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.

Continental breakfast was complimentary and of good quality. It is a little distance from the town centre and about a 15 minute walk. Personally I... More

I was fortunate enough to get to stay here after Ashburton was full. It was a great place to rest for the night very clean and comfortable and modern. A few people including myself were having issues with the free Wi-Fi so slow it was unusable and only one device can be connected otherwise I would have rated 5stars. The... More

We stopped in for a night, having ducked over from the West Coast to avoid a week of rain, and stayed a second night while we visited a few local sights. It's a good step above a ski lodge, really modern comfortable rooms with comfortable outside seating, BBQ area etc, most with lovely rural/Mt Hutt views. Friendly staff and a... More

Ski time is more than just average accommodation it has more of a family feel. Great place to stay if you are staying in town for skiing. Service was amazing. only thing is there is no DVD ion rooms or fridges but apart from that would defiantly stay again.

From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed and made to feel valued visitors. The room was very clean, tidy and comfortable and the restaurant has a splendid log fire. The dinners were delicious: the only downside was that we made the mistake of eating elsewhere on our second night. What a disaster, we learnt our lesson. Good wine... More

We stayed in the lodge rooms at Ski Time and had a great time. Although there were a few small things that could be improved (poor wifi throughput, shower water volume) these minor inconveniences were far outweighed by the friendly staff, great breakfast + coffee, the bar, the restaurant and the general welcoming and relaxed atmosphere of the place.

We have just had a wonderful week of skiing at Mt Hutt and our accommodation at Ski Time in Methven was simply fantastic. The lodge is neat, tidy, clean and very welcoming. The staff were very warm and friendly and the meals were excellent. Thank you to everyone for making our stay so enjoyable.
