You're here for the Glaciers, so probably not going to spend a lot of time in the cottage. It's a motel really - with a tiny bathroom, uncomfortable beds, uncomfortable pillows and the staff didn't like us when we asked for an extra towel and came in 90 minutes late (granted, driving on the other side of the road from Christchurch in rainy whether). Yet, we were there to trek the Glaciers and despite the space, there is nothing like walking outside and seeing the clouds come over the mountains in the morning. We could walk everywhere we needed to go from the Cottage - and for the price, it did what we needed it to do.
