Stayed her for one night on our NZ South Island trip. Well located, clean and basic facilities including tea/coffee making facilities. Common room with lounge and shared kitchen was very good with great views. Very basic food available for purchase from reception but otherwise the village was lacking in availability of basic grocery items. If you stay here we recommend... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge. The host was so helpful and friendly. The kitchen was a delight to work in, very clean, organised and roomy. The view from the huge window was to die for, I could have sat in the comfortable lounge and gazed out the window all day.

Our room was a quiet standard-size double room, located on the ground floor. Although not fancy, the room was clean and perfect for our one-night stay. But the best part of the hotel is probably its common lounge/kitchen area with an amazing view on Mount Cook, Mount Sefton, and Mount Oliver.

A group of us stayed here & had various configurations for beds in the rooms. Our upstairs room had 2 twins & a bunk bed. Downstairs was a double bed with a patio as examples. The upstairs kitchen/communal area worked great for us & there was another group each of the 2 nights we were there. Plenty of room. The... More

We found this accommodation after a heavy day driving from Christchurch to Mount Cook. The Mount Cook Village is amazing; its quiet and has a view to die for. The only free room was a family room and this was obviously nice and spacious for a couple and well priced also. The communal lounge and dining area was well kitted... More

We stayed three nights and hiked each day. Heeding the suggestion on our confirmation that we might bring food with us, we found their ample refrigerator and storage space and large cooking area and grill allowed us to cook our meals and dine in the great room with the view. [The dearth of exciting restaurants in town made this especially... More

Stayed two nights with family in March. The communal lounge and dining area with mountain outlook were terrific - lovely to be able to meet other travelers in a relaxed and informal setting, play board & card games at night, sip wine etc. The downside of the communal facilities is, perhaps, the shared kitchen. Ultimately, you end up getting a... More

The Mount Cook Village is very quiet - one hotel, one lodge, two hostels and one restaurant. Come here for the views and the walking - both of which are fabulous. The Lodge is a great choice. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. The shared lounge has breathtaking views. The shared kitchen works well. We Hermitage Hotel next... More

Probably a bit overpriced for what it is. But considering the remote location and lack of other options, I wasn't surprised nor upset about the price. Room is very sparse with fairly cheap furnishings, but it is clean and well kept. Communal kitchen facilities were not ideal, but workable. Staff was very friendly and gave us some great advice on...

We stayed here in March 2015. As most people have mentioned, the views are stunning, especially from the front facing rooms. Even if you do not have such a room, then go to the kitchen area and there are lots of sofas which face the mountains. There was no fridge in our room (was a front facing room on the... More
