This was my favourite hotel in New Zealand that we stayed in! The rooms in the lodge are very spacious, comfortable and well equipped with nice tea and coffee. The lodge is also a very short walk from the centre of the township. The staff are very helpful, with lots of suggestions for things to do whilst you’re visiting Stewart Island. They were also kind enough to help us with our bags when going to and from the ferry, as the lodge is up a short, but fairly steep hill. There are several bush walks and hikes you can do nearby and the view of the bay from your room is fantastic. I really can’t recommend staying here highly enough!

My husband and I had an amazing stay. The rooms are great and the view is fabulous. I would improve the breakfast and it should be noted that there is no AC. For us is 10 out of 10 and we will be back again. It was unforgettable stay. Looking forward to be back.

Room tip: No AC. Bring your own breakfast items and prepare it yourself. There is a full equipped kitchen. No AC.

Amazing location!! Very helpful staff who make sure that you have everything you need. The rooms are very comfortable and have the most incredible views. Great place to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening - we fed some fruit to the parrots who frequented the nearby trees.
Breakfast was good and there is a guest laundry that you can use.

Room tip: Good walks from your door, easy walk down into the "main" street, the electric bikes are worth hiring for half a day (that is all you need).

We weren’t expecting much but were really impressed with the property.
Our room was huge, spotless and very well equipped. Such a comfy bed!
Breakfast was continental but was excellent.
The view from the terrace was amazing.
Only minor complaint would be the rather transient staff and the resultant lack of personal touch.

From when we stepped foot off the ferry, Julie (our host) was waiting to greet us with a smile. She gave us a quick tour around the town, giving us a few suggestions for dinner and if the weather turned. Julie was one huge factor that made our romantic getaway, that much more special. The lodge was absolutely beautiful and immaculate and the views were remarakable. We will definitely be returning to Stewart Island Lodge and can only hope that Julie is there for our next visit!

Room tip: The hill isn't as hard as it looks!
