Redwood Lodge
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

It has been the second time that we've stayed with Liz and Martin and we will definitely come back. This couple is extremely welcoming and friendly and the facilities make you feel at home. The beds are comfortable, everything is clean and an extremely cozy communal area (that includes a fantastic fire place) is the cherry on top of the cake. Don't look any further!

In the 6 weeks we have been in NZ we have stayed all sorts of places, camper vans, huts, homes, nice b&bs, but Redwood has some of the most comfortable beds. The accommodations were clean and everyone was very friendly.

We were looking for a place in Methven that would hold 20+ people and Martin kindly agreed to let us have the whole of Redwood Lodge for the weekend exclusively. It could'nt have been better, Martin was a great host nothing was too much trouble and he even joined in the karaoke with us for a few songs, great voice by the way Martin. The whole place was extremely clean, nice modern bedding and towels, all we needed to take was ourselves, clothes and food. He had lit the fire for us in the morning but it got too hot so we asked if he could put the fire out and re-light it again later which he did. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed, the garden was lovely to sit in and had plenty of seating for everyone, there was even a BBQ we could have used if we wanted to. We all had an awesome time and have already asked to book again for next year.

This was our favourite place in New Zealand. The living area is comfortable, the kitchen is very well equipped, the bed is very comfortable and everything is very clean. Liz and Martin are wonderful hosts - very friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We were there in January/February at the beginning and end of our time in New Zealand and enjoyed the quiet peacefulness. It is an hour or so from Christchurch so for us was a good option on arrival rather than staying in the city. We arrived cold and tired to find a pot-bellied stove warming the living room, Martin waiting to greet us and help us with our luggage, and the heater making our room cosy and warm. We had an ensuite room and linen and towels are included. We woke next morning to sunshine and views of snow-capped mountains from the kitchen. It was a perfect start to our time in New Zealand and we were very happy to return near the end of our travels. An ideal place to stay for a week in the summer or in the ski season.

Excellent value and quality accommodation I have made Methven a base in South Island because of Redwood Lodge. Liz and Martin are wonderful hosts. Cleanliness is 5 star, as are kitchen facilities; quiet location; coziness of lounge; en suite facilities; amenities..(T.V. bike use, patio and B.B.Q area; library ). SUPERB!

Room Tip: All rooms slept in (3) excellent

We stayed one night, with our 7month old baby with us. They were very helpful, setting up a portacot for us, which made our late night arrival much easier. The facilities were very clean & tidy, and we appreciated the comfy beds & linen.

The kitchen is well equipped and there is a very comfy lounge to relax in. Well stocked book exchange :).

Would not hesitate to recommend.

We came across Redwood Lodge via our Lonely Planet guide book and it is a real winner. Run by Liz and Martin, they are thoroughly welcoming and the Lodge is cosy and well maintained. The rooms are clean, bedding and towels provided while the cosy shared living room and kitchen are both great.

Liz and Martin went out of their way to share tips and advice with us about Methven and the surrounding areas as well as New Zealand and without some of Martin's helpful advice we would have been driving 11 hours to a place we didn't actually want to stay in!

We highly recommended staying at Redwood Lodge and if you're lucky Martin and Liz might introduce you to Snapper the sheep!
