Abel Tasman Lodge is a non-smoking hotel. New Zealand has a strict non-smoking law in regard to smoking in public buildings. Please respect our non-smoking policy in all lodge buildings. There are serious fines which we are required to enforce. Sorry smokers!

If you get a bit carried away in the rooms and it requires extra cleaning, we may need to charge an extra fee. Sorry.

Payment Policy
To confirm your booking, we require a payment card (Mastercard or Visa) valid for the period of your stay including long number, expiry date and three digit security code.

We operate a ‘Pay When You Stay’ policy. Except in accordance with our Cancellation Policy as outlined below

Check in
At check in, we ask for a copy of your valid payment card. We do not take any money from this card unless requested at the time. We also ask for a email address, if we don’t already have this, just in case we need to contact you re lost property – you’d be surprised!

Cancellation Policy
Cancellations within 14 days of, or failure to arrive on, confirmed arrival date will be liable for 100% of the booking.

Reductions to length of stay within 14 days of confirmed arrival date will be liable for 100% of the agreed booking. This also applies to early check out.

‘No shows’ will be charged 100% of the applicable rate of the total stay.

Your payment card will not be charged unless you fail to check in on, or you cancel within 14 days of, confirmed arrival date.

Due to our intimate size, any cancellation affects us significantly. We do recommend that you have travel insurance.

14 days means (14 days from date in New Zealand.

Extra People
Extra person charges may apply where relevant. Children 3 and under are not charged under the extra person charges.

Child Policy
Children under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a legal guardian or parent if staying at the Abel Tasman Lodge.

We’ve done our best to translate this website into various languages. A couple of languages we have asked native speakers to help us. But in general we have used Google. Therefore we won’t be held responsible for any language mistakes you find in non-KIWI (i.e. English) languages.
