Thanks for your warm review. We agree that the train is a special touch of luxury during a walking holiday. So glad our hosts Kayla and Adrian (and the lodge dogs) made you feel welcome and comfortable.

We found the managers so friendly and helpful. The seaside chalet was tiny, but quirky, comfortable, and had everything we needed. Stairs however to the bedroom were a little scary. Fabulous location.

Thanks for your positive feedback. The Seaside Cabin is a little treasure and we are pleased you enjoyed it. The stairs, as advertised, are quite narrow, but we are glad you managed them ok and had a good visit.

A beautiful place in such peaceful surrounds. We were greeted by Adrian with a cuppa and delicious muffins - perfect after a 5 hour walk from Duncan Bay. Great facilities - really clean and tidy. The hot tub was just what the legs needed. The food was delicious (thanks Kayla) and the lunch to take back on the return walk was welcomed and really tasty. Thanks Kayla and Adrian - would definitely recommend staying here in your peaceful part of the world. Very well organised and friendly hosts.

This is such a gorgeous and quirky place to stay. We stayed in one of the railway carriages which was so unique and very comfortable. We had our own private bathroom in there but the shared bathrooms are something special! The biggest treat of all after our walk was Adrian making us a coffee and bringing us one of Kayla’s homemade cakes. Perfect hosts and exactly what we needed. We carried all our own food (although the food on offer smelled delicious!) and the kitchen facilities, bbq and pizza oven were excellent. Having alcohol available for purchase was another treat. I could definitely have stayed an extra night to make the most of the hot tub and kayaks. Next time!

We absolutely loved our stay in our chalet at On The Track Lodge. We stayed 2 nights, after a day walking the Nydia Track, from Kaiuma Bay towards Duncan Bay, in the Marlborough Sounds. Superbly clean facilities, spacious room (downstairs chalet) with a really comfortable bed. The meals were great and our super hosts, Adrian and Kayla, were really friendly and knowledgeable!
Highly recommend the whole experience!!
