We spent 2 nights at Lochmara Lodge last month. We enjoyed great service, great food and lots to do and look at. While we felt that the beds could have been slightly more comfortable, this is a very minor complaint and one that would not stop me returning.

Stayed: February 2016, travelled with family

We stayed two nights at Lochmara lodge and enjoyed most of the time! Very peaceful atmosphere and it was a relaxing time. Exploring the property and searching to find interesting sculptures, kayaking , jumping into the water, meeting friendly animals from marine life to native birds and farm animals.Especially, feeding sting rays was very impressive to us, also dinner was wonderful. We won't forget the taste of perfect rib eye steaks! Only the massage that we booked at Lochmara lodge was dissappointment to us, but the rest of the time we had great experiences!

Stayed: March 2016

I booked a day cruise on the Interislander ferry, Art and discovery, which was a day trip to Lochmara Lodge. I did not know about this place until then and I want to go back and stay. A beautiful place, perfect for a "get away from it all"weekend. The staff were lovely, the food at the Cafe yummy and the walk ways and hand feeding sting rays great.

Choose Lochmara! You will enjoy it.

The staff here is very friendly, unpretentious, and capable. They all seem to wear several hats and enjoy helping to make Lochmara run smoothly.

The lodge is a great place to relax with lots of options from lazing in a hammock, to walking their nature trails, to using a free kayak, to accessing the Queen Charlotte Track for a real hike. (It is well worth the effort to hike to the high overlook just off the QC Track. Ask for directions from reception.)

I had two good massages while there. Highly recommend this.

The property has a funky vibe, thanks to the art located all about. This meshes with the laid back attitude of the staff. Laid back about formalities, but not about guest satisfaction.

We chose a room on the top level. These are newer, and I think have a better view. The room and furnishings were utilitarian and fine. The very ample covered deck with table and chairs was a huge plus. We spent a lot of time out there, reading and bird watching.

The food was very good. They had someone talented in charge in the kitchen. The wine selection left something to be desired, but it was okay.

From the moment we arrived the staff went the extra mile and made us feel so welcome and special. The restaurant food is delicious, the grounds are such fun and interesting with so much to see. We stayed in the top rooms and sat on our deck, relaxed and enjoyed the sound views. We will be back.

Room Tip: The best rooms are 12&14 bright and more quiet then the lower area. Rooms 8.9.10.11 are also great .
