Guest Comments

We have been fortunate to have had some fantastic guest come and stay at Mount Maude Country Lodge and by the sound of it we think they have enjoyed their experience as well. This is a small selection of comments guests have made:

We travelled the whole West Coast stopping a various places and Mt Maude Lodge was by far the best. Stephen Jan 2018

John and Trish are the best hosts we’ve stayed with. We learnt so much about NZ from them and they showed us how much magic you could work on the house. The house is filled with the fresh smell of roses and lavender, all freshly plucked from their gardens. The beds are wonderfully comfortable. Our 7 year old boy was also very intrigued by the cherry picking experience. The house is also located amidst the wonders of NZ nature. Definitely highly recommended! Diana Dec 2017

Trish and John greeted us and were very sociable and very helpful giving us suggestions for places to eat and visit. Accomodation was first class and very comfortable for the two nights we stayed. Breakfast was a superb continental meal and set us up for the day. We were made to feel like one of the family and a good start to our week away. Exceptional value. Barbara April 2017

‘We have traveled many countries. I think that this is the best B&B I’ve visited yet. I really loved staying at this B&B. And will be an unforgettable memory for my wife and me. … forever Because we saw many Stars were twinkling in the night sky. Really friendly and helpful owner. The room was very clean and bed was so comfortable. Located by outside Wanaka, but just only 5 min by car.’

‘Among the very best. Delightful countryside manor with superb accommodations. The hosts were very friendly and helpful.’

‘A Warm and Inviting Country Home. Felt like we were part of the family. John was a wonderful host and the property was amazing. Enjoyed the company and did not want to leave.’

‘Dear John & Trish, Merry xmas to you and your family. Thanks for receiving us on this holiday n your beautiful house and spoiling us with views, hospitality and luxury. What a view to wake up to. At home we specialise in flat lands. So we are enjoying every vertical metre of this area. The heli-ride to Siberia valley and jetboat adventure on the Wilkin exceeded all expectations as did the quality of the food at Relishes in Wanaka. Thanks Trish for the tip. We will remember this haven of peace and tranquility.’ Daniel, Joachim & Maarten, Belgium
