“treated like royalty”
Reviewed 18 June 2007

My wife and I stayed here in February this year. The property only has 3 wonderfull bedrooms has been beautifully renovated and is situated in a fantastic position right on the side of the lake.
The breakfast and evening meals were wonderful and the hosts Michael and Jackie cannot do enough for you to make your stay so memorable. We we were only here for 3 nights and did not want to leave. We can definately say that this was clearly the best lodge that we stayed in during our holiday on North and South Island and we stayed in some of the top lodges. My wife says we will go back to New Zealand just to stay at this lodge.

Reviewed 6 October 2006

Lodge at 199 is right on the lake - a large exclusive Lodge with just 3 suites. We were the only guests so had the entire place to ourselves. It was like being a rock star renting an exclusive property.
The chef is superb and the lamb was the best I have ever had. My husband caught a trout during our Lake cruise which the chef prepared that evening as an entree.
The hosts are superb - we found hat they are both Air New Zealand First Class so the service was all that could be expected and more.
Suites are large and very comfortable.
What I want to now is - who was the Interior designer? This Lodge is straight of the best home magazine you have ever read.
A superb stay and all too short

  • Liked — Way beyond expectations
  • Disliked — perfection - having to leave
  • Tips/Secrets — Stay a few days. One night is not enough
