The set up is perfect for a large group. with ample space for relaxing and a huge kitchen it really provides us with everything we need. The easy access and accessible shower, toilet and bedrooms make this Lodge perfect for a group with multiple disabled... More

We had a group of 26 stay at the Zulu Lodge and we were taken care of beautifully. The facilities are well maintained and great for a large group. We highly recommend it as a place to stay with teenagers and young people.

We stayed here for one night and it was very enjoyable. Stephanie the host- was so friendly.I rang to inform her that we would be late checking in and she said it was no problem that she would leave a note outside for us on where to find our room. It was great! Kitchen is fantastic. Very well set up... More

Old and dirty place. The 4-person room is tiny, the beds are very small, the carpet is old and the whole room smells like feet. Stay in YHA Wanaka instead. It's 100 times better than Albert Town Lodge and the room in YHA comes with your own bathroom and toilet.

Friendly and helpful managers, Darryl and Tania. I enjoy the days staying here very much! It is a relaxing place with great facilities and high level of cleanness. Hundreds of books, DVDs, large TV and board games, always having fun and never feel boring. Surrounding areas are beautiful and the location is good. Lovely dog, fat cat and chicken too!... More

We arrived to a warm, clean & inviting place to stay. The children had a great time tearing about the large lawn, riding their bikes around Albert Town & swinging on the rope swing. We also very much enjoyed the managers Darryl & Tania, who again were very useful with their local knowledge. There is some great biking tracks from... More

We stayed in Albert Town Lodge when we first reached Otago. We pulled in late at night after a long drive in search of a place to rest our heads and call our base for a week. Without a booking, we were still warmly welcomed by the owner Tania. I was pleased that despite It being nearly 9pm she still... More

My boyfriend and I booked a night in this lodge during January because (I confess) there was no place any more within Wanaka (due to a sport event). This lodge suffers from its remotness from downtown (thats why it is not the first lodge advised by the iSite), but we were so lucky and happy to discover this place!! It... More
