A simply divine lodge that caters to all guests needs & wants. Felix has thought of everything you might need in the stylish & personalised guest lodges with breath taking views, privacy, & comfort. The meals are mouth watering creations of sublime fine dining by chef Ryan and the communal dinning table creates a wonderful fellowship to share your experiences during the day. Keeley the resident lodge dog is a delightful presence as she might nudge you for a pat & scratch around her ears.

Stayed: April 2016

We just returned to Owen River Lodge for our second visit and again it was a terrific experience.
Felix and his team's hospitality is first class. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are very well appointed and the lodge itself is set up perfectly for guests. The food was exceptional and the wine list very well selected.
For the fly fishermen it is everything you would want and more. All the gear (rods, reels, lines, waders, boots) is top shelf & the guides are experienced pros who put you on fish as well as being great company for a day on the river. The many rivers that are accessible in the area are world class. We are far from experienced fly fishing anglers but again we landed very nice wild brown trout on this trip. I would highly recommend Owen River Lodge and will be coming back for sure.

This was our first visit to Felix's Owen River Lodge. A great location on the Owen River. The rooms are very comfortable and well insulated, keeping quite cosy overnight. The three staff on this visit were Lilly, Jo and Ryan. Jo and Ryan are the chefs, and the food is excellent. The guided fishing was great, albeit not producing a 10lb brown, but you fish in absolute magic country and rivers.
Definitely worth a return visit.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same and overlook the river.

Owen River Lodge was my first opportunity to visit New Zealand, and the trip was exceptional! The accommodations were fantastic and extremely comfortable. The food was delightful, and I waited each evening with excitement to find out what delicacies were on offer for dinner.

The setting of the lodge is wonderful with "postcard picture" views available from each room. How can I forget the fishing? I can't!! The brown trout fishing was world class, and my guide worked as hard as all the staff at the lodge to make sure my trip was a successful fishing trip.

Felix and staff pay attention to the details, and go out of their way to ensure that guests of the Owen River Lodge are taken care of. This is what makes Owen River Lodge such an exceptional trip! I thoroughly enjoyed my 6 nights and 5 days fishing, and I certainly plan on being a repeat visitor!!

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms!!
