Quaint small town, great location set back from the main street. Wonderful hosts, good hot food. Lovely farm on the grounds complete with chickens, compost, cherry and pear trees. All the food served at breakfast came from their land!

We recently spent 1 night in Murchison Lodge as a stopover on our way from Picton to Arthur's Pass. Little did we realize that the lodge would be so cozy and comfortable and that our hosts would be so gracious. We had the upstairs large front bedroom which looked out onto the gardens and mountains and was very pleasant. We...

I stayed for 4 nights just this past week using the lodge as my base for fishing/exploring. Great feeling as soon as you pull down the driveway. The house is extremely comfortable and the Riverside room was perfect - peaceful and comfortable with a great view. Rosemary and Stephen made me feel very welcome, like one of the family. Can't...

Excellent accommodation and great reception by owners. Lodge can host up to four couples, but does not have enough privacy when fully loaded. Excellent breakfast and good atmosphere but little ado in town, and limited choice for dining.

Thank you for your review. In the summer season the Lodge is popular due to its strategic position. However, most guests are out and about experiencing the great outdoor opportunities in the Murchison/Nelson Lakes area. There are plenty of places to sit at the Lodge - outside on the veranda, in the sitting room, on a chair on the lawn...

Thank you for the delightful review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Murchison Lodge and that the weather did not make too much of a difference to your enjoyment here. We are about to commence a revamp programme and look forward to the room you were staying in being a little lighter. Rosemary and Stephen

Murchison Lodge was one of the best accommodation experiences we enjoyed during a February tour of the South Island. This very attractive facility has a pleasant alpine flavour and blends wonderfully with the surrounding gardens, pastures and great views to distant ranges.
