Aoraki Alpine Lodge is very well situated, really comfortable,warm, friendly helpful people and with amazing views of Aoraki Mount Cook and the entire mountain range. Walking distance from the ISite and Hermitage Hotel, coffee and the many beautiful walks. I will be back. Thank you Shona Gillespie - Walking and Biking Kaikoura

Arriving after dark was difficult as there is no outside lighting; it's pitch black out there. Reception is underwhelming, being basically just a counter in a corridor. The rooms are small and fairly basic; there appears to be little sound proofing between rooms as I could clearly hear my neighbours using the toilet, talking etc. I was disappointed there were...

We stayed for two nights here in a room on the first floor with a king-sized bed. The room was clean and tidy and adequate for our needs with an en-suite bathroom. The communal lounge is huge with stunning views of the area and is the place to be in the evening IF the sun is out. The view of... More

Mt Cook village is beautiful. I had a long drive to come here from Christchurch and was very tired when evening came. So a good night sleep was desperately needed. I was hoping that Aoraki Mt Cook Alpine lodge would be as good as what the reviews on TA say, and I was so glad it was accurate!!! The lodge... More

We came here on a tour bus and we had lunch on the lounge with the views of Mount Cook which was very misty, I had tomato & garlic soup, stir fried vegetables with roll and coffee which was nice, we walked the hotel for more views but it was pouring that day..

The rooms were very clean and the beds fairly comfy. Offered a good location to visit the surrounding area and staff were friendly. Did some walking nearby which was nice and would recommend a visit to the glacier.

I booked at the lodge because the private rooms at the hostel & backpackers were booked. It was thus more than I'd have preferred to pay, but I have to say I had a lovely stay. The room was clean and comfortable (and had a view of the clouds covering the mountains :-) bad luck this trip). I enjoyed the... More

Our room directly faced Mount Cook. A comfortable room with minor kitchen facilities. We had a nice patio area with a table and chairs to enjoy some wine after a day of hiking and bask in the view of the mountains. The staff were friendly and much more helpful than the visitor center staff. There are other accommodations nearby but... More

We stayed for a night in their "Family Room with Mountain view". Our first floor room had fantastic views. The room and the bathroom were very small but it was ok for us as we were staying for just one night. The shared(communal) kitchen was very well equipped and very well maintained. The common lounge is huge with stunning views.... More

The Lodge was great for our needs. The rooms were not huge but adequate with comfy beds and tea and coffee making facilities. We also had a lovely view from our rooms. We used the communal kitchen for breakfast and had no problems with crowding. It was great sitting there in the evening watching the sun set over Mt Cook.... More
