This place is really basic and nothing fancy. For the price we paid, I would say it was quite expensive too. Good points: The kitchen had all the equipments and cutlery you need to cook up a feast as long as you brought your own food. This would be good if you came in a big group. They also have... More

Location was great and good view of Mount Cook. Room and bathroom were large but average. We had a small deck, which was nice in the evening. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We used the cooking facilities, which were a bit dated but well equipped.

We stayed at the Alpine Lodge for one night. The property has excellent views of the surrounding mountains, although it was misty and rainy at the time of our visit. The lodge has a communal kitchen and dining area, with a large lounge. There was excellent information provided in the room on menus of the local restaurants, walking tours and... More

This lodge has far exceeded my expectations. I was unsure about shared accommodation with a 7 and 14 yo but it was absolutely perfect. Why stay at a huge hotel when you can stay somewhere away from the crowds? We stayed four nights which was four times longer than everyone else!! During the day we had the place to ourselves!...

Love the location here and the views were incredible. We were able to walk to the Hillary Alpine Center. Parking was good and the common area was really nice. Our room was basic but gave us all we needed. Nice staff who made good recommendations. Nothing fancy but I definitely recommend.

We had a lovely night here. The views from the rooms are stunning. Loved the kitchenette. Utilised the facility and cooked a bolognese rather than eat out. Rooms are a really good size. The Argo tour is a must do. Preferred to the neighbouring Hermitage.

This was by far the worst stay in my whole time in the South Island. To make matters worse, I'd booked for 2 nights. The biggest issue I had was with the thin walls. Not only could I hear the conversation coming from next door, I could hear the sighs, the television, the times they visited the bathroom, the times... More

We were pleasantly surprised about this Lodge, it exceeded expectations. The staff were very friendly as we walked in the door and were happy to give good advice. The room was advertised as compact, but it felt nice and not cramped at all. The cold pressure in the sink was weak so I didn't have high expectations for the shower... More

Lodge was clean and tidy. Great Lounge/Kitchen Facilities. View from room was amazing. Reception staff were pleasant and helpful. Walking distance to restaurants or bring your own food to cook in the communal kitchen.

Simple room but sufficient. Nice big kitchen and comfortable lounge. Walking distance to the Hermitage Hotel if you did booked some activties there. The visitor centre and the backpackers lodge is also within walking distance which offers dining choices.
