“Attractive Lodge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2009

We found Alpine Lodge a good place to stay. The self-contained unit we had was very spacious and attractive with its all-timber interior and green decor. It was clean and the staff were very amenable. We needed to use an oven as there wasn't one in the room (only rings), so we went to the Lodge kitchen and the chef took our food and cooked it for us in their oven even though they were very busy with big orders at the time. And they did it with a smile! They also made no fuss when we had to cancel one night's accommodation there due to rain....(we couldn't walk round the Lakes in the rain).
The Lodge is very close to the beautiful Nelson Lakes where you can walk, climb, boat and fish. It's a really picturesque, nature spot.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2009

We stayed at the lodge so my husband cold participate in a bike race.

The amenities are basic, but comfortable, but it was not clean. The kids had a shower and I wiped up water from the floor to find a white towel turning grey. There were crumbs on shelves, the floor was not properly vacuumed and the glasses in the cupboards were not clean.

The setting (St Arnold) was gorgeous and the "log cabins" with two bedrooms were attractive, but I would probably stay somewhere else next time because I really like clean facilities.
