    We had a tremendous stay here, 25 years after I had rocked up to the cafe as a uni student desperate for a beer during my hike. This time I came back with my partner to enjoy the tracks in a bit more comfort. VERY impressed by many different aspects at the lodge. Food was extremely good - we ate here for three evenings and had very interesting and delicious food. Having eaten at Michelin star restaurants I am not easily impressed, but I sure was by the fresh ingredients and innovative dishes- in the middle of a national park no less! Special shout out to the restaurant managers when we were there who were excellent at providing high quality service as well as training up new staff with care. Excellent by the glass variety of wines at reasonable prices. Rooms were really nice and spacious. A very large thanks to Fran at the front desk who dealt with a number of customers' concerns re getting Sea Shuttle or other transport out in stormy weather- she was informative, calm, and cheerful throughout. If you are a runner, the tracks around are great for a variety of fitness levels of flat or hill running, while the tramping/hiking is clearly amazing. Thanks to the whole team for a very memorable stay- we hope to be back within another 25 years!
