This is a lodge not a hotel. As such you are sharing space such as the huge lounge and kitchen, with strangers. As many of them come from other countries you are also guaranteed an interesting and educational conversation. The bedrooms are not huge but fine for a couple (as we were) - probably a little cramped for families who... More

My husband and I stayed at Altamont lodge for a week of skiing and this was the perfect place to stay. The owner Helen was extremely welcoming and helpful with great advice for local wineries and places to check out. She even sourced a poster sized ski resort map for us which was a lovely surprise. The lodge itself was... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights whilst we went skiing at Cardrona. Our host Helen was delightful and gave us lots of tips on places to go, where to eat etc whilst we were there. She also kindly checked the weather report for us before we set off to Franz Joseph. The accommodation was great, warm comfortable... More

My sister and I stayed here for 3 nights this week. Very reasonably priced, impeccably clean and excellent kitchen facilities. The manager Helen was lovely and very helpful with suggestions of great activities to do during our stay in Wanaka. Will definitely stay here again.

Excellent place to stay. Impeccably clean, organised, and comfortable. The kitchen is well-organised to suit long stays. Noise from the adjacent room permeates the walls easily but I didn't mind. Helen was very welcoming and informative.

Great lodge with great facility. Got upgraded to a family room because the lady was nice enough to place me near the bathroom. Not only that but my room was facing the garden and not the parking lot. Thank you. Quiet and a bit out of the central but if you have a car, that won't be a problem. Place... More

This is the bargain of Wanaka, as the prices here are well below the average for Wanaka, yet the standards are high. More like a ski-lodge, the wooden building is kept very clean and it is well managed by the on-site owners. Nice that there are 2 lounges, one with TV and 1 without TV. It also has a large... More
