We stayed at the Lodge seven years ago when it was in the hands of a private owner, as the lodge is now owned by a corporation the customer experience this time was different, gone were the special touches, such as drinks and canapés early evening in the lounge and freshly baked cookies in your room. We still enjoyed our stay, the rooms are very comfortable and the views are amazing, we just felt that the corporate approach took some of the magic away. Breakfast was limited and included plastic cheese - would have liked a wider choice at breakfast and fresh fruit rather than tinned. Be warned, check out is 10am sharp and you will be expected to leave the Lodge at that time.

We stayed at the Stewart Island Lodge for two nights and absolutely loved it! The rooms were spacious with a very comfortable bed, a full sized wet room, dressing room, free Wi-Fi and pretty much all the luxury you need but the best bit was definitely the view over Half Moon Bay and the Kakas who visited the balcony, just unbeatable! Lisa and her team were lovely hosts and made us feel very welcome and the continental breakfast was delicious. I can only recommend this place and would definitely stay there again if I would ever return to Stewart Island!

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.
