"We only stayed one night here but wished it was longer. Such a beautiful house. We had a fabulous room with a great view. The breakfast was delicious. We wish Daphne and Philip all the best in the future. I am sure they are going to be very successful."

"Staying at Murchison Lodge was magical. We were welcomed with tea by a roaring log fire, in a comfortable sitting room and had delicious canapes before the evening meal. Next morning, after visiting the cows and sheep with Merve, Shirley took us on a walk to see the virtually unique natural flames and we were amazed that they have been alight since the 1920s. It was a truly thrilling experience and we wished we could have stayed longer in such tranquil surroundings where we were treated royally."

"Murchison Lodge is a lovely place in a wonderful setting. The home was warm and comfortable and the hospitality made you feel relaxed. We opted to have an evening meal which was good home cooked fare. We enjoyed taking the dog for a walk down to the river and looking at the stunning scenery. It really is in a beautiful setting. The local trading store had absolutely everything one needed. We were very appreciative of the free wifi and enjoyed our stay."

"WOW!! A wonderfully relaxing surprise in the middle of Kiwi-country paradise! Shirley and Merve have taken the B&B experience to a higher level. It could only have been better if Kali (their dog) could have brought me my drinks in the evenings. The lounge and bedrooms are all very well appointed and the utmost comfortable with modern appliances. So relaxing it was that twice I fell asleep in front of their fireplace... for hours. The landscaping, architecture, and interior decor are done with a keen eye for tranquility and balance with nature. All very pleasing and relaxing. Breakfast is sheer delight! Freshly made juices and homebaked breads to go with the already hearty spread .... Magnificent!! I especially enjoyed chatting over a glass or two of their own homemade spirits in the evening. Words don't begin to say enough about Shirley and Merve's gracious hospitality. The super-friendly personal attention and commitment to an overall experience is something that many B&Bs miss the mark on. Murchison Lodge B&B scores a perfect 10 in my book."
