Stayed here for a couple of nights whilst exploring the local area with family. Easy to book (via booking.com) great welcome and attentive host. Very clean room that was cleverly set up for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. Also provided secure storage for mountain bikes.

We stayed here for one night as a last minute trip to see the mountain. The room was clean, well equipped, and in good condition. It also had a great view. Highly recommended for families needing safe and comfortable lodging from which to explore the area.

The accommodation is fairly basic but perfectly adequate and very clean. The hosts were friendly and helpful. We were delayed coming back from our bike ride but they were happy for us to shower etc before leaving. Lovely view of the mountain from our room.

Located in the centre of town with easy access to the ski fields. The restaurant is one of the best around with a friendly atmosphere. The rooms are clean comfortable and spacious. There is plenty of hot water and the staff are very helpful. The lodge is private and secure. I would highly recommend The Hobbit in both summer and... More

Good sized bathroom and bedrooms. It was a pity that the 2 bed with kitchen facilities wasn't available but there was a separate kitchen for us to use. Very clean. Very good heating facilities. Drying room was really handy. Owners were very welcoming. I'll definitely go back again.

Took a punt and were very pleasantly surprised at the basic but comfortable set up which for the money is great. Four young kids aged between 9 and 1 and no complaints (all tired from skiing though!). Really clean accommodation and warm and cosy. Spa pool a welcome feature for all. New manager since April who was very helpful. Bottom... More

We stayed one night in the lodge, the rooms here are very basic and the walls were quite thin, but it was very cheap. Also the rooms were quite cold. Great location, within walking distance of town. Very clean and tidy.

We stayed at the lodge for just one night over Easter. We took a wrong turn on the way down from Auckland and ended up half way to New Plymouth, I called the lodge twice to apologise and we arrived shortly after seven. I was a bit miffed to see that their office hours were till 9pm, so it shouldn’t... More

Belated review, but would like to thank the hosts for making our ski trip a brilliant experience. The hosts were very knowledgable of the local area and was able to answer all our travel queries. Room was neat and tidy, facilities new and in tip top condition. Spa pool was fantastic. The hosts were attentive and solution driven. Our first... More

We only stayed a night and Maxine on reception was helpful. The room was basic but ticked all the boxes. We were even given 2 hours free internet. It's close to the centre of town but further away enough to be totally quiet.
