The Students all had a great time staying at Dusky Lodge and enjoyed interacting with the other guests. We have recommended other schools book in and stay at Dusky Lodge.

Wonderful staff, always friendly and accommodating for Haka Tour groups! Thanks to Claire and the team for always being patient with our constant presence during a usually busy summer period. The rooms are always clean and super comfy now with the soft refurbishments, I’ve seen great improvements over the past two years – keep up the good work. Dusky is a great place to stay in Kaikoura!
