Had a fantastic time at Quickenberry Guesthouse this weekend. Christine & Robert were friendly, the place was full and the other guests a delight. We all got on so well it was a very enjoyable stay. The pre dinner drink by the fire warmed us all up and the evening meal was just enough to be comfortable. It was fun...

Only stayed the one night at Quickenberry but what a fantastic place. Christine and Robert provided a friendly welcome, warm service and delicious food. The room had a great view over a paddock and Mount Hutt provides a dramatic backdrop. The room was well appointed and large with a comfortable bed and very plush quilt. Very impressed!

This is what everybody said to us when we told about our itenary through New Zealand. Well we found out why our agency did book us a night in Quickenberry! Unfortunately we did not know about the dinner possibilities, but we asked Robert in the afternoon and it was not a problem. The location of the lodge is perfect, we...

We wined and dined on New Year's Eve at Quickenberry and the whole experience was just superb to begin a New Year. Christine and Robert were wonderful hosts and welcomed us as friends. The food was "to die for" and just exceptional. The Lodge was so peaceful to stay in and the scenery up that way is amazing. We can...

Some years ago we enjoyed dining a number of times at "Stronechrubie". Then the business was sold and we could only salivate at the memories of the exquisite dishes prepared by Robert. Recently we discovered that Christine and Robert had opened "Quickenberry" and we have just enjoyed a wonderful stay. The location is very peaceful and relaxing and the scenery...

We have stayed here several times and keep coming back. We love the environment, the comfort and quality of the accommodation, the wonderful friendliness of our hosts: Christine & Robert, the way the facilities promote relaxation, contemplation or outdoor activities: walking, sightseeing. The quality of the food is first class and Robert is such an inspired chef. Each time we...
