We stayed for two nights and our room was spotless as were the communal bathroom and shower rooms. ,kitchen facilities were super. Nolene and rod were very welcoming and helpful. The lodge is great for walking into Wanaka or driving further afar to do day hikes in mt. Aspiring.

We stayed with our 6 month old daughter and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating! The facilities were exceptionally clean and the kitchen was well equipped! The hosts were full of helpful information about the local area and the walk to Rocky Mountain via Diamond Lake was fantastic!

I couldnt agree more with the rave reviews. This place is really a cut above the rest - spotlessly clean and you have your own space in the refridgerator and storage. Rod provided many helpful suggestions and made every effort to make our stay delightful. the kitchen and the common living spaces are simply wonderful. There was another group who... More

This place is truly a 'gem' and I use the term in all authenticity and very sparingly. Rod and his wife are exceptional people and very helpful and friendly from the very beginning. Secondly, the room and the whole living area and kitchen are like a small boutique ski lodge. This is in no shape way or form a backpacker... More

I was pretty disappointed at the rude treatment we received. Some guests complained about the 'noise' we were making. Completely unfair. While we did come in late, not one of us had said a single word and we had been in the building for less than a minute before some lunatic came running out to tell us off. In the... More

From my arrival till the time that I left they couldn't have been more warm and welcoming. They offered me rides to the wedding I was going to and to a friends house when I was leaving. The facilities are fantastic and excellent value for money. The rooms were neat tidy and well maintained. Couldn't have had a better place... More

As university students, we just needed a cheap place to stay but were blown away by the quality of Altamont Lodge. Fantastic facilities! Kitchen is spacious and immaculate, cooking was enjoyable. A beautiful lounge area with fireplace and a stereo system. Jacuzzi, tennis court, BBQ, drying room, laundry. What made the whole experience even better was the hospitality of the... More
