Our golf group of 8 friends (we'd come to play nearby Terrace Downs) -- who are a collection of pernickety people, over-used to the good things --- stayed for two nights, and were blown away. The place is very comfortable, with generous rooms, and a pleasant rural setting with views. The hosts, Christine and Robert are friendly. and very capable....

If Vegas holidays are your thing, this region isn't. But if you're into golf, hunting, fishing, skiing, walking... then get there. Quickenberry was immaculate, warm cozy lodge-like accommodation with rural outlooks. Robert and Christine have been doing this a while (30+ years apparently!) and it shows with service and food absolutely on point. Don't be put off by the price...

My husband and I had the most incredible evening here last night. From arrival to departure, this place is world class. The cuisine is absolutely amazing - every bite a taste sensation. It doesn't get better than this - wonderful views of the stunning surrounding scenery. We will be back. What a privilege it was to spend the evening here.

Thanks for a wonderful night away Robbie and Christine. Our favourite course was the aubergine ravioli with feta and pine nuts although everything was wonderful. The scrambled eggs at breakfast were divine. Hopefully we won't leave it so long before we're back.

So many friends recommended The Quickenberry Lodge to us that we decided to visit for dinner, bed and breakfast at the end of our year long trip to NZ. It was, by far, the best accommodation and food combination. Greeted with tea and chocolate cake, we had a rest, a pre dinner drink and then a wonderful four course evening...

Quickenberry is a lovely small lodge in a stunning setting high above the Rakaia Gorge with views over rolling country side and towards Mt. Hutt. It is peaceful and quiet giving a feeling of remoteness yet it is only one hour from Christchurch Airport. There are many walks nearby, there is golf and skiing and many other activities.
