My husband and I stayed at No Road Inn during our honeymoon while we did the Queen Charlotte Track. Barb & Garry are wonderful hosts - they strike the balance of being warm, gracious hosts and giving you privacy perfectly. The property is gorgeous with all of the finer details take care of - claw bath in room and delicious breakfast including the famed egg cooker!

A soak in the hot tub was perfect after a day walking and the views are magical. Such a special place. Highly recommend a visit.

We stayed at the No Road Inn while hiking the Queen Charlotte Trail. The lodge is first class, and Barb and Gary were outstanding hosts. I may just take the water taxi to the No Road Inn and skip the trekking next time. It really was a highlight of my entire visit to New Zealand.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

We stayed here in January 2013 as part of our honeymoon in NZ. We travelled to some amazing places in NZ, but the one place that we loved best of all was No Road Inn. We stayed for just one night whilst trekking the Queen Charlotte, but we could easily have stayed for a month!

The setting is great, on the shore of the water and right in the bush. It is so peaceful and soothing there. The rooms are HUGE and 5 star quality, no kidding. Our room was in the corner, with a great balcony area with hammocks, plus a superb bathroom with Eco shower (hot!) and a bathtub with a one way mirror looking out into the bush.

The best of all was the hot tub, tucked away in the bush by the side of the house.

The hosts were excellent, really nice people and just the right balance of hospitality and friendliness, whilst still respecting your space and privacy. We really felt that this must be the sort of deluxe getaway that film stars opt for when they want to be somewhere private and peaceful but still get pampered like royalty.

Special mention to the excellent cooking - Gary really is a master chef and we had our best meal of the honeymoon sitting on the balcony watching the sunset and listening to the water and drinking delicious local wines. If we had a time travel machine, this is where we would return to every few months!

We are from Russia and Gary even had some interesting information and newspaper clippings on a russian ship that sank in the sounds in the 1980s in mysterious circumstances.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked good but the upstairs room in the corner (our room) was best of all

My husband and I stayed at The No Road Inn at the end of October and loved every minute - owners Barb and Gary made us feel very welcome and cooked a spectacular 5 course meal accompanied by great wine. Our room was very spacious with a beautiful view plus a large bath which was perfect after a " day on the track" - highly recommended!
