We spent two very comfortable nights at Oak Lodge. Our hosts were welcoming and worked hard to make all aspects of the stay enjoyable. The breakfasts were so big that there was no need for lunch. Our room was large and clean and we could have drinks on the balcony and watch the sunset. There is also a guests lounge...

Our massive room, with ample balcony overlooking the pastureland, was comfortable and quiet. There was a downstairs lounge and an upstairs lounge/kitchenette. Beautiful gardens surround the property and the Inman's sheep and chickens are great fun to feed (under Alastair's supervision). Both Alastair and Shirley were very attentive and helpful. Breakfast was delicious!

Glad you enjoyed the sheep and chickens. The girls just love meeting new people all the time and really enjoy the attention and of course the sheep nuts.

We love this place. I had stayed at Oak Lodge several years ago, while on a motorcycle trip with a friend, and wanted to make sure that my wife also had the chance to experience Alistair's and Shirley's home and hospitality. Mission accomplished. She liked it so much, I had a hard time convincing her to leave. The home itself...

Quite a large B&B but very amenable and hosts. The room was quite big, spotlessly clean and well furnished with a good view back towards Greymouth. It is ideally situated for local walks and nearby attractions. An excellent breakfast was served along with muffins we took out with us.

Good food, gracious hosts. Grace under pressure when the power failed--which apparently never happens. Shirley still got all of our breakfast orders out with her gas stove. Lovely common area room with reading nooks, coffee, tea and-- the cookies! I dare you to have just one. The history of the place and the careers of Alistair and Shirley are fun...

We got a room here with about an hour's notice after the earthquake diverted us from our trip to Kaikoura, and we appreciated the warm and cosy roof over our heads so much! Alastair and Shirley were excellent hosts, and there were some really nice features like a sauna that guests could use for free. Breakfast was delicious, especially Shirley's...
