The Lomond Lodge met all our expectations. We were looking for something budget but not backpacker style. We are a bit past our travel phase of sleeping in dorm rooms. The Lomond Lodge had the best location, reviews and prices that we could find through various sites. We ended up booking on Agoda and paid about 130 NZ a night for a nice room with a lake view and a small kitchenette which was very nice for having breakfasts and take out dinners in our room. Lonely Planet lists this hotel as having some tired décor but this was not our experience. They must have remodeled because our room was very tastefully decorated and felt very new and clean. The room we had (#1) was very comfortable with a king sized bed and a small table and chairs overlooking the lake (no balcony). There was some traffic noise but nothing that interrupted our nights. The communal BBQ area is small but nice. We did not use the BBQ but it would be great if you were up for grilling your own food. There is also a guest laundry and very friendly reception. The website does state that there is wireless throughout the hotel. Note that this is not free and the paid service is often dependent on how many MB you use. If you plan to use Skype or upload photos to the Internet, buy the unlimited MB card. Also make sure you sign off each time you are finished using the Internet or your minutes will evaporate. The location was great! Located a very short walk to the center of town, only about 2 minutes! However, there is a short little hike up some stairs to get to the top of the hill that the hotel sits on, but was not a problem for us. Although we were not traveling with our children this time, this hotel would be fine for a family with small children. They also have bigger apartment style rooms that can accommodate families.
