Stayed here for one night only as part of a Haka snow tour in August. I had a room to myself which was above the kitchen and by the office and a private room. First up...the bedding was dirty. I think the sheets had actually been washed but were covered in hairs, the pillows smelt of use and the quilt... More

The start and finish of a fabulous adventure with 'Haka AdventureTours'. I stayed a couple of nights prior to joining the tour and again at the end after the tour finish. Nicola was professional and helpful in booking the tour and additional activities, as well as suggestions for activities during my stay in Christchurch. The Lodge is close to a... More

We only stayed here for one night but found it to be extremely clean with lots of cooking facilities. The rooms were comfortable and quiet, and the shared bathrooms had plenty of hot water. It is not particularly close to Christchurch but it depends what you need as there are bus stops not too far away. The staff were friendly... More

A little far out of the city, but managable with buses... Amazing friendly staff... Super comfy beds... Gorgeous wood fire to sit in front of during frosty winters - would be nice if the fire was on longer, but no biggie.... Would definitely stay again if I needed some where :D

Hi, Thanks very much for your kind review. I'm glad you had a good time at Haka Lodge. I'm also a huge fan of the wood fire in winter. It certainly creates a nice cosy atmosphere. Hopefully you'll get to stay longer next time your in town! Kind Regards Lodge Management More

After travelling around New Zealand on the Haka Tour, we actually opted to return to Christchurch to stay back in the Haka Lodge for the next 7 nights. We had lovely service, and were given a private room when they had one available. I did come down one evening and found several people without beds sleeping on the couches in... More

Hi Holly, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, and had good service from our friendly staff! In regards to the people sleeping on couches in common areas, this is not something that we allow and are very strict on. We are owned by Haka Tours who operate guided... More

Once discovered its a great lodge, very homely especially lounge area with log burner blazing away. Twin room was immaculate... More

Stayed in a private room, which was cosy and well decorated. Had a good panel heater. Balcony was cool. Located out of town, but transport links seemed to be good (we had a hire car). Communal areas comfortable and kitchen was well equipped. Only two bathrooms, but these were clean and showers good. Perhaps we stayed at Haka Lodge at... More

I arrived in New Zealand from London without a reservation and called from my hire car to book tonight. Staff are helpful and friendly. Communal shower is spotlessly clean with plenty of hot water. My single bedroom is comfortable, clean and is fitted with a large flat screen TV. For an overnight stay on a budget I cannot fault this... More
