Mt Pott is of course one of the many high mountains around Mt Potts lodge. We were there to walk to Mt Sunday where the town Endoras in Lord of The Rings movies was made and filmed. Nothing is left of the scenary they made but the hill and landscape is breathtaking and experiencing the surroundings keeping the films in mind is fascinating. Well worth the day spend on this.

We chose to stay at Mt Potts lodge. The accommodation is not luxery but more than comfortable and enough for people who enjoy walking in the mountains. The varity in the bar is limited but you get a cold beer or a nice wine when you need it. The menu in the restauranr is different. Several interesting and different dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the menu is changing every second day. It is all made of local ingridients and from the bottom, no quick fixes! The chef, Loyd, is young but an experienced cook. The slow cooked lamb with risotto the first evening and the pulled pork burger we enoyed the next were unexpected and tasteful surprises. Well worth the stay alone!

The lodge is managed by Loyd, and while we were there nicely assisted by his mom. He is a nice guy who really want you to have a good time and makes his best to accommodate you!

We popped in for a snack and ended up ordering dinner. Two dishes that hit the spot. We were very inpressed with the skills of the manager/chef. The view was amazing and we really recommend dropping into this lodge.

We stayed at Mt Potts Lodge for two nights on a photo shoot. The location is simply amazing! The accommodation was immaculately clean and perfect for what we needed. The hospitality was excellent! Special mention to the food... the chef, Lloyd, was stellar!! Such a treat to come to a rural lodge that isn’t pretentious and somewhat basic to be blown away by the quality of the food. All freshly prepared onsite using local ingredients. This young man has talent!! We will be back :) Dan & Leonie

The most spectacular view we have seen so far, and the host did a fantastic job, making us an unforgettable meal. The kids even tried the rabbit caserole even through they have rabbits at home...
They liked it.
Thank you!
