This place you must try. It's hidden outside Queenstown just 5 min by car and with a great vue over Wakatipo Lake and Cecil Peak. Claudia is taking care of you in the best and most friendly way that you could imagine. So if you want it quiet and yet close to Queenstown, you found the best place.

Perched on the hillside just outside Queenstown overlooking Lake Wakatipu, all the bedrooms and the living rooms have fantastic views over the lake to the hills beyond. The bedroom was well equipped and very comfortable and the living area was stylish and well furnished. Claudia serves an excellent cooked breakfast

We had great expectations about this lodge and we were not disappointed. The place is decorated with taste, has many upscale amenities (try the wood fire heated outdoor hot tub), beautiful view on one side and relaxing terrace in the back. Claudia is an outstanding in her ways of welcoming clients and serves tasteful breakfast (including her home made bread)....

We arrived at Hidden Lodge on Sunday January 29th to a lovely, warm welcome from Claudia. She was so helpful with all things we asked even before we arrived. Our room, The Tahi was quiet, elegant, clean and the view outstanding. We had the pleasure of staying here for 4 nights. I would come back in a second.

I stayed at Hidden Lodge on the 21st January, and could not recommend it more. Loved the place, the location, the rooms and the service. The relaxed atmosphere reassured you that could make this magnificent place home for the duration of your stay. Felt pampered, and it was perfectly located close to Q'Town but far from the busy-ness of Q'Town....

This is a wonderful place to stay. Nice and quiet but close to the township if you feel like going out for a meal. The rooms are well appointed and most of them have the beautiful view of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables. I could never get tired of the scenery. Great place to go to recharge your batteries. Brilliant...
