We stayed in the elegant garden apartment for 4 nights and have never experienced such 5 star hospitality. What you see in the photos is really what you get - the garden apartment is truly a luxurious and beautifully decorated apartment, with great furnishings that make your heart melt. Jen and Mark have created an exceptional home in beautiful surroundings. John and I were always well fed with delicious baking, and a wonderful breakfast (not to mention the lovely pavlova). I would recommend this lodge over any 5 star hotel as you will get completely spoilt and looked after. We really found it hard to go back home as Lauchlan Lodge is truly an unforgettable paradise, and we would genuinely love to go back.
Thank you again!
Dear Jen and Mark
We would like to take this opportunity to thank both of you for your kindness and hospitality. Jen truly is the nicest person we have met in New Zealand!
We will never forget your exquisite cuisine and especially your delicious Pavlova. It was just wonderful! I can’t yet believe why we went to a fine dining restaurant when we first arrived, if we had have just known!

Thank you for the wonderful stay. We arrived in wet soggy weather to a wonderful warm reception with hot tea, coffee and cookies. What a delight! Such a restful setting and an exceptional breakfast; so many delicious things - fresh fruit, bacon, eggs sauages etc. We were full for the day!
Many Thanks for your hospitality and kindness making our stay in Napier so memorable.

Wow! What a gem in every sense of the word. I think of all the places I've stayed and this Lodge has an intimacy and attention to detail that the best hotels find hard to deliver. Love pours from every detail that hosts Jenny and Mark do so naturally. Congratulations -I would recommend this to everyone that cares about excellence.
Thank you for sharing your amazing hospitality with us. I have stayed at several "Luxury" hotels in Europe and I am delighted to say that Lauchlan Lodge raises the bar! Your breakfasts in particular topped what I had at the Dorchester or MayFair in London! I adore these memories, truly you have created an accommodation gem. Can't wait to spread the word! Lots of Love Jacqui Watson.
