Had a really good time here, came straight from Sydney so quite a contrast! Great relaxed atmosphere in the middle of fantastic countryside, a really good base for exploring the southland and down to fiordland. Highly recommended and all the best to Sharon and Mark for 2019.

What a delightful spot ! This BnB is just lovely. The room was spotless, warm and very well appointed. Although it doesn’t have a fridge we were able to put our cold stuff in the main fridge. Sharon and Mark are wonderful hosts. We chose just to have cheese and crackers for dinner out on the terrace. Sharon was very happy to organise plates, glasses , knives etc. The rooms have tea and coffee making facilities.
The location is stunning with pet sheep roaming. Their dog Barkley is a gem. He just loves people. He is an outside dog but he loves to join you on the terrace.
We stayed two nights and will definitely be back as my husband is a keen fly fishing man. The rivers around here are wonderful.
Castle Hill is about 45 mins from Queenstown. Nearest town is Garston which has a pub and a delightful little coffee van with great coffee and muffins. Be mindful to organise food as it is a small drive to get dinner.
A continental breakfast is provided. I like having the option to have cheese, cold cuts and fresh bread. Cereal and yogurt are also provided.
We stayed in the England room with a wonderful claw foot bath and a beautiful bay window.
It is such a nice change to stay in the country side surrounded by mountain ranges. Will definitely come again.

Castle Hill Lodge is situated in beautiful countryside south of Queenstown. It's a great spot to drive to Milford Sound from. Very warmly welcomed and shown to our very comfortable room with sparkling clean en suite. Guests also have the use of a lounge with TV, guide books and DVD's. Superb breakfast set us up for our days sightseeing! Mark and Sharon were happy to share their knowledge of the local area and I would recommend a stay at their lovely B/B

Sharon and Mark are wonderful hosts, providing cups of tea and great breakfasts and good advice on how we could make the most of our time in the south. We also enjoyed their conversation and company, especially over a delicious dinner cooked by Sharon. The room was spotless and equipped with everything we needed, and the guest sitting room was a bonus - a place where we could relax in comfort between trips out. We chose Castle Lodge because it gave easy access to Doubtful Sound and Te Anau and this worked superbly. It's also a great place from which to explore the South and the Catlins, though sadly we didn't have time to do this. All in all, a really lovely B and B run by two extremely nice people - highly recommended.

The lodge was recommended by Stu's fly fishing as I had booked 4 days fishing with him.
I was delighted that he did. Mark and Sharon were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble,my room was very comfortable and dinner with wine included each night was excellent.

As usual great moments in garston with sharon and mark. Contrary to usual impersonal places they will welcome you like one of their own. I go there every year when I go fishing the Mataura and I have never been disappointed.
