Read what people are saying about their time at Kinloch Lodge.
Finding such friendly service and great food with a sunny outlook over the lake and mountains is an unexpected joy after such a beautiful drive from Glenorchy. My wife’s lamb burger would have made me jealous had my fish meal not been so fresh and yummy! Our sister’s vegetarian platter brought oohs and ahs from all 3 of us when it was delivered by a handsome and friendly waiter. The coffee was excellent and the beer… Well it’s beer right? But there was a good selection including some local brews! Go for lunch, dinner, breakfast, snacks or dessert….but just GO!
Great location. Super view. Good service. Very much worth the stop. A dirt road approach so be prepared. I recommend this stop! You will not be disappointed. We met some nice people who have come back many times.
Absolutely loved it! If you like discovery part of NZ you have never seen before, and ending up at a lovely little lodge for a beautiful meal…then you should try this! It is 25 mins past Glenorchy, but the drive is worth it. We had lunch, and ordered a shared platter, which was the best platter ever! We will be back for sure, bringing our husbands next time! My ‘profile photo’ is of our lunch there at Kinloch yesterday! 10/10 for a unique experience!
Super friendly staff making sure we were warm and enjoyed our meals. Food was delicious, full of flavour, and made with such care and thought. Absolutely delicious!
We stopped here for lunch on the recommendation of Delta Discovery and were pleased we did. The views on our sunny day were glorious, the Welsh waiter very friendly, and the food of high quality. I also enjoyed perusing the historic pieces on display and reading the history of the bus company.
Stayed here after completing the Routeburn and Caples tracks and also booked transport to and from the track with them. Room was small and very basic but cosy. Location is absolutely stunning and very peaceful. Staff very friendly and tried their best.
