Cabot Lodge is one of the finest hotels in the world. I say that as a frequent traveler to many different destinations. It's location is spectacular, overlooking Lake Manapouri in New Zealand. It is on the 2000 acre Cathedral Peaks Station that has 4500 heads of sheep, 1500 deer and 500 cattle (facts we learned touring the property with the extremely knowledgeable owner, Breidi, who with her husband, Brad, operate the lodge). Our suite was beautiful. The amenities were all luxurious. Brad's cooking is excellent (we had lamb for dinner). I can't recommend Cabot Lodge more highly. It's not only a great stay, it is also a fantastic experience. Being close to Doubtful Sound is only the icing on the cake.

Everything was truly excellent about our stay: the food, the accommodations, the service, and friendliness of the owners and staff. Through the years, we have stayed at a number of 5-star hotels. This stay was, by far, the best! I should also add that the views were truly breathtaking.
