Amazing place to stay. Location less than 2km from town centre. Clean & very organised. Great kitchen if you wanted to cook. Bed very comfortable. Excellent showers, plenty of hot water & good water pressure. The welcome from Noelene was fantastic. Excellent value for money. I couldn't find fault with this place.

Thank you! This has been the most enjoyable 3 nights of our entire month trip around NZ. Location is wonderful, so close to town for walking, cycling and driving. Many great hikes at the doorstep. The lodge is so peaceful and quiet, we feel completely rested after our stay even though the days were jam packed. The staff are beautiful.... More

We had a group of 18 stay for Christmas and it was perfect. The rooms are basic and have a shared bathroom but they're comfortable and very clean. The kitchen is great, even when catering for a big group. A little out of town but close enough to walk in. Plus it's a beautiful walk down to the river and... More

We had a great stay for 2 nights. The hosts were friendly and helpful. It's a short 3-4 minute drive to the town centre. The place had a lovely cosy feeling, wooden wall panels, comfortable beds etc. Fantastic facilities, best equipped kitchen we have seen in NZ, large kitchen, large lounge, outdoor seating, washing machine (4 dollars), drier, clothes line,...

Having stayed in quite a few of these types of properties in the past few weeks I would like to say this one definetly has the best equipped kitchen, and the whole building is lovely and warm. It's a pity the bedrooms let it down, the walls are particularly thin and we could here conversations clearly through both sides, fortunately... More

The managers Noline & Rod were the *sweetest* & most welcoming couple. The room was clean & was a great value. The bathrooms & kitchen were also very clean & well organized. I loved soaking in their free hot tub. They also lent me a bike & helmet. Wanaka is a GORGEOUS town, & this was a fantastic place to... More

Stayed for one night. Couple who run the lodge were very friendly and super helpful. Nice clean rooms with large kitchen and lounge area. Well heated and hot water for the showers. Very good for during the cold winter nights. Less than a 5 min drive away from the centre of town.

This is a great budget stay for families or Backpackers... Very cheap... It is a private lodge that has rooms for rent if they are not full & the shareholders who are staying are very welcoming & full of information about the local area & where ski or what to do.... Highly recommend it

I was staying here for two weeks and it was a very nice experience. Everything is perfectly clean, and all the lodge is always warm. Rod and Noeline are really friendly people, thanks for everything. I really enjoyed my days in Altamont Lodge. Ps: There is a beautiful fireplace in the lounge.

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
