A great walk to Jack's point as recommended by Jude followed by penguin watching in Timaru. A lovely room, excellent bathroom and linens etc. Pleasant breakfast with fellow guests after a good night's sleep.

Just out of Timaru town (a few minutes), quiet country location. Our friendly host showed us to a decent size suite, modern, clean and comfortable with its own courtyard. This was a one night stay but could have stayed another night. The deer in their paddock was nice to observe. Didn't meet the husband of our host but I believe...

We had a one night stay at Glendeer lodge and found it to be an outstanding B&B. The hosts Jude and Paul are very helpful and accomodating.

We stayed with Jude and Paul at Glendeer lodge as the first proper stop in a 3 week trip around The south island. After a long flight into Christchurch and a couple of hours drive on our first day to Timaru the room at Glendeer Lodge was exactly what was needed. Jude made us feel very welcome and the fact...

Hi Ian, Thank you for your review, we are so glad you had a great first impression of New Zealand and enjoyed your stay with us.

This accommodation was one of the best B&B's we stayed at during our 2 weeks in NZ. Our room and bathroom were modern, large and had quality furnishings and linen. We had plenty of room to open up bags, place toiletries in our en suite etc. The bathroom had quality toiletries. The only two negatives were the cleanliness of the...

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback, as we are surrounded by nature it can sometimes be really hard work with all the birds and bugs that are in the garden as well as the nearby fields, we do regularly maintain the outside but those spiders are industrious and we don't like or use chemical sprays as we have too...

We really enjoyed our stay. The host, Jude, really has great knowledge of the area and we followed all of her suggestions which did not disappoint. The room was spacious and very beautifully decorated. The bed was so comfortable that I didn't want to leave. Our stay was much too short.

Stayed at Glendeer Lodge and was pleasantly surprised at the clean, comfortable accommodation and the close proximity to nature. Our host (Jude) prepared a wonderful breakfast which was fresh and delicious, and the experience was enhanced by the presence of cute deers grazing and prancing in front of us.
