Lakeside Lodge near Motueka In pretty countryside 15mins from main road to Motueka and 35-40 mins from Kaiteriteri to get boats to Abel Tasman. Lovely, friendly family and excellent meals eaten with the family. Accommodation separate from main house. Really enjoyed our stay here.

A luxury lodge in a beautiful setting, with incredibly friendly and welcoming hosts and their family (including two fabulous dogs). Home grown and cooked food for both dinner and breakfast; a spacious, modern, clean and comfortable accommodation. Splendid and the best night of our honeymoon. Thank you!

WE had the best time ever -- having kids is always a challenge ... great price ...great location. Our biggest mistake was that we didn't have enough time -- we spent only one night and could have stayed a week!

Graeme and Lisa are excellent hosts who welcome you into their home situated in beautiful setting. Close to Abel Tasman and all that it offers. Motueka not far for range of eating places. Highly recommend this luxury Bed & Breakfast for peace and quiet in very comfortable accommodation.

We stayed at Lakeside Lodge back in November for a couple of nights - so wish it had been longer! Lakeside Lodge is a beautiful log house/apartments run by Lisa and Graeme who are the most welcoming hosts and you are really made to feel like one of their family. The apartment we stayed in was just lovely, the views...
