Myself and 3 friends stayed at this wonderful place during the end of July to the start of August. We got the 2 bedroom apartment which was definitely more than what we expected! Very nice, clean, modern, cozy and had a few awesome things that made the stay more worth it! The staff were very helpful, nice and welcoming. Ski... More

My wife and I stayed at Ski Time for a week in early August 2015 for a snowboarding trip to Mount Hutt. The staff were extremely tentative and knowledgeable. We initially booked a standard room which was quite basic (no TV or Fridge), the staff were happy to assist us in providing a room more suited to our requirements, for... More

My Husband and I went snowboarding at Mt Hutt. I've never written a review before about anything but Ski Time was so lovely. Its the nicest looking, nicest atmosphere and best location to stay when visiting Methven or Mt Hutt. The bar and restaurant have gorgeous log fires. All the staff are so friendly and Pete creates an environment where... More

Clean tidy room, but nothing flash. Very, very hard bed. Lodge bar atmosphere nice especially the roaring fires keeping it all warm. Lady on bar most efficient tidy person I have ever encountered in a bar, beautiful service. Breakfast good value, included in the price. Parking out back useful, but can be long way to haul your gear. Had to... More

Surrounded by hills, Ski time Lodge is a picturesque, very clean yet cozy spot. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included in our rates and was quite a nice spread of healthy and tasty alternatives. This was the only hotel in NZ were the bathroom floors were heated. On a cool day this was certainly welcome. We... More

Loved this place. Everything was so clean and the staff were so helpful. The room was modern, bright and cheery with everything we needed. Had a great meal in the restaurant. Would most certainly stay again when traveling through. Thanks everyone at Ski Time.

Short overnight stay at Ski Time on our way south. The service was friendly, room was clean, nice breakfast. Very calm area, around 15 min walking distance to the restaurants and grocery shops. The restaurant at hotel was closed on the night we stayed, unfortunately, as we would have loved to have dinner there.

Basic no frills room, helpful staff, great location with wonderful views of the mountains from the restaurant, lounge and some rooms. Free continental breakfast provided, cereal, toast, juice, coffee & tea etc. We ate dinner here it was very good and service was good also, main courses are between 30 & 33 NZ$ so not cheap but we thought they...

We stayed in Methven for just one night at the Ski Time, and wished we could have stayed longer! We were greeted by a super friendly receptionist, our room was clean, and a wonderful breakfast was included the next morning. It was surprisingly busy for skiing off season, but we were made to feel very welcome, and the place was... More

We stayed in lovely studio room with a view for just one great bathroom, and friendly manager. Generous breakfast spoiled by offerings of packs of instant coffee. Restaurant looks good but we it was closed the night we stayed there.
