Aoraki/Mt Cook - Any Accomodation recommendations?

Hi Everyone,

Planning an overnight stay in Aoraki/Mt Cook whilst driving between Queenstown and Christchurch.

Does anyone have some favorite hotels? Any hidden gems? (I will keep it quiet lol)

Well located with nice views preferred. Moderately priced for an adult couple.

Many Thanks in advance :)

We've just been to Aoraki/Mt Cook and if the weather is half way decent you should be able to take a walk to either of the main glaciers that will leave you smiling with delight. The information centre is the best I have seen anywhere - brilliant design and lots of interesting information about the area and its people.

Right next to it is a great cafe. Can't remember it's name, sorry, butchery make great coffee and have one of the best views in the world.

Last time I was there the cafe was called the Old Mountianeer. Have to agree about the views but the service can be patchy due to the hiring of WHVs.
