The lodge was spotless was in walking distance to the Ranfurly shops. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. A lovely setup for breakfast and a brilliant laundry. The spa area is a nice place to unwind and relax. Definitely recommend and would stay there again

This is one of the best motels I have stayed at - new, fresh, clean, spacious and with a continental breakfast thrown in. I was not on the Rail Trail but I would think this would be an excellent place to unwind, relax and spend some time in the spa. Would definitely stay there again.

This place appears very new and modern. Everything is well set up and spotless.There is plenty of space in the bathroom and it was kept very clean.
The Lodge itself can be seen from the Rail Trail and everything in Ranfurly is within walking distance.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
The continental breakfast was also very good.

Loved this place!! The service was awesome! After the place we had originally meant to stay got our booking wrong we found this place and so glad we did! Diane was super welcoming and lovely. The spa was super relaxing and the common room with the fully equipped kitchen was lovely to cook dinner in and then enjoy the lovely breakfast in the morning. Totally recommend staying here!!

After cycling for 32 kms from Hyde, the executive studio with spa bath was just what we needed! The room was spacious with everything you could wish for - including make up remover pads! The room was well appointed and very relaxing. We were made to feel so welcome.

Room Tip: Loved the executive room with spa bath

We loved this spot, right off the rail trail. It's not in the center of town, but at a quiet end of the street. Diane and Richard were friendly and helpful. There's a perfect spa pool for resting weary bones after a day long bike trip.
They have outdoor barbecue for guests, free laundry, and will make every effort to make your stay memorable.
We'd have no issue with staying here again!

We stayed three days while hunting nearby. The apartment like area was large enough to spread out and do some laundry before starting the rail trail adventure. The bed was nice with a fluffy duvet and free wifi for communication back to USA. THE breakfast is nice and they have real coffee as well as a fire place to warm on cold mornings in the common room. And the hot tub was the best!!!!
