Bad attitude of the owners, it seems that after the booking the customers doesn’t interest her any more.

Even though this is anonymous we know exactly which guest this is and they didn't come and stay. We had a call from Expedia the day before their due arrival to say they needed to cancel due to a changed flight and we advised there is no refund at this stage. The guest then didn't cancel, though then said they tried to get here but the road was closed. The road was opened 2 weeks previously after the flooding, and all our guests have been arriving without hitch. As this failed and they hadn't cancelled their booking they still have the right to post a review which they have. We love what we do, though need people to understand that our location means we don't have passing last trade like e.g. Queenstown, to fill last-minute cancellations, so our cancellation policy is 7 days. We wish these guests peace. See you all at Kinloch another time.

I have never been bitten so badly in my life, even after applying copious amounts of insect repellent. The Wotif site didn't warn us about shared bathrooms. There was no cancellation available, even 2 months out.

Apologies that you didn't enjoy your stay, however guests do have to take some responsibility to read about properties to make sure it's a good fit for them, suspect you would have been happier in town judging by this review. We have no control over the sandflies and we sell insect repellent that was created in this valley, so it definitely works, and provide it free to restaurant guests. Our automated emails to guests and our website state that we have sandflies, we make no secret of it. I have just looked at our wotif listing, which we cannot edit as it's created from information in Expedia, and it clearly states under About this property "Bathrooms are shared." Our cancellation policy is a fee of 10% of the booking up to 7 days before your stay, after that it's 100% of the booking due to our remote location, therefore you had plenty of time to cancel had you wished to do so.

Kinloch Lodge is a unique experience, not only because of its history and heritage, but also of its comfortable rooms and beds, but the extremely tasty menu in the restaurant. The position of the premises on the start of Lake Wakatipu makes it an one of the most pristine, picturesque places that I have stayed in in New Zealand. If walking is your thing then Kinloch is the place to start, with walking tracks up through Mt Bonpland behind the lodge or up the great river delta. Kudos.
