Motel connected with Lodge has good views, is comfortably fitted out and had excellent heating (this was mid-winter). It is connected with the Hermitage and there was a free shuttle up to the Hermitage which at this time of year (low occupancy) was more-or-less on demand: excellent service given sub-zero temperatures. Motels also near the main lodge with bar/restaurant.

Very friendly staff. We arrived 1 day earlier than our booking and gt lucky of getting the last room although we pay more due to its last day of summer season. Very tidy communal kitchen. Very clean room too.

The breathtaking view from their huge lounge on the first floor onto Mt Cook alone is well worth your money! The staff was super friendly and went above and beyond in order to make our stay with our 10 month old twin boys as comfortabler as possible. Also, the place is absolutely reasonably priced for the area!

The place is a small lodge with medium sized rooms... our room had a small porch outside with splendid views of Mount Cook... you can get the same views from the lounge area on the 1st floor of the lodge, but its better when lying on your bed

We received an upgrade to an upstairs room with a fantastic view of Mount Cook. The room was nice and airy and modern and clean and comfortable and quiet. We were especially impressed with the size and quality of the communal kitchen/lounge area

We have stayed there for a night in January 2015. We got a front facing family room where we were able to enjoy the stunning view of the snowing mountain from our room window! The view from the lounge is superb as well! The only thing is the room is quite small but clean.

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
