Fly Fishing Lodge Accommodation - Hanmer Springs, New Zealand

Riverview Lodge is a unique lodge offering 4 double bedrooms for guests, with either King or Queen beds, your own modern private bathroom, and ideal for  Exclusive group book outs.


 Also there are large lounge areas, a stone log fire, a Pool room, satellite Sky TV, laundry facilities, and free Wi Fi for your use. The Lodge nestles on a plateau overlooking the beautiful Hanmer Springs valley of mountains, rivers and rural farmland. It has large established and spacious gardens, a large outdoor deck, all with these spectacular panoramic views. A true relaxing and tranquil atmosphere.

Wake up to the song of the Bellbird and watch them at the bird feeder having their breakfast, lunch and dinner! The rural setting allows you to see the lambs frolicking around, or the calves lazing in the field. It also allows you utmost privacy.

Riverview Lodge employs a chef, offering you scrumptious cuisine after your busy, fun day. Dietary preferences can be catered to, but prior notice is always appreciated, to ensure the correct food is ordered in.

Whether you come for accommodation, with or without the combination of outdoor persuits, there is something for everyone to enjoy each day. The Lodge is only 5 miles from Hanmer Springs which is one of New Zealand's most popular Spa Resort towns. Refer to Activities page.

We offer you “A home away from home” - a place to relax and enjoy your holiday vacation in style and comfort.


Just returned from my trip "downunder" and wanted to report. I found the Gemmells to be absolutely delightful!!! Robin is the defined hostess and John is one of if not the best guide I have ever had.

I found John to be outstanding and I can tell you that I learned more from this man in 2 days on the river than I have been able to teach myself over the past 20 + years of fly-fishing!!! I affectionately refer to him now as the "Fish Whisperer".

I will definitely try to go back in the future and would whole heartedly recommend him to others!!
