Highly recommended. Our every need and more was met. Breakfast was fantastic with everything you could possibly want all included. Pauline and John were amazingly generous with their canapés every night which included chesses, salmon and wine. We had the black suite which was more like a self contained apartment. A perfect balance of luxury and a homelike feel. We... More

Spent here 1 night in September, on our way to Fiordland; Hospitality was bar-none: we've received a royal reception and, for a night, felt like we've actually found some long-lost relatives; the lodge, rooms and grounds were immaculate, and you could feel the personal touch of Pauline and John in every corner and every aspect; breakfast was sumptuous and so...

Pauline and John were the most wonderful hosts! They welcomed us with open arms and quickly made us feel at home. Their lodge was incredibly beautiful. Decorated so lovely. Clean. Comfortable. Luxurious. Food was amazing. We wish we would have stayed longer! Sad to leave our new friends so soon. We will be back!

We had the most amazing stay at Lime Tree Lodge. John and Pauline are the most friendly, welcoming hosts we have ever come across! They made us feel right at home and so relaxed.
