I have found it difficult to decide what to write for Huka Lodge, i will explain. The location is wonderful, the rooms are very nice and well planned. There are approx 20 lodge rooms to take a guess; owners cottage and the Pye cottage. I would definitely stay at the cottages rather than lodge. Simply more privacy. The staff are...

From the moment you drive through the gates of Huka lodge you are aware that you are in an extremely unique and special place in the world. The grounds are immaculate. The level of luxury that is instantly apparent is indescribable. Huka Lodge is not your run-of-the-mill five star experience (in any 5 star experience can be call run of...

This is, bar none, the best service we have ever had. I was admiring the fly rods and within the hour one was on the porch with all the tackle one would need. We went shopping in town and our driver from the lodge circled the block until I was finished. No waiting in lines at the airport - we...

This has been the second time I have been to Huka Lodge and both times have been wonderful. This visit was a business visit and the staff were so accommodating it was amazing. Traveling with international guests is not always easily but Huka made my job very easy. Dinner in the trophy room was stunning although very drawn out. The...

We were greeted at the entrance by the manager with "Air gun" (for howareyougoing in Australian) - very funny. What to say? Relaxed, charming, beautiful, stylish - perfect. Nothing is a concern, anything that is possible is a done thing. Truely a lodge in every sense, old time elegance. Stayed 4 days, not enough for me! For a treat, arrive...

This is a very fine hotel. The place is beautiful inside and out. The staff is excellent. The rooms or beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and have great views of the river. You can open your door and walk right to the river bank. I tried my hand at a little fishing right in front of our room. Rooms have all...

Stayed two nights in September in a Junior Lodge Suite. This is a remarkable Lodge with so much history. The architecture, the setting, the ambiance are unmatched anywhere, but it does have its flaws. Every room faces the river and you can literally walk out your door and drop a fishing line in and find yourself catching trout. But you...

My husband and I stayed at Huka Lodge in January for 4 days whilst on an extended holiday in New Zealand. With its beautiful gardens, in which we dined care of a wonderful chef, Paul Froggatt, it became one of our favourite experiences.

I visited last year for my honeymoon. The match of a spectacular scenery, the hotel and the service makes this hotel one of the most beautiful hotels I visited in my life. All our dinners in different beautiful areas are memorable. I recommend this hotel.

We stayed 4 nights this Easter weekend and the lodge was running at capacity. Only negative is the lack of privacy in the rooms as fellow hotel guests walk in front of rooms which means that if you want privacy, you need to close the curtains which you don't want to have to given the beautiful location. Highly professional and...
