Fabulous Place

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 May 2019
The lodge is in a beautiful location out in the countryside away from the town of Arthur's Pass. It is a peaceful country retreat with wonderful views of the mountains. The common room is cozy and we loved sitting in front of the fireplace having wine, cheese and bread before our dinner. Did I mention dinner? On both nights that we stayed at the Grasmere Lodge, Chef Glen and his wife Tonya prepared delicious meals. After our first dinner, we did not even consider going anywhere else for dinner on our second night. Terrific meals were prepared both nights. Looking out at the countryside and mountains during breakfast was the perfect way to start the day. When we told Glen that we were going to be hiking all day, he offered to make us box lunches; and terrific lunches they were - pork buns, chicken, cheese, tomato sandwiches. Glen and Tonya are terrific hosts and it was a joy to stay at the Grasmere Lodge. We highly recommend the Grasmere.

We spent one night in Grasmere lodge in March 2019 and this was a perfect place for our honey moon! The area and the lanscapes are superb!
All the staff is very welcoming, the rooms are huge with great views on the mountains and the meals were amazing!
A special tribute to :
- Heather, the horse trekking lady, who accompanied us on a very nice ride in the moutains with her horses
- all the staff, very friendly
- the sheep (we don't remember its name) : the only sheep that loves to cuddle you!
We recommend!

GrasmereLodgeNZ, Manager at Grasmere High Country Bed & Breakfast Lodge, responded to this reviewResponded 30 November 2019

Hi , great to hear you had such a good time at Grasmere, we have had a change of management and Grasmere now operates as a Bed and Breakfast Lodge so we no longer have an onsite restaurant for evening meals but we do a great continental breakfast. We also have opened our kitchen to guests, to allow them to self-cater for lunch and dinner.
Hope to see you back again . Grasmere Lodge Management Team.

The Grasmere Lodge is a beautiful and relaxing place. We very much enjoyed the accommodations. However, the best part was Chef Glen and his wife Tonya. They are special people that do everything they can to make your stay exceptional. Chef Glen has a gift for sure and you won't find better meals anywhere. It's peaceful, clean and just plain a nice place to relax. Thanks Glen and Tonya.

We had a wonderful time at the Grasmere Lodge. Glen and Tanya are amazing hosts and were warm and welcoming to our family of 5. The location is a bit remote (which we loved) and near several fishing lakes which our boys enjoyed very much. Glen is an incredible chef and each night there were yummy new selections to choose from. In the morning, a full breakfast with fruit, eggs, potatoes, bacon/meats, breads and of course yogurt and cereals. The homemade carrot juice was to die for. When the power went out on our first night, Glen and Tanya served us a candlelit dinner and then put out tiny candles down the hallway to our rooms and around our room as well...it was the most beautiful evening of our trip. Also, do not miss the stars...I have never seen stars like that in my life, truly spectacular! We highly recommend Grasmere Lodge and are so grateful to Glen and Tanya for all that they did for us!

We have stayed at Grasmere Lodge during our trip over the South Island and it was the best accommodation on our trip. It was simply amazing. The locations is just stunning, with 360° views over the surrounding mountains. Its really secluded and at night you will see the most beautiful night sky ever. Rooms are big, comfortable and beautifully furnished. The owner and every other staff member makes you feel truly welcome and almost like home. Food in the onsite restaurant is a heaven for your taste buds. I would genuinely recommend to everyone travelling through Arthur's Pass to stay here.

What a gem on our trip from the west coast to Christchurch. We booked Grasmere Lodge on recommendation from friends who had previously stayed. After a busy stay in Franz Josef we were looking for something a little more quiet and intimate to end our trip with and Grasmere didn't disappoint.

Upon arrival we were kindly greeted by front of house member Tanya (her husband Glen also happens to be the head chef of the property). Tanya was warm and inviting and really set the tone for our stay. We were invited into the lounge area where we had a drink and a chat with Tanya and Glen about our travels thus far. Instantly we felt like we were in a home away from home.

Next we were shown to our room which was absolutely stunning. In a previous review someone had referred to the decor as dated, I would disagree and say it is luxury with the decor fitting the lodge charm. The room was spacious with an amazing view. The bathroom was modern and clean with all of the small toiletries and amenities you would want. Having both a shower and luxurious bath it was the perfect place for us to relax and freshen up after our drive.

We had dinner at the lodge that night, 2 courses which were devine. My partner and I have different dietary requirements and chef Glen catered to that without any issues. The meal was gorgeous, 5 star comfort food and a great way to end our trip. We had eaten out alot during our trip so it was nice to have a fine dining experience that felt like we were in the comfort of our own home.

After a really great night sleep in a comfortable king bed we entered the dining area where Tanya and Glen were setting up a breakfast bar. Glen remembered my dietary requirements and prepared a couple extras that catered to that. From cereals to homemade bread and all the bacon, eggs, sausage and potatoes in between it truly was a breakfast to suit everyone. Our barista made coffee completed the morning meal.

We were very happy with our stay at Grasmere. Glen and Tanya make you feel as though you are staying with friends at their lush country lodge while maintaining professionalism and a high quality of service.

There is no cell reception, in room TV and the WiFi is shakey at times but that is what we loved most about this place. We wanted somewhere tranquil to end our travels with and Grasmere truly is an amazing retreat. We will definitely be staying here again and would highly recommend!
