We enjoyed a late lunch at Kinlcoh Lodge on a frost Saturday and couldn't find a thing to complain about. The road to Kinloch is a gravel one and we enjoyed seeing a slightly less polished aspect over the lake and meeting some friendly sheep...More

We had Sunday lunch in a peaceful,serene,setting, away from busy Queenstown. Food was excellent,both the main course and dessert. This place is well worth a visit to escape the maddening crowds of Queenstown.

We only had coffee and carrot cake here - but it was definitely the best carrot cake ever. A lovely place to sit and look at the lake - near plenty of walks. Good range of accommodation in nicely restored historic building.
