We stayed for one night on route to Akoroa and wasn't expecting much. We we were very pleasantly surprised to find a high quality clean beautiful lodge. The owners were wonderful made us feel right at home and cooked us a wonderful breakfast. We sat in the evening drinking a glass chatting with the other guests it was super.

Amazing little lodge! Stephen and Rosemary were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was wonderful and homecooked in front of us. We had a lovely stay and would certainly return on our next trip through Murchison!

The Lodge is spacious, comfortable and immaculately clean. Breakfast is excellent with yummy home made marmalade, and the big log burner makes the Lodge cosy and warm. However we sensed that the hosts had mixed feelings about being "in service": on arrival at 7pm we were greeted by Rosemary and Stephen who were clearly the worse for drink and who...

Thank you Lorna for your review. We feel very sad that you did not enjoy staying at Murchison Lodge. It is interesting to note that quite a number of our lovely guests have been disappointed with their change of plans due to the earthquake at Kaikoura. No doubt you and Roger felt this way. Our guests mostly arrive at 4pm...

We stayed here for one night on route to Arthurs Pass. It was a late change in our itinerary after the awful Kaikoura earthquake. We had a warm welcome from the owners. The rooms were clean, spacious, and comfortable, and contained all we were likely to need. The lodge is set in a pretty garden, where we could sit out...

We visited Murchison Lodge for just one night with our family of four. It was a delightful place to stop on our journey from Picton to Greymouth. The rooms were spacious and clean and our host Stephen provided great advice for dinner. A delightful cooked breakfast was served at a communal table which made for good conversation with the other...

I stayed one night here while doing a trek on Mburo lake park. The hotel was suitable, but I would not want to stayed multiple nights here for the reasons below. Cons :The room and bathroom are quite small and difficult to manage with 2 people inside at the same time. The food was excellent, but they were very cheap...

Hello Sniggierburger Its great to review places that you have stayed at. However, your review for Murchison Lodge NZ relates to a Lodge somewhere else - on Safari somewhere? It would be good if you could rewrite the review for the correct Lodge. Rosemary

A lovely welcome from Steve when we arrived quite late for our stay. Showed us around and sorted out cutlery etc for the pizza we picked up en route. Lounge was large and spacious with comfortable seating that meant it was nice to sit and chat with other guests. Our room was huge, clean and very comfortable. Everything was spotless....

Small gestures make all the difference and when your host tracks you down to a local pub to provide an umbrella because it's raining you know it's a very special place! A wonderful stay with very caring hosts; thank you.

Throughly recommend Murchison Lodge - great ambience and service. Comfortable bed and spacious room. Great breakfast. Nice cosy fire. Only minor criticism is that the shower could use a bit more pressure!
