Read what people are saying about their time at Kinloch Lodge.
Lovely way to unwind for two nights after we finished the routeburn. Lovely staff – amazing food if you feel like dining in the restaurant! We also cooked for ourselves one night in the well appointed kitchen. The hot tub was a huge bonus and you simply cannot beat the views!!
The best breakfast I’ve had in all of New Zealand, and we’re from Melbourne so we are pretty serious about our brunch 😂 The property was absolutely stunning and the hosts were very friendly! The Netflix projector was a lovely touch. The view out of the large glass in front of the bed was something out of a postcard. It was incredible to watch the colours near the lake and the mountains change through the day, then to look at the stars. Special shout-out to Holly the dog, the most adorable assistant to the owners. We’ll definitely be back here!
Don’t confuse the Lodge with the backpacker accommodations next door. Those are basic, but with the cleanest common areas we saw anywhere in NZ. The Lodge is where you want to stay for a luxury experience.
This place is worth the 10-minute drive down an unpaved road.
Note the strict refund policy, which minimizes staff time and helps the Lodge keep its rates very low for the quality you receive. The price is outstanding for what you get.
A great little gem hidden away off the beaten track but well worth it. Family run business and very friendly and accommodating host. Can’t rave and rate it any more then say it’s a must stay. I stayed in winter but definitely will return for another stay in the warmer weather to explore the area more.
