We stayed over New Years and had a great time - a lodge full of kiwis for New Year, very unusual!
Our room was comfortable, well sized and clean. The bathrooms were spotless.
The DVD, book and game collections are impressive.
The company was friendly. The small size of the lodge (about 17 beds we think) means that you can be confident on a daily basis of meeting pretty much everyone who is staying!
Bath and pool towels are provided, the kayaks are great (if a little heavy to pull back up the slight hill from the beach) and overall, its a lovely little place that we are glad to have stayed at.
Do be warned - the rooms are a little oddly laid out, and everyone has to go outside to get to either the kitchen, bathroom or TV lounge, and the soundproofing is not the best.

You should note that we are located a 30min scenic drive (25kms) from Picton, into the stunning Marlborough Sounds. We guarantee it is worth the drive to experience our premium rooms and sparkly clean facilities. The popular Queen Charlotte Track is only 2 mins walk from our doorstep. The pace here is quiet, comfortable and relaxed. Explore the bays, kayaking, swimming, mountain biking or walking the local tracks.
