Fantastic!

Review of Edgewater Lodge
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 18 Oct 2020
We had a fantastic stay here. The lodge is right on the water, walking distance to the beach. Stunning views of the water from the second story. Our room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious with lots of options. Stella and Jurgen were excellent hosts.
Date of stay: February 2020

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Edgewater and absolutely loved the location, the accommodation, the breakfast and the expert recommendations we received from the owners. We will be back next time we are in Wellington!

Reviewed 19 February 2020

As the picture shows, this hotel is literally across the street (a quiet, pretty street) from the water - a large, gorgeous bay. We had a room that looked out on the water and it was fantastic to wake up in the morning, open the curtains, and there was the sea. The common areas of the hotel were a floor up from our room and had even more expansive views. Our room was very attractive, too, and had everything we needed. Stella, who owns the hotel, and Jurgen, her partner, were fantastic. They gave us lots of ideas for things to do and routes to take, plus they answered every question we had. They made an amazing breakfast, too. The only tiny downside to the lodge is that it is not in the main part of the city, so you have to drive or Lyft/Uber/Cab it in. It's a challenging (but beautiful) drive because of a narrow, windy, steep road up one side and down the other of a hill. But it was such a special place that it was worth it. We loved it.

Room tip: Ask for a view.

The lodge is in a superb location with vast views. Stella and Jurgen made us very welcome with a comfy room which was clean and had all we need. Breakfasts were presented superbly and the food was fresh and beautifully prepared. Well done.

Stella is the best!! And her Edgewater Lodge is pretty wonderful, too. We spent our last night in New Zealand at the Edgewater Lodge. The home is gorgeous, right across the street from the water. Our room had a balcony from which we watched the ferries going past, and at night they are all lit up.The room is beautiful, the bed was great, the linens are top quality, and the en suite bathroom is large.It is all very elegant. Stella does an amazing job with the breakfast, too -- many delicious offerings which she prepares. We left our rental car in Picton so as not to have to deal with it for one day in Wellington. We took a bus from the ferry to the train station, then a taxi to the Edgewater. The next day we used Uber to get around - cheaper than the taxi. I highly recommend a stay at the Edgewater Lodge B&B. It is quiet and not downtown, so having wheels or using Uber is pretty much a must. Stella goes beyond the call of duty to make your stay comfortable.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. What more could a girl want! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay.
We enjoy hosting guests at Edgewater, it is nice to be able to share Edgewater and its views with guests, as one could take it for granted and needs guests like yourself to remind us how lucky we are to live at Karaka Bay.
Stella.

We enjoyed the spacious elevated common rooms and our expansive view of the bay while staying in the very comfortable, well appointed and accessible first level room. Our hostess enhanced our stay by sharing her local knowledge and assisting us with whatever we needed.

Room tip: First level room is easily accessible from one's car
