We booked one night at the lodge and was pleasantly surprised at the accommodation. Rooms appear new and very tastefully decorated. Beds had electric blankets and bathroom had under floor heating. Although we didn't take advantage of the spa pool room it looked very nice. No views but after a day travelling through the ever changing scenery we were in...

We rode into Ranfurly on the Otago Rail Trail and the hotel was very easy to spot. This property is immaculate and extremely well kept and we were greeted by the cheerful hosts. The rooms are very modern with every amenity, a spa room and a secure room to store your bikes - it was a shame we were only...

Stayed overnight whilst doing the Rail Trail. The room was comfortable and clean. We were able to do some washing and Richard kindly found us a drying rack. We had ebikes and we were able to charge them in a separate bike shed....very nice touch. After so much restaurant dining we collected a couple of steaks and some salad ingredients,...

The quality of facilities and service at Hawkdun Lodge far exceeded my expectations; in fact, this is the best accommodation I have experienced in all of New Zealand.

Richard was spectacular! Bent over backwards to ensure we had everything needed to rest, relax and recuperate. The lodge had a wonderful spa and was a hop,skip and a jump from the main village. Even had a specifically dedicated room in which to store our bikes. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for one night and can not fault the comfort and cleanliness of the unit. We stayed in a spa suite which had a sky light but no shade so was a bit bright in the morning despite good black out blinds on the main windows. Having spoken to the owners since believe this will be addressed. Overall good...
