure to recommend to others.
Great weekend doing the Timber Trail, 2 nights at the Timber Trail Lodge worked perfectly. Fantastic local knowledge and stories from Rob in the shuttle, Kia Ora Rob! Accommodation is superb, clean and comfortable rooms, great food after a good days MTB riding and a beer or 2 from the bar. Locally owned and operated with great stewardship of local environment and land. Thoroughly recommended!
Fabulous stay at the Lodge. Friendly staff and tasty food. Welcomed with a hearty home made pizza and beverage of choice. The large wood burner in the communal lounge made this a very relaxed place to enjoy other riders company and share our stories. The rooms were very clean and beds comfortable. Our dinner was tasty and a cooked breakfast sent us on our way to complete the trail. We were provided with a packed lunch and plenty of resources were available to repair bikes, dry out our clothes and recharge ebikes. As many of us arrived at the lodge between 3.00 and 4.00, we felt maybe a 6.30 dinner instead of 7.00 would have suited us better. However Im sure others may have preferred the later dinner time. Thankyou Garth for your hospitality. We will definitely be back This has been a highlight in my biking calendar...maybe because I was on my new ebike this time!!!!!…
Our group really enjoyed our time at the lodge. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was excellent and they were able to cater for all dietary options. Great pizzas when we arrived. More than happy to stay again.
