Kinloch Lodge is a remote, lakeside wilderness lodge located on New Zealand's South Island. Just a stones throw from the Routeburn and Greenstone tracks and within easy reach of Queenstown and Glenorchy, we offer accommodation ranging from 4-share bunkrooms to queen bed & breakfast rooms. You can self-cater or enjoy a meal in our restaurant, and spend the days trekking, fishing, jetboating, horse-trekking, or simply enjoying the magnificent natural surroundings.
Lonely Planet "Author's Pick"
"our pick: Kinloch Lodge… Across Lake Wakatipu from Glenorchy, this excellent retreat is a great place to unwind or prepare for a tramp. Rooms in the bunkhouse are comfy and colourful, with an outdoor hot tub and an indoor DVD-packed lounge; both just right for putting your feet up after a long tramp. The 19th-century Heritage Rooms are small but plusher. A cafe, bar and good restaurant (mains $15-30; open 8am-8pm) are on site and if you're eating outside, look forward to stunning lake views and the attention of just maybe the South Island's friendliest dogs. Kinloch is a 26km drive from Glenorchy, or you can organise a five-minute boat ride ($10) across the lake. Kinloch Lodge can also arrange track transfers to various trail-heads. Even if you're not a tramping type, it's worth staying at least a night to soak up the relaxed ambience."
