            Manata Lodge is a wonderful, out of the way slice of paradise between Queenstown and Arrowtown. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the facilities are wonderful. However, while we were staying building works were being completed onsite. Being asked and expected to leave our room during the day so works could commence was frustrating. When you are paying by the day you expect to have quiet enjoyment of the room across the full day at your discretion, not being asked when you are leaving and returning and having tradesmen working two metres from your room. I would recommend that works are completed with no guests. Alternately if we had received advanced notices and a discounted rate we would have been appreciated it.

            The lodge is well located, very quite, easy to find, and only 3 mins drive from shopping center, and 13 mins drive from the town. Sadly we arrived in winter and couldn't enjoy the view, as many other guests mentioned, due to the bad weather. The lodge is well managed, tidy, warm, and the shower was great. The single bed could be bit small for adult male, but still cozy. Staffs are nice and warm hearted, even we don't see them much. We did some easy cook during the stay, but don't find cooking oil or salt in the kitchen----but not big deal. Overall, love stay. Thank you

            Heaven on earth?”

            Down a quiet tranquil road 7km from Queenstown, this place really was heaven on earth! The Remarkables on one side and coronet peak on the other, it had views that were out of this world. Warren the owner was warm and made everything as easy as possible. The room was big with microwave, hob, fridge. It also had separate bathroom and toilet. Could not fault anything about this place and would highly recommend to get away from the hustle of Queenstown!

            Between both Coronet Peak and remarkables. Easy drive. Spacious. Loads to do. Clean & own facilities. Out of the busy lifestyle of Queenstown township but easy self drive. Taxis ~$40nzd each way but worth staying if have own car

            Splendid isolation”

            Away from the town on a big quiet estate, yet so close to either Queenstown or Arrowtown; magnificent views of the valley, particularly Coronet Peak, very nice staff

            Very, very pleasant. We stayed in two different apartments on two occasions, La Grande Dame and Eltrusco. The latter one is bigger and offers better views and in the former, still big and comfortable studio, only one window can be opened, which may reduce the comfort of your sleep. Overall very pleasant stay, and I would definitely return in the future.

            The court yard just front of our lounge was shared with 3 rooms and tennis court was just front of our room too. Children were very exciting to play tennis and basket ball. Laundry was shared too ,and restricted rule was there. No soundproofing ,we had noisy night with next door. When we back from walking , the drape in living room was dropped down!! We were surprised with poor facilities.
