5 out of 5

Great lodge, set up in the Cadrona Valley

Pros: Great decor - great hospitality - fantastic location - easy access to Wanaka, Arrowtown, easy hi speed wifi access! Fun and quirky details - fine food
Cons: nothing to improve - though I have no doubt this host will keep improving anyway!
Location: 20 min easy drive/ Wanaka - along the Cadrona Valley towards Arrowtown, great scenery. Angelo is a celebrated Chef and takes hospitality seriously.
The host, Angelo - met us at the door, even though we were late arrivals - Showed us around to make us feel welcome and at home and explained where everything was to be found. What an amazing place! The heating was on, and a friendly log fire - very welcome after a long trip. Angelo offered us a complimentary drink and snack - also welcome as dinner was a while ago. The internal decor recently updated was perfect - with stylish touches everywhere from the deep cushioned leather lounges to the excellent comfy beds. And, most important - really easy to access high speed free wifi. Angelo arranged breakfast with us - to be served in our own lounge - anything we wished for, and any time to suit our schedule - he understands hospitality is all about the guests comfort.
