The hosts are very friendly and helpful, the kitchen is well organised and perfectly tidy. Every room has its own storage in the fridge. I liked the bathrooms - especially the separate female one;-). Everything is spacious and comfortable, the rooms, the kitchen, the lounge and the car park. The lodge ist peaceful and quiet and close to the lake... More

It was a really nice stay in the Altamont Lodge. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. Everything was very clean and tidy. The kitchen was big and also the living room. They also have a very nice garden to relax. We loved our stay there and would always come back!

Very nice, super-clean rooms with a huge garden, spa pool and a large communal kitchen. The shared bathroom facilities were the best I've ever seen - very clean and well-maintained all day. The owners were always around for a quick chat and it was easy to feel that they are giving everything to please their guests. A notice board with... More

I only stayed at the Altamont for one night, but would have been happy setting up camp for a few days. As others have mentioned, the place has a ski lodge feel... wood panels, nice open lounge area, etc. Rooms are simple, but very comfortable. I didn't cook while I was there, but the huge, immaculate kitchen made me want... More

Stayed here for one night with my wife in Nov 2014. Overall, there was nothing horribly wrong with the accommodation, however, given the price I do not see why the lodge receives such high reviews on Tripadvisor. I would recommend staying here depending on your needs. Here are my thoughts: Service – Host was friendly and showed us around the... More

I have just had two nights at the lodge and was sad to leave. The hosts absolute made our stay and couldn't do enough for us. Wanaka was absolutely stunning but our stay was made so special by the welcome, the kindness and warmth we received. Rod even gave us a lift to the bus stop and offered lifts whenever... More

Th Altamont Lodge is a great place to stop overnight in a beautiful town. The facilities were clean and comfortable and our hosts were very friendly. This is a cut above your average backpackers and if you are happy to share facilities it is good value in an expensive town. 20 minutes walk into town gets you to many restaurants... More

This was one of the best places I stayed at in New Zealand. The place was squeaky clean, it has spacious common areas, a well-equipped kitchen, plenty of parking space, comfortable bed and most of all, terrific hosts. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

I rented a single room for a night. I love the wooden interior deco when I stepped into Altamont Lodge. Altamont Lodge is located approximately 20 minutes walk from Wanaka town and I took a while to locate the Lodge.It will be more convenient if you have a car. The owners are very friendly person and the male owner helped... More

It took a bit of searching to find out about this Lodge, but it was exactly what I was looking for and a perfect choice. It is just as advertised so there's no false expectations. Great value, great facilities, impeccably clean. The hosts were welcoming from the moment they answered the phone to my enquiry, and their friendly and helpful... More
