Are there restaurants close by? During our stay we will be spending time in the national park and not sure if we'll pass anything along the way. Any advice is appreciated!!

As with most Lodges, we are not close to restaurants or shops. You pass through Motueka where there are 2 supermarkets about 20 minutes before getting to the Lodge. If you have day-trips out of Kaiteriteri or Marahau then dining at Hooked or Fat Tui are recommended. Riverside in Lower Moutere, 25 minutes, and The Boatshed and Jellyfish in Mapua, 40 minutes away, are also favourites.
We have 2 products - Dinner Bed & Breakfast - for the full Lodge experience or Self-Contained for a peaceful escape in nature, our Bush Chalets and Bush Lodges have small well-equipped kitchen and BBQ with basic supplies such as milk, yoghurt, jams, eggs, cheese, cereals, fruit, herbs, oil, tea and coffee etc
