“Chocolate fondant... out of this world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

I was made to feel very welcome throughout my stay. My room was very clean with an extremely comfy bed and even real milk for my filter coffee!! The food was fantastic, especially the chocolate fondant! I will definitely be returning there next time I'm in Roxburgh!

Having stayed for 3 nights in total, this lodge was a highlight of the tour of Central Otago. The hosts were fantastic and nothing was a problem including taking time out to drive us to the Roxburgh trotting races which happened to be on at the time. The food was excellent however special mention must be made of the chocolate fondant I couldn't get past it, having one every night. The wine selection is also worth a mention with some very nice local Pinot's and Chardonnay's being sampled.

Room Tip: We had a spa bath room which made for a generous sized bathroom

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

We stayed two nights here and were made to feel really welcome.
We had a studio room with a very comfortable bed and a sitting area.Like most motel/lodge accommodation there was a shower but no bath.There was a small fridge and tea/coffee making facilities and also a little outside deck area with table and chairs.
The food was really good.The service is a bit on the slow side but then Kim and Phil do everything themselves and who's in a hurry when on holiday?
I had a great spicy prawn dish one night and pork loin the other.My husband's salmon fish cakes looked tasty and he said that the Hereford fillet he had was delicious.
If you are into beer do ask Phil for his recommendations as he has an interesting selection of specialist beers.
Strangely enough,we discovered that Kim's sister lives in the same town as us in the UK.

Enjoyed a one night stay here so we could catch up with some friends that were also travelling in the area. We had a superb meal in the Restaurant and the hosts were great! we would definitely stay here again if we are travelling through. If not just for the meals. The accommodation is fairly straight forward and comfortable.

My brother and I stayed for one night. The service and hospitality bestowed on us was of a high standard. Kim the owner was extremely helpful with local knowledge of sights and things to do.
The room and beds were extremely comfortable and we could not fault the decor or the amenities.
Congratulations

Great accommodation, nice rooms, but the highlight of the stay was the food and Kim is certainly an amazing chef. The dinner and breakfast were both awesome meals. She knows how to cook! The Hereford beef and venison were both wonderful choices for dinner as were the pancakes and porridge for breakfast. Don't forget to tell them you're dining when checking in - don't assume they will know this.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you also enjoyed dinner, amazing how cycling makes you soooo hungry, especially in the rain and wind!!! Look forward to seeing you again when you are here for some more cycling and to allow me to cook for such an appreciative audience, thank you, Kim

We stayed at Lake Roxburgh Lodge to check out the new Roxburgh Gorge Trail, and start the Clutha Gold Trail. It was perfect, very friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast, the dinner food was great too, it was nice sitting out in the sun to eat.
