“Less expensive alternative in Mt Cook”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We spent two nights at this lodge. The room was good, comfortable and clean. There was a common kitchen on the 2nd floor so the room was just a bedroom, nothing special. The view was really nice though! I recommend this place if you don't want to spend too much $$$ but still want to stay in Mt Cook village.

Stayed in Mt Cook Alpine Lodge while waiting out a storm to do a glacier flight. Great cozy hotel with exceptional views. Staff is friendly and informative. Comfortable beds, clean rooms and plenty of parking. Try Old Mountaineers Café; walking distance from the lodge.

This is a comfortable place to spend a night near Mount Cook. The staff were friendly and helpful. We took the opportunity to self-cater although there were four cafés/restaurants nearby. The kitchen facilities were good.

Loved the drive towards the village, with the mountains getting closer. Our room was very basic but there was a communal lounge area upstairs with well equipped kitchens with everything you need. Views are amazing. Lovely atmosphere. Staff are really friendly and have all the information of the area. They found out if helicopter trips were going (bit windy) and booked me on a flight which was amazing. Did a couple of the glacier walks. Wished we could have stayed longer.

My wife and I really enjoyed staying at the Aoraki for two nights. The room (although not large) was very comfortable. The front desk personal were helpful and pleasant. The nicest feature of the hotel was the common room that had kitchen facilities, and a large eating and sitting area with great views of the mountings. The nearby hikes are superb. We both highly recommend the Aoraki Mount Cook Alpine Lodge.

Stayed one night but wished we had stayed longer to do more walks around Mount Cook. Room is quite cozy, common kitchen clean and well equipped and lounge is a great place to hangout with great view of Mount Cook.

A fantastic place to stay. It was clean and comfortable, had great views, depending on the sort of room you have, and the boat tour of the Tasman glacier was top notch.

The food at the buffet was fantastic with a huge variety of seafood. That was a definite highlight of the day!
