Just stayed two nights & thought it was very good. We had a small room however, at the time of booking they advised us of the size & it was the last room available. Didn't bother us in the slightest. You do not go to Mt Cook to sit in your room. The lounge upstairs was spotless & really well...

I was a bit surprised when we went into our twin room. It was so small we barely had space for our suitcases. There was no fridge or microwave, just a kettle. There was a very nice communal kitchen and lounge area upstairs which seemed to work well enough. I think I was just a bit shocked as I had...

Really disappointed given the price. The room was stuffy and small. The shower was a dribble alternating between cold and piping hot. The bed was hard and uncomfortable and gave me a bad rash on my back. The pillows were flat. I know there is limited accommodation in Mt Cook but there is no need to overcharge for substandard facilities....

Terrific. Lovely warm welcome. Stunning views. Lovely clean and quiet room with views of Mt Cook.. The lounge and kitchen areas were spotless. The staff were very informative and extremely helpful. It is also well placed for the I-Site, The Sir Edmund Hillery Centre and places to eat within a couple of minutes walk. Tours, bikes etc. can be booked...

We had a very nice welcome from the staff who offered to help with our bags up the stairs. Staff also helped us book a scenic flight. The bedrooms are basic but the reason you stay here is to use the lounge to overlook Mount Cook. Lots of sofas and an outside area which meant you get to mix and...

Very friendly employees, willing to hold my luggage before check-in, shared kitchen and lounge was spacious and convenient. The view from the deck was lovely. Rooms are clean and comfortable although some noise was heard from the neighboring room. Location within the village was great, staff suggestions were valuable. I recommend the lodge to others.

This hotel had decent rooms with a nice view. However the rooms were really loud. We spent 2 nights here. The rooms are downstairs with the meeting room upstairs. So there was noise from upstairs relatively early to late at Night. Also anyone talking outside of your door you could clearly hear all the words so the doors were pretty...

This is a quaint lodge which has a terrific view of Mt. Cook. The first picture shown here is for the Mueller Backpacking Hut and it is not affiliated with this lodge. The remaining pictures are accurate. That being said, the rooms are simple and lightly furnished. The rooms were comfortable except there were only two power outlets in the...

My family group of four adults recently stayed at the Lodge for two nights. We were fortunate to have good weather for the first 24 hours we were there so my brother in-law spent most of the first evening sitting out on the verandah with his camera, taking multiple shots of Mount Cook as the sun set. The kitchen was...

Location is good, we really can see the view of the snowy mountains from the lounge, kitchen facilities are very good, rooms are clean and comfortable, however the wifi limit is too little for the four of us, we're used up all the limit in several hours only.

Hello, Thanks for the review. We offer 1 GB of free WiFi per room, per day. Usually this is sufficient, however more can be purchased at a reasonable cost if required. Kind regards, Mary Malcolm, Manager
