Liz and Martin run a fantastic B&B. They are a great couple, very friendly and went out of their way to help us with the many problems we had. The lodge itself is like home away from home. Very comfortable, clean, in a quiet area, good WiFi, beds, showers etc. The area itself is a good base as there are lots of walks to be done within an hours drive of Methven. Peak hill near Lake Coleridge and Woolshed hut were our favourites. I highly recommend the lodge as a first stop from Christchurch.
