Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   We have been to Huka Lodge twice and going back again this year. We have experienced different luxury lodges in Australia and New Zealand, no doubt Huka Lodge is the finest, the property is beautiful and all the guests are treated like royalty. Loved the amazing fine dining experience created by Frog chef and the team. It was really lovely that one of the team member Dennis Hay remembered us and gave us a very warm welcome during our second visit.
