Stayed in Methven for one night - and no one else in residence. Met by the daughter of the owners in Reception in old T shirt, leggings and slippers. When asking for ice, Mum was looking equally shabby. We were told that if we left unwashed dishes in the sink we would be charged extra. What are they doing all... More

A great little place. Methven is a small town at best, but we stay purely for skiing at Mt Hutt. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment- which was great for two couples. Kitchen big enough to cook breakfast every day etc. Some decor a little dated but that's ok, great value for money compared to others in town! Only... More

We returned to Methven for some skiing on Mt. Hutt, which we do on a regular basis although this is the first time since 2011, this stay was for 3 weeks. Our choice of accommodation has never changed, Methven Motel and Apartments provide us with all that we require. The apartments are modern, spacious, very clean with warm comfortable beds,... More

The owner operator is loosing the plot, clearly having life issues which is being reflected at the customers with her temper tantrums. Bathroom sills were rotten but painted over and let drafts into the unit. Pictures not reflective of actual space and bathroom not generous as described. Shower over bath not separate as described. No teatowels provided. If you add... More

This customer left our Motel with out paying for the extra person they hadn't paid for. They had been told of the extra amount and I asked for a cr card as security. The card declined. With help I got my money and this comment is just sour grapes because he did not get away with it. I changed there... More

We stayed at the Methven motels for a ski holiday recently. The motel units were very modern, clean and tidy. The service was friendly and helpful and the motels are conveniently located, walking distance to town. We were very impressed and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Methven Motels last year and found it to be an overall wonderful experience. As our trip was for three weeks we chose the Budget Family apartment. There were two lovely bedrooms with the most comfortable motel beds we have ever found. These mattresses were so comfortable that we chose to upgrade our mattresses to the same as... More

We stayed for one night in a studio apartment with spa bath. The apartment was quite spacious and so was the bathroom. There was also a small kitchenette with basic kitchen equipment. Everything looked clean and reasonably new. We had a nice view of the mountains. What we didn't like was the lack of free WiFi. They charged $5 for... More

Lovely clean well appointed and warm family unit. Really nice people kitchen well set up and lovely spa bath. Great location easy to get shuttle buss to Mt Hutt from just down the road a bit. Methven itself was a surprising treasure and our 2 night stay was lovely. Would have liked another whole day there.

More than adequate hotel. Greeted by wintery conditions in the area. Rooms took a while to heat up. Bring your slippers as the tile floors in the kitchenette and bathroom were never warm! Great to have kitchenette facilities as we adjusted to the time change and woke up very early. Family friendly bed arrangements.

Stayed one night here looking for a quiet night in a two bedroom apartment. It cost one hundred dollars and was perfect. Spacious with lounge, kitchen etc, spotlessly clean just a bit older. I wish we could find more accommodation like this for such a great price. Very friendly owner and easy walk to shops, pubs, resturants.
