We spent 3 nights at the lodge and it was sublime. The historic building is lovely but they have all of the modern conveniences that you would need. The view is spectacular and we had it from our oversized room and from our dinning room table . The food is chef driven and ample . Lunches were made for us on the days that we fished and hiked. Richard was our guide and he was wonderful in spotting the fish and helping us land them. Bill and Jenny were the best and our evening chats over sport events were delightful. A whole menu of activities to partake in is available even if you are not fisher people. Go for the ambiance , the food, the wine and to step back into time.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Along a quiet country lane that winds its way through the Gowan River valley lies Lake Rotoroa Lodge. It is nestled at the northern tip of New Zealand's spectacular Southern Alps.This isolated and unspoiled location is surrounded by the forests of the Nelson Lakes National Park. Lake Rotoroa is considered the jewel in the crown of the park: its tranquil waters reflect a magnificent vista of snow-capped mountains and lush native bush.From the lodge's idyllic and romantic lakeside location, guests can gaze along the length of Lake Rotoroa to the towering peaks of the Travers Range, and lapping at the foot of the lodge lawn, the waters of the Gowan River may just cause them to become lost in thoughts of some of the world's finest brown trout fishing that can begin just a few short steps away. Enjoy this stunning view from the lodge's open-fired sitting room, dining room or, indeed, from many of our guest rooms.The Nelson Lakes National Park, with its alpine environment, is just one of three National Parks that surround the city of Nelson (1½ hours away). The Abel Tasman National Park is coastal (offering some of the very finest, golden beaches in the world, together with the internationally renowned Abel Tasman Track) and New Zealand's most recently designated National Park, Kahurangi, is one of the world's great wilderness environments. There are times of the year when it really is possible to swim in the ocean in the morning and ski in the mountains in the afternoon! ... more less
