    Marvelous Place to Relax!

    A marvelous place for the lodge over the lake. Our flawless room was a delightful blend of rich and comfortable, exceptionally spacious with everything we needed. Exceptionally relaxing. Sitting on our porch in the evening with a glass of chilled drink from the mini bar that was also delightful. Dinner was awesome. This is the place where you want to relax for a while after a busy hard work. Would definitely recommend to my friends and relatives.

    Spectacular View

    Despite the not sunny weather we enjoy this unique lodge. It is unique because of the people and the ambience. Wayne and Ingrid are perfect hosts 'whatever and whenever you suits you'. Flexibility at the highest level. The kitchen is excellent and the wine selection was great. Host in the restaurant was Graham - very entertaining and informative at the same time. We enjoy: Kayaking today directly from the lodge from our own jetty. Peaceful time on the lake and then a light lunch followed by a book. The suite is great. Spectacular view. Laundry service affordable and fast. Always recommended as a breather between the many activities of this beautiful countr

    Absolutely Faultless!

    Our 2 day stay at Solitaire Lodge was perfect. From the moment Nick met us when we arrived after a long day of traveling, to the moment we left we could not fault a thing. We loved the way Nick and Pip looked after our every need without fussing or being intrusive, they gave us just the right amount of attention. Our room was spacious and luxuriously beautiful and had the most amazing view of the lake. The food was absolutely wonderful, great quality and showcasing local in season produce. We loved the complimentary pre-dinner drinks and the chance to chat for a short time with others staying at the lodge. As others have mentioned, yes it would have been great if the dinner wines were included, but the complimentary in room beverages and snacks made up for that. We really appreciated the nice touch of supplying us with a picnic lunch on the day we checked out, it really made things easy. We loved our time here and would definitely recommend it as a beautiful place to stay if you visit New Zealand. The only problem for us was that every place we stayed at after this lodge couldn't measure up, so if you are travelling make sure you got to Solitaire at the end so you leave the best for last.
