Kinloch Wilderness Retreat, hotel in Glenorchy

Located by the shores of Lake Wakatipu, Kinloch Wilderness Retreat offers a variety of rooms from dormitory rooms to Heritage queen rooms.

Amazing, isolated location. Appreciate how they cater to all price points - I was in a dorm, but still delightful. Bathrooms were great, warm showers with soap. Kitchen was under renovations but I’m sure it’ll be great too and they have a few picnics tables that would be fantastic in the summer. Tons of amazing hikes near by. Hot tub was out of this world nice. No better place to stay if you want to do some big hikes but not camp

    Small town. Great general store.

    Small town. Great general store. Cafe kitchens dont open till 12 so its just coffee n cabinet food till then. Epic views and good walks to do. Ate at Mr Glen's Taphouse - great coffee and cabinet food. Recommend walk around boardwalk and lagoon. Need a 4WD if going to Paradise - river crossings.

    The Glenorchy wharf is a perfect little spot to enjoy some local beer from the pub that sells takeaway bottles! Absolutely perfect, we loved it. Just relaxed on the wharf and had couple drinks and a walk alongside the lagoon area. Lovely coffee at the local general store! Awesome little local pub and just a beautiful spot to relax for a night if in between places and wanting to chill before the chaotic Queenstown

    Glenorchy was a convenient place to start and finish our tramping trips. It is a pleasant town on its own merits, but for this trip it was just an accommodation and meal place to start and finish our recreation in the backcountry

    We are glad that we stayed in Glenorchy and not in crowded...

    We are glad that we stayed in Glenorchy and not in crowded Queenstown. It was easy to get around and has a great small-town vibe. We hiked the Mt. Judah trail and in peak season, we only saw 3 people and a dog. The view of Lake Wakatipu and Glenorchy was breathtaking. To compare, we hiked Roy’s Peak in Wanaka and saw at least 100 people on the trail, and while we did not go to the very top, I think that Mt. Judah was much prettier and interesting with the old scheelite processing shed and views of a forested river gorge. We also had a chance to see part of the Glenorchy Horse Races which was very festive and entertaining. The Paradise Zipline adventure is just a few minutes from Glenorchy and we agree that it was definitely one not to miss. The guides were safety-oriented, so you are in good hands. We were also treated to a nature talk as we hiked uphill a short distance through a beech-dominated forest. A series of 8 ziplines zigzag across and through a spectacular forested river gorge. Awesome!

    We stayed in the lodge and immediately became enamored with its history and charm. Restoration was ongoing during our stay, but wasn't a bother at all. We were able to enjoy the brand-new wallpaper, exceptional bedding, and two enormous shared bathrooms. The water cart was always fresh outside our room, and the hot drink station was terrific in the morning. Breakfast was delicious, eaten while looking out over the lake with sunrise peeking over the mountains. That was magical.

    I normally don’t do many reviews but I thought I would add some comments.My review is not aimed directly at the hotel but purely giving my opinion about the way I viewed my stay which may well be very different to others. The property is clearly a high quality build and no expense has been spared on the Ecco detail.

    Beautiful surroundings, attentive staff, outstanding view of the mountains and lake Wakatipu. It’s a short 3 minute drive to Glenorchy town. You could walk but it is along a highway. If you get a chance, drive the extra 30 minutes to paradise and then another 20 minutes through the Ford’s and back country. JUST WOW

    Location. Cleanliness and facilities . The apartment was warm and comfortable and it was very cold when I was staying. It's a beautiful area. Take everything you are going to need as there are no shops and the general store was closed when I tried to visit. Glenorchy walkway and lake sylvan walk are recommended.

    Location is unparalleled. Hosts are great and the lodge is steeped in history. Accommodation in the Heritage Lodge were lovely and bathrooms freshly renovated- top notch. Restaurant was excellent and they accommodated a veg option at last minute in the fixed menu, and it was delicious!

    Easy booking and arrival, super clean and convenient to be able to stay in Glenorchy for an event. Very Old but an effort has been made on presentation in the room. Appreciate that they've stayed open during a very quiet time during Covid and the option to stay is still available.

    The Eco Lodge is a very comfortable accommodation in an amazing location. The rooms and common spaces are all very well maintained. Staff were very kind and helpful; we especially liked the free morning yoga. Breakfast and dinner were very solid, but nothing to write home about.
