I booked this accommodation not knowing what to expect, so you can imagine my surprise when I found the perfect place to stay on the island. The views from the terrace are breathtaking, and the rooms are really well appointed, with comfortable bedrooms, a walks in wardrobe, and a full sized wet room with a shower and a bath. The staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was more than sufficient to start the day, and you basically have the run of the house with access to tea and coffee, and fresh milk from the fridge if you wish. There is also a small laundry, with ironing facilities and drying room, again, for residents use. Be prepared for a visit from the local popular of Keas; who like fresh fruit if you leave it out for them.

Comfortable, clean, luxurious. Advice and humour from the staff helped make this trip memorable. We were lucky with the weather, but nevertheless a gem. Guidance helped us make the most of our trip with visits to Ulva Island, a kiwi experience and walk from Port William.

We stayed here either side of walking the Rakiura Track. We were really well looked after. Very comfortable rooms. Stayed in room 5 on the first night and room 4 on the second. Much preferred room 5. Recently refurbished bathroom and internal access to the lodge. Lovely beds but the best feature is the view of Halfmoon Bay. Fabulous. If I were picky, I'd love to see them put a small espresso machine in the kitchen for really good coffee.

Hi there, thanks for the review. You're right about the view - it's the best feature for sure!
Thanks for your suggestion, we did trial having Nespresso machines in the rooms however found that most guests preferred the ‘Gusto’ single origin Fair Trade, organic coffee and French press system that is available at the lodge. Regards, the team at Stewart Island Lodge.

We could not have enjoyed a better experience on Stewart Island. Lisa made the two of us so welcome and spent time suggesting the highlights she felt we should take advantage of. Our rooms were peaceful and the views stunning. It was great to be greeted with such enthusiasm each morning while we enjoyed our breakfast chatting happily with other guests. Thanks to Lisa and her co workers so much. They could not have done a thing better.

Excellent accommodation, knowledgable staff on walks, wild life and attractions.
Trips can be arranged from the accommodation. Extremely comforable beds.
Good views of the bay and surrounding area.
Pick up from ferry terminal and drop off really useful.
Take the water taxi to Ulva island and take a camera with you, also do the evening trip to see Kiwis in the evening, well worth doing.
