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...

My partner and I stayed at Ski Time for one night whilst we were visiting Mt Hutt Ski Field. The room was beautifully presented, clean and modern. The hosts were friendly and we appreciated the gentleman's witty sense of humour. We ate at the restaurant in the evening and both had lovely meals, although I found them a little over... More

We stayed 2 nights at this lodge/hotel. Bought the room on Wotif and have not been disappointed. Really nice room with deck and stunning views, comfortable queen sized bed, nice bathroom with good shower and all the mod-cons of a modern hotel. The hotel has a nice restaurant - we had a really good meal there, friendly staff and nice... More

I guess one of the skills in operating a great lodge is selecting great staff. Pete and Susi should be very happy with the friendly and efficient staff they have employed at Ski Time. Having great staff certainly makes a very positive difference. I recently stayed for 6 nights with my young son in a standard room. While the room... More

Methven is not the most glamorous destination our purpose for staying there is probably the same as most, to ski Mt Hutt. As a base for this it is perfect warm dry and comfy. Big log fires and friendly staff. The room decor may not be to everyone's taste and the bathrooms are basic. The restaurant is popular it was... More
