Very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent service. The lodge was top notch and in the most beautiful bay. We were only sorry our stay was so short and we didn’t have time to truly experience everything it had to offer. Will be back for sure

My wife and I had 2 days at Lochmara and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The peace and quiet was fabulous and the views are stunning. We enjoyed lying in the hammocks staring up at the stars with no "light noise' and had some great meals in the restaurant. The whole team are friendly and very helpful. As their little saying goes: "once discovered, never forgotten". We'll be back at some point to enjoy again.

Lochmara Lodge is a beautiful lodge with stunning grounds. Our “Indulgent Night for Two” package included a beautiful room with a balcony and water view (well worth it) and reserved time in the Bath House. The bath was luxurious and relaxing. The restaurant is competitive and the food very, very good. Owners Chris and Nicki are very present and hospitable and staff members Jess, Liam and Bo were all terrific. In the Picton office where you pick-up the water shuttle, Paula is the best!

This is a magical place, where you can get away from the pace of life and enjoy relaxing and watching the world go by. There are lovely walks and lots of interesting little nooks and crannies to explore. The staff are friendly and helpful. We loved our visit - thank you!

Nice place...friendly staff...would recommend for an overnight stay but wouldnt recommend longer...focus is more on day trippers from Picton not on those paying top dollar to stay in the accommodation. The water taxi is charged on top of accommodation which should be included if you are staying I feel, as there is no road to drive there... Room service doesnt get done till very late in the day and we had to chase up towels, toilet paper etc. Maybe not enough staff but maybe 2 seperate staff groups would work better...one for day trippers one focused on accommodation. Overal a relaxing stay in a comfortable room.

Omg. Don’t get the cheeseburger at the restaurant down by the beach. It took 30 mins to make. It consisted of: - Ciabatta bread (literally not designed to be a burger bun. It was too bready) - one patty - 1 slice of unmelted cheddar cheese - 2 mini slivers of pickles - no flavor Plus, 10 fries (not even exaggerating, it was literally 10 slices of potatoes) The worse burger I’ve ever eaten in my American life. Everyone needs to be aware. It was also $29

We recently walked the Queen Charlotte Sounds over five days as a family and choose to make the 1 hour walk down off the track and stay the last night at Lochmara. So glad we did, our children loved this place. There is so much for them to do here; from the animal tour, exploring the extensive grounds, through to using the kayaks/stand-up paddle boards in their sheltered bay. The food was excellent with a wide range on the menu and the staff were incredibly accommodating with any requests. Then to top it all off, the soak in the bath house relieved the aches and pains before our last 18km on the track. Thanks to Chris and Nicki for your hospitality and the kids voted you guys #1 of all the places we stayed.

Over the past 2 months we have taken people we support with disabilities over to 'Lochmara' to enjoy the beautiful surroundings & to enjoy a meal with the stunning outlook from the restaurant. I must say all the staff are amazing & so helpful if we needed help at any time. They went out of their way to make our day out even more enjoyable - thank you so much : )
