We only spent a short time at Wilderness Lodge which we thought was a lovely place and not as difficult to reach as we had imagined. We stayed in a Rainforest Room which was somewhat larger than we expected, extremely comfortable with good furnishings, an excellent shower room and probably the best bath towels we had in all of New...

We did really enjoy our stay here. It's not luxurious by any stretch but the unique qualities of this location plus the knowledge of the hosts/staff were much appreciated. We loved our nighttime tour to view the starry sky (the best we've ever seen due to no light pollution...you can even see satellites) as well as the afternoon hike to...

Dear Susan L, Thanks for your review. We were pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time with us but sorry you felt that value was lacking. Providing quality wilderness accommodation in a remote location along with fine food and activities led by expert naturalist does come at a cost. We feel that when you factor in the overall experience...

Since we had such great fun at Arthur's pass we knew we were in for a treat, but our expectations were exceeded! This lodge is very...

After traveling for 18 days in New Zealand, most of it on the South Island, my husband and I can say without reservation this was our favorite place of all.

The owners of The Wilderness, Gerry and Anne, have created an oasis of natural beauty and comfort. The setting on the lake is stunning; rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed; the bathrooms are gleaming; beds are superior; the library is well stocked with informative books. Dinner and breakfast are included; service is impeccable but friendly as well; the wine list...

We stayed for two nights, and loved every minute we were there. We participated in all the offered walks and hikes,and kayaking on the Lake. The Lodge was exactly what we had hoped for, an opportunity to experience the magnificent World Heritage Site that Gerry and Ann have spent a lifetime working to protect. From the wild forest, with the...

We had a 2 night stay here, and were made very welcome by Gerry and Ann. The room was comfortable, with a lovely view over the gardens. Meals were good quality, and dinner at a shared table with other guests gave opportunities to talk about what we had seen and done during the day. Amazingly, given the remote location, there...

Spent 2 nights here after a long car drive down the coast. What a joy. Greeted with kindness at the front desk, a wonderful room with a beautiful view of the lake.

I was just looking at the last two posts about this amazing Wilderness Lodge (which sadly were both very negative) and had to pinch myself and check that I was writing a review for the same place!
