1. Re: Aoraki/Mt.Cook

Aoraki Mt Cook is a small (well tiny) village in the middle of a National Park. There is little choice. There is the Hermitage complex of Hotel and motels (excelent quality but the hotel is not "budget", a hostel and camping grounds. For meals there is the Hermitage and the Old Mountaineer restaurant (check reviews).

Alternativly you can stay at Tekapo with its beautiful lake, or Twixel a former hydro town. Either are a 45 minute drive away.

There is also Glentanner Station ("station" = farm) about 10 km outside the NP, with reasonably priced cabins (OK, overpriced for what they are but reasonable for the location). I have camped here and stayed in the cabins. You can drive up to the Hermitage for meals or self-cater - buying fresh or smoked salmon from the local salmon farms.)
