We stayed at Ski Time for a ski holiday in June and were lucky enough to arrive for three days of full skiing at Mount Hutt. Our room was really comfortable, with plenty of space. We had a stunning view of Mount Hutt out over the front of the lodge. It was incredibly clean and was serviced impeccably throughout our... More

Ski Time was a cute place with friendly staff and lovely warm fire places. The only thing missing was a TV in our room, which would only have been nice as I was sick for a few days and didn't want to disturb the other guests in the common areas. There was a good book selection which kept me entertained.... More

We were 2 families staying in a 3 bedroom apartment. The apartment was clean, modern and well stocked with everything we needed. We found the management to be very accommodating and helpful and they gave us an extra bed at no cost so we could all fit in. Unfortunately the winds were too strong in the mountain when we were...

Had a great couple of nights at Ski Time in Methven - fantastic lodge style accommodation but very family friendly. Fantastic food and service from their restaurant and very reasonable pricing as well

Stayed in a studio as a stop over heading back to Christchurch. Room was really nice and comfortable, location on edge of town was very quiet and in walking distance back to town for eating/shops etc. Breakfast in the room was great as it allows for an early start and the overall service was very good. Could recommend this to... More

Methven is lucky enough to have a great choice of dining experiences for a small rural town thanks to the winter business generated from the ski field. The town has done well to generate a strong summer trade over the years and from our last visit in September to Ski Time these guys are at the top of their game... More

Villas are brandnew and gorgeous. Never in our life had we come across a heated mirror that clears it of steam so you can shave right after your shower! Everything is totally thought through and superb quality. Great kitchen. Very friendly owners, very quiet.

My sister and I stayed here for two nights in December 2012 in a (I think) newly completed studio apartment separated from the main lodge. For the price the room and inclusions were second to none - modern room, double and single bed, free wifi, continental breakfast in room (cereal, bread, various spreads, yoghurt, etc.) We arrived late at night...

Was in Methven overnight and this place was recommended to me. Great choice. Had a fillet steak, which was nice and thick. Asked for it rare, but it came out medium rare - but it was so thick and juicy it didn't matter. The potatoes, mushrooms and said set the steak off to perfection. Dessert was less impressive - it...
