Reviewed 9 February 2012

No problems here. Enjoyed 3 nights. Brought brekkie & lunch supplies, although some guests also cooked their dinners in the well equipped kitchen/diner.

30mins free wifi each day, and cheap top-ups.

Recommended.

The lodge is in a fantastic location and is great value for money. Compared to The Hermitage which is grossly overpriced, the room was spacious, modern and clean. Upstairs there is a kitchen and dining room which is well equipped. I would suggest that you bring your groceries in from Tekapo or Twizel as there isn't much available within the village. Overall, this is a wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the ground floor if you want views of Mt Cook.

This lodge is ideal for the region. Only a 2 minute walk from the Hermitage, but with views just the same of Aoraki Mt Cook. The room was very comfortable and clean. Reception were very helpful (and were the first people to know that I proposed to my girlfriend on the Hooker Valley walk). Very pleasant and great location for an enjoyable stay in the Aoraki region. Well done!

We spent two nights at this nice little cosy lodge. Our studio room that they think is the "best rooms in the house" has an amazing view of Aoraki/Mt Cook. In fact the view was “too good” with changing colours of the snow filled mountains with angle of the sun – we kept on looking at the mountains when we were in the room. We did lot of activities in the day time, but sunrise and sunset views from the room were incredible.

A central place and only a very short walk to the magnificent new Visitor Centre and the Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre. Bookings for all the activities (scenic flights, boat trips, star gazing tour etc) can be organised at the lodge. The stay at the lodge also gives you discounts to the local restaurants.

The room, kitchenette and bathroom all are very clean and comfortable. However, the main and unforgettable feature of the stay is the staff – they are magnificent and went out of their way to help our holiday a memorable one. They assisted me organising this surprise holiday and present for my wife. Thanks so much to Lynne, Verena, Adele, Tony and all at the Lodge.

Reviewed 30 December 2011

We spent two nights here and overall, had a great stay. We were pleased to find plenty of car parks available for those who have hired cars, with some larger parts available for camper vans etc.

The staff were friendly and helpful and happy to answer any queries. Although the rooms are very basic, they are clean and practical. A highlight for us was the communal kitchen and living area which was a social hive of activity, particularly at dinner time. We met some great people and were able to swap travel stories (and even some dinner!)

There are many walking trails close to the lodge, with plenty of maps and guides available. Mt Cook is stunning and only a short easy walk.

Only downfall is the lack of restaurant options available. There is a very overpriced general store where you can buy basic ingredients for dinner and an expensive hotel which offers buffet dinners. From memory there is also a small pub/restaurant.

Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay and we would happily recommend to singles, couples or families (very family friendly!)

Oh, and make sure you check out the Mt Cook museum.
