Truly fabulous- exceeded our expectations!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 May 2024via mobile
We hoped for a special getaway for our 25th anniversary and this place exceeded our expectations.
Our villa was private, luxurious and so cosy during our winter trip. The lodge was impressive- amazing restaurant, hot tub and sauna with views, day spa and wonderful winery. But the service was next level. The friendliest and most considerate staff. Made our stay so special:
Date of stay: May 2024
Room Tip: May is super quiet- in our opinion, a great me to visit!
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

    Beautiful setting. Very friendly staff. Food was fantastic. We were only there for one night. I wish we could have stayed and had a tour of the vineyard. We drove in from mt cook. The drive was amazing. The change of scenery was very interesting.

    I had a wonderful morning at the spa. Stacey was brilliant, best massage and facial I have had. I was completely relaxed and walked out floating. I did not feel rushed at all to get changed afterwards. The area around the spa is so tranquil, you relax before setting foot through the door.

    Room tip: It maybe pricey but this isn't just a massage, it is an entire experience of being relaxed head to toe and floating out feeling like a queen

    The lodge and the facilities were amazing. Staff was helpful and friendly. Restaurant had great food and better value than most you would find in Queenstown. Do not miss out on the hot tub, private cinema, free wine tasting and bike rides. The wines are all from gibbston valley vineyards but they are all so amazing you won't feel like you're missing out on other vineyards or regions.

    Fabulous dinner at The Lodge. The atmosphere is relatively quiet as there isn’t a lot of indoor seating available. Entree, main, side and dessert options available with the option to do a wine pairing. We loved the flavors and the focaccia was the best I’ve ever had.
