What about some urgent replacement of the totaly worn out entrance door bottom sill? Not a good first impression and broken concrete tub top at entrance. Made very welcome. Thanks

Good choice if need to spend a night in the area
I had a nice stay at the Redwood Lodge in Methven in the middle of a trip from Nelson to Te Anau. The facilities are nice and clean and decorated with taste, and I even got a good breakfast, even though it was not mentioned at the time of the booking. If you need to spend a night in the area, this is quite a good choice.
