We recently stayed at LKNZ for the North Island Secondary Schools snow boarding competition. Our team was in the newer Mountain View Lodge and we had 2 of the 4-bed rooms (i.e. two sets of bunks in each room) with a shared bathroom located between the two rooms. Bed linen is provided.There are two communal kitchens that can be used for cooking or just for making hot drinks, plus a communal lounge area. Facilities are excellent for groups and Amanda and her team provided a great service that included catered meals for our group - cooked breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal. The lodge was warm and comfortable and had everything we needed - certainly a high standard for a back packer lodge.
Thanks Amanda and team for a great stay and we hope to be back again next year.
