“A wonderful stay”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

Korimako is located in a beautiful and peaceful valley, where the views are stunning whether it's rainy, sunny or cloudy. The lodge is wonderfully secluded and tucked into a hillside, making it very quiet and tranquil. Steve and Wendy are great hosts and excellent company, as are furry friends Oscar and Shadow who were only too happy to take us for walks. We really enjoyed the delicious meals and appreciated the exceedingly comfortable accommodation. Hope to be back again at Korimako in future.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Korimako Lodge. We stayed here on route from Blenheim to Queenstown on our honeymoon. Steve and Wendy Wood were very welcoming and sociable and made sure we were very well looked after. The dinner we had was delicious - I was very impressed.

The peace and beauty of the area was incredible and provided us with the perfect 'getting away from it all' accommodation we were looking for. We left wishing we could stay longer. Oh and I highly recommend Steve's homemade bread!

We enjoyed two nights in a spacious, comfortable room. Wendy and Steve were very attentive and helped provide tips for walks in the local area. The meals were excellent and the wine too. Ideal location for nature lovers and travellers who prefer a quiet retreat. Would love to stay again!

Surrounded by nature, we spent a restful night at Korimako Lodge, which offers a quiet and romatic environment.
The hosts are very nice and caring, the rooms neat, the views astonishing...
The best night of our whole trip.

We had a great stay with Wendy and Steve Wood at Korimako Lodge. One of the highlights was a special dinner prepared by Wendy for our wedding anniversary. Dinner was served out on the upstairs deck with spectacular mountain views down into Murchison. I'd caught a trout that day and Steve had prepared it in the smoker - absolutely divine. What a top location!
Accommodation was excellent and we really enjoyed our stay. Recommend this place for a special experience.

We had an overnight stay here at this B&B. Steve and Wendy were very gracious hosts and did everything to make our stay as an enjoyable as possible. The views from the balcony of our beautifully appointed bedroom were truly breathtaking. And we did enjoy having our evening meal cooked by Wendy - that was a bonus! We thoroughly recommend this B&B to stay at.
