Quiet, clean room, a bit dated, a kettle is the only breakfast facility. TV reception is poor, dishwashing liquid would be handy, no plates, no table, no coffee plunger, no microwave - a basic motel room.

We stayed here one night as part of a longer trip. Comfortable and clean motel unit, great shower. Lovely private terrace with beautiful view. Unfortunately unusable because of the infamous sand flies. Good restaurant. Perfect location to walk to Lake Rotoitîto for a hike. Water taxi will take you to the top of the lake. Happy to come back.

Whilst the Gardens surrounding the lodge are well kept and lead to some interesting scenic walks the standard room lodges are in need of a good update . Whilst clean the decor gives the appearance of grubbiness and the dated bathroom did not exactly invite use . The tea/ coffee making not actually helped by the kettle not fitting under...

St. Arnaud is a small place with not many choices for accommodations. We decided to stay here because it was convenient to the walk we wanted to do on Mt. Robert. We were happy with the accommodations. Wifi worked well, bed was reasonably comfortable and the food in the restaurant was very good. It's close enough to walk to the...

Alpine lodge is situated in the heart of the Nelson Lakes National Park and a perfect base to explore the area. Alpine lodge is aptly named and just what you would expect to find in an alpine area, rustic wooden and wood lined buildings.Our apartment was quite roomy, clean and comfortable. The two bedrooms one with a double bed and...

We stayed overnight twice and were happy both times. First occasion room was more modern with newer inclusions. Second time in an older section but still good. Weather was hot when we were there and no real way to cool room down which was quite warm when we arrived. Opened the windows and things cooled off as evening approached. Had...

The Alpine Lodge is typical of a small private European skiing hotel with wooden buildings etc. The rooms are clean and comfortable but rather dull and boring with rather dated bathrooms etc. The rooms could really do with a bit of investment to brighten everything up and make them look more modern. It seems like it's stuck a bit in...

The room was clean and basic. It had a queen and twin downstairs and two twins in the loft. St. Arnaud is very small, but is quaint and picturesque. The bed was comfortable and the staff very friendly. There is a bar/restaurant attached to the hotel.
