We offer our guests affordable luxury. We are situated in the north-western corner of the South Island close to Farewell Spit and near to the north end of the Heaphy Track and Kahurangi National Park, amongst some of the most varied scenery and activities New Zealand has to offer. We are open from late October every year through and including the Easter holiday of the following year.
Our purpose-built lodge is nestled harmoniously on a finger of land between a wildlife estuary and the shining blue waters of Golden Bay. Guests can drift off to sleep to the sound of the sea and wake to birdsong provided by our resident tui and bellbird population. Tea, coffee or hot chocolate is available in the rooms. Breakfast is in the dining room overlooking the estuary where the view sweeps up to bush clad hills.
Our lodge features curved wooden ceilings, walls of glass and offers four ensuite rooms; three queen and one twin – all with private decks, and a separate guest lounge with extensive decks to enjoy the views while sitting in the sun or shade. The rooms are individually themed with an international flavour. Our library offers a wide range of reading and reference material, and has internet available – or wi-fi for guests carrying their own computers. We offer a mini-bar in the room and guests can use the refrigerator in the room to store their own food if they wish. Our resident barista is happy to make coffee using our espresso machine at breakfast and after dinner.
We provide breakfast as part of the tariff; dinner is available by prior arrangement at an additional charge of $65 per person (not commissionable). Dinner (3 courses and wine included) are served at 7:30 p.m. – or later by arrangement – in our spacious dining room. The food we serve is very much dependent upon the local produce available on any given day. We have an extensive wine cellar, predominantly showing off New Zealand’s fine wines from the Nelson – Tasman and other regions, but some international selections are available. These can be purchased to savour while relaxing on our wrap-around decks at the end of the day or to enjoy with dinner.
Our Lodge has a Qualmark Guest and Hosted rating of 4 stars plus, and an Enviro Silver sustainability rating .
At our Lodge we have two cats that serve as both entertainment and rodent control. We do not allow cats in the guest rooms.
Our Lodge is smoke-free, but those who wish to smoke may do so outdoors on the decks. Ash trays are available on request.
Children are not catered for at our Lodge.
