Altamont Lodge is a perfect stop for the budget but comfort conscious traveller. It's in a lovely peaceful location but still only a 30 minute easy walk into town (even pleasant on a cold winter's evening). The owners are friendly and chatty and provided lots of useful information on the area. The rooms are warm and of a good size.... More

Stayed for one night at this warm and clean lodge. The host Rod was very welcoming and happy to accommodate our request for a late check-out. He made sure we had everything we needed. The beds were comfy, showers powerful, everything was very clean and most of all it was nice and warm - important when you're in Wanaka for... More

In style very much like an alpine lodge but the very best I have ever been in. In every sense the cleanest, friendliest and most comfortable. The kitchen/dining facility quite amazing in its size, cleanliness and serviceability. We had a slight personal mishap just prior to our arrival and everything possible was done to have us square that away before... More

Pros: Like staying at your Mums. Con: like staying at your Mums. This was by far one of the cleanest places we stayed in our three weeks. The communal kitchen was lovely and I'd be happy cooking in it - compared to some other places we stayed. But that's because you're staying at Mum & Dads. Host/owner told hubby straight... More

We arrived as a group slightly early, very wet and cold. The owners were not quite ready but mad a huge effort to welcome and warm us and get us sorted as quickly as possible. Nice surroundings, great kitchen and lounge with sunny back yard. Good drying room and bedrooms were fine and quiet.Bit of a hike to town if... More

This lodge is really an upmarket backpackers lodge, with a range of different accommodation options, a kitchen, lounges and peaceful surroundings. Prices are good for Wanaka and the rooms are generously sized. Everything you need is there. The hosts are friendly and helpful.

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
