Creating an unforgettable Cambridge experience
Opening in early 2018, Podium Lodge was founded by the Brian Perry Charitable Trust.
Recognising a niche for our sports-driven community, the Perry Family saw an opportunity to create something special. They thought; hey, wouldn’t it be nice to have a fun place to stay to share our passion and create memorable experiences for Cambridge visitors?
So, here we are!
Our ambition and aspiration
The vision of Podium Lodge was to create a one-of-a-kind accommodation experience. One that thrived on a love for our region, sport and community.
Designed with an ‘Olympic Village’ feel in mind, Podium Lodge is a place for visitors to enjoy the spirit of Cambridge – from cyclists and sports teams, to schools, families and independent travellers.
Since 1976, our founders have instilled a sense of connection and support throughout the Cambridge and wider Waikato community.
Now, we are honored to play a part in this. At Podium Lodge, we aspire to make a meaningful difference in our community. To nurture, to grow, to connect; we are more than just a lodge.
As a member of the Brian Perry Charitable Trust, 100% of our profits go towards our community.
By staying at Podium Lodge, you are involved in something bigger – a charity, a community, a like-minded group of sports-enthusiasts.
Here are just a few of the community projects
that we are proud to be a part of:
- Te Awa River Ride
- RIDE, New Zealand’s Cycling Festival
- Perry Pool
- Perry Community Water Sports Centre
Celebrating our region
Our relationship with the Cambridge and Waikato community lies at the heart of everything we do.
We like to think of our staff and guests as a small community of their own, so we passionately celebrate our region in any way we can – from accommodation to packages to events – we ensure your stay is a memorable and unique one.
So who are we?
We’re a growing community, we're a supportive, passionate team, we’re an opportunity-driven lodge. And who knows, we may even be an inspiration to the next Olympic gold medalist.
