New Year's eve in Methven. We arrived very early with no pre booking. But nothing was a problem. An excellent studio room with a mountain view was found for us. The room was spacious and scrupulously clean. Huge bed with a spare single in the room also. Because renovations were underway, no evening meals in the dining room. Only two...

We stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom unit, with our 2 boys (6&4) while skiing at MT Hutt. Lovely spot with view of the mountains. Kitchen and other facilities well set up for a family. Gas fire heated the place rapidly. Very short drive into the main town and short drive to ski field. Wifi was intermittent and...

We stayed at Ski Time for three nights earlier this month in one of the standard rooms. As others have said, you can hear quite a bit of noise from other rooms but this didn't bother us too much. The rooms are also impressively clean and, while ours didn't have a TV, there's a nice lounge with a TV you...

Having travelled from Brisbane to ski and do a bit of sightseeing, I stayed two lodges in Methven. The first place was awesome, no problem. After a few days staying elsewhere I came back to Methven and stayed in SkiTime for one night (thank goodness). I was shown the room with a comment "this is a more economical room" $135NZ...

10 minute drive away from the bottom of Mount Hutt, perfect location with local shops/bars/restaurants being a 2 minute drive away. The lodge itself was accommodating, spacious and clean! Friendly staff and owners. 10/10 would recommend and return to Skitime, Methven.

This ranch style stone lodge has a small number basic rooms at the back of the restaurant (see photo). Room is not sound proof but other guests are considerate. The best thing about the lodge is the dining room with a roaring stone fire place. And the food is great too. There is a guest lounge with a large flat...

Stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed the very friendly boss and staff and brilliant food and service in the restaurant. Do however have to agree with the other reviewer who mentioned the VERY noisy rooms on the ground floor at the back of the main building. Of course they are the budget standard rooms, but didnt really need to be...

Great room. Comfortable bed. Heated bathroom floor. Fridge and kettle. Staff very welcoming. Food fantastic high quality. If like us you hire a car go four wheel drive to go up to the slopes. Also take snow chains. The road to mount hutt is an event in itself!
