    Trip down memory lane

    Fantastic place to stay that has a range of accommodation to suit most budgets.I especially like the heritage lodge. Great location, especially if you are a keen walker. The Routeburn track and other hikes are close by. So nice to stay somewhere with plenty of character and history. Lovely meals and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Fabulous deck for enjoying a wine and the view. Do bring your sandfly repellent.

    What a cool, special place to be. A hidden gem with incredible views across the lake and of the mountains all around. Very enjoyable deck restaurant for full meal or just a relaxing beverage.
