The accommodation here is comfortable but quite expensive for the standard. The location is great with walking trails nearby and views of the mountains from the lounge. There is a communal lounge and kitchen which is nice to sit in but the kitchen was rather taken over by Asian guests cooking extensive and complicated meals which rather monopolised the facilities....

Out of everywhere I've stayed in New Zealand so far, this would have to be my favourite. I haven't even checked out yet but I feel the need to write a review. My room (a rear-facing ensuite) was awesome. Super cosy yet spacious, with a great bathroom. A fantastic bed too - it's the best sleep I've had so far.... More

The rooms are small, clean with all that is necessary. The bed is very comfortable. The large great room is well equipped. BUT, not all rooms have a view. One of our group is on the first floor with little view and an unfortunate one of our group looks out the back to a gravel parking lot. Awful. The wifi... More

There are only limited options to stay at Mt. Cook, Hermitage Hotel being the only other significant hotel and may be under same management. Mt. Cook is a small place but a Must Go and one of the best place in NZ. We repented not having spent one extra day at Mt. Cook as the itineraries were fixed. Motel rooms... More

We stayed just one night, it was great to find a fully equipped kitchen in the superb dining room right in front of the Mount Cook. Felt like I could touch it! Plenty of hiking and tracks right outside the door.

Great view of Mount Cook and I liked the fact that you knew what sort of view you would get from the listing before you booked. Large dining room with a balcony. Staff are knowledgeable and helpful. Next time I will try camping but this was a great way to spend New Years Day.

This was nearing the end of our trip to NZ. An amazing place, brilliant views. Weather was cold but clear views over the mountains. We had great food, staff very welcoming and professional. Nothing to much trouble. Walked out from hotel great!! Certainly would return, even though it was expensive. The exchange rate was good against the sterling.

No, you will have to drive 3 or 4k back down the road to get a view of Mt Cook, though the drive along the lake to the lodge does offer spectacular views. So if the view is the main reason for your visit, just do the drive and stay somewhere else. You'd also be well advised taking your own... More

Reception was professional, friendly, warm and welcoming. We were given a free upgrade to a family motel room located at the back of the main lodge. This had outstanding views and great kitchen facilities, meaning we didn't have to use the backpacker's kitchen. Although the room wasn't serviced until late afternoon, this didn't bother us. Laundry facilities in the motels... More

My family of four stayed here on Boxing Day. The American guy at reception was very friendly and professional and the room was spacious and clean if a tad dated. The tennis courts had the most amazing backdrop and we spent an evening there hitting poorly. The wifi was stupidly expensive and the place in general pretty expensive compared to... More
