As The Gates Country Lodge is designed to offer guests peace and tranquillity, we are only able to accommodate children under 13 years of age if a party books the exclusive use of the lodge.

Cancellation Policy
A booking fee/deposit of $100 NZD is charged per room per night. Cancellations made within 30 days of your stay attract a charge of 50% of the total booking fee. Cancellations within 7 days of your stay attract a charge of 100% of the total booking fee. Naturally we will endeavour to rebook the space and if successful a refund will be made. We do however strongly recommend that our guests take out travel insurance to protect themselves against unexpected changes to their travel plans.

The well-being, comfort and safety of all our guests and staff is important to us, smoking is therefore not permitted in the lodge.

The Gates Country Lodge is surrounded by North Canterbury farm land and is home to numerous sheep and our two Burmese cats. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate your pets.
