Accomodation and food were great, but the owners were very difficult to deal with for our group organiser. The guy was either grumpy or had a weird sense of humour. He didn't want to know about any thing to do with food. Closed the bar after the rugby unless someone bought a drink, no polite comments like last orders please.... More

Hi Pat, thanks for taking the time to review Mountain Valley Adventure Lodge on Trip Advisor.

We got a deal from Grabone and stayed for two nights. Even though the weather wasn't that great, my partner and I enjoyed every moment. We went water rafting for the first time in the drizzle and loved it. We contemplated not to do it as it was cold and raining until Doug the owner said the weathers not important.... More

This place is perfect if you want to relax, get out of the city and just stay away from internet and phones. To celebrate our fours years my partner and I bought a cheap grabone deal for Mountain Valley Adventure Lodge which covered two nights accommodation, an hour horse riding and late checkout for two for $169. When I rang... More

We picked up this deal on Grabone and stayed in September. We were the only people there that weekend and it was amazing. We stayed in a Chalet over looking the river and valley. The toilet/showers were about 6 metres away and were kept spotless. Our room was also very clean and tidy. The cooked meals were amazing and great... More

A perfect location for family from both ends of the island to meet. Simple but absolutely appropriate accommodation for the get away from it location. Facilities and activities excellent. Hosts could not be more obliging. Ideal for extended family get togethers where you can have as much time together as you wish but also enough space to have your own... More

A fishing buddy and I stayed at MVL last weekend when Cyclone Luisi was due. We were to be a party of 8 but 6 got "cyclone fear" and pulled out. The cyclone didn't arrive and we had a fabulous 2.5 days fishing in the area. Some great trout caught and also some long range releases! We stayed in the... More

Stayed here for the Mission Estate concert. Idyllic spot nestled in a valley alongside the beautiful Mohaka river. Basic accommodation but perfectly adequate. Home cooked meals and great hospitality from Doug and Julie. Several outdoor activities on offer which we will be returning to have a go at.

Beautiful, peaceful oasis with all sorts of adventure activities and very well-priced accommodation. I booked a horse trek and overnight cabin here for a lightning road trip with a friend visiting NZ. If we'd been able to change our bus out of Napier the next day, we would have come back for another night, it was like a drink of... More

What a wonderful spot. One of the best horse treks of my life, followed by swimming in a perfect mountain river, incredible home made food and wine, and retiring to a super comfy lodge in a tree filled spot by the water.
