We spent three wonderful nights of our Honeymoon at Canyons Lodge and I cannot recommend it enough. Our room was beautiful and had a stunning view of the Shotover River. Andy & Mel were wonderful hosts with fantastic local knowledge, be sure to follow their advice and visit Gantley's for dinner if you can. I do hold them responsible for...

A truly special place. Chosen solely on the photos, The Canyons Lodge surpassed anything Andy and Mel could have put on the website. A great hideaway for a relaxing escape or a staging point for the more adventurous days. The local knowledge and charming atmosphere provided by our hosts made for a most enjoyable stay. We can't wait to get...

Normally I choose a place to stay from the pictures in its website. Which by doing so, disappointed me, sometimes. So, I chose The Canyon Lodge in the same way : beautiful pictures. But when I arrived, I found that The real Canyons Lodge was far more beautiful than its pictures, espescially the great view!!! You can see the beautiful...

We came to Queenstown to marry and start our honeymoon. We couldn't have chosen better than Canyon's Lodge. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel really welcome.

My wife and I capped an incredible honeymoon in NZ with three nights at The Canyons Lodge. If we could give it 6 stars, we would. The couple who own and run the place are really cool, interesting people who can provide all kinds of pointers as to what you should do in Queenstown, and they're a lot of fun...

My Husband and I were in need of some relaxation. When we arrived at The Canyons Lodge we thought we could not have chosen a better place to do so. This place exceeds anywhere we have stayed. Our room was charming and overlooked the stunning canyon. We made great use of the spa overlooking the shot over river and magical...

We chose Canyons Lodge as the venue for our wedding in February. We held the ceremony on the lawn overlooking the canyon and the reception in the Marquee (around 100 guests). We had exclusive use of the lodge for the weekend and the guests enjoyed the luxury and of course the fantastic view from every room. The entire experience from...

Canyon's Lodge is beautiful. We planned our wedding in Queenstown this year, and chose the Canyon's Lodge after an internet search. Often you find yourself disappointed when you see the real thing, but in the case of Canyon's Lodge, the real thing was better than the pictures. :o) Despite the fact that it was raining, the views across the canyon...

As we pulled into their driveway, it was like a dream come true! So peaceful, so majestic, just what the doctor ordered after a 11 day hiking/camping trip. Sue and Graham's hospitality was everything we could ask for and more. They found the perfect balance of giving us our privacy, and making us feel at home. The complimentary evening canapes...
