“July Family holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

We had a great 10 day holiday here. Very helpful and friendly, easy 5min drive to Wanaka, and so good to come back at the end of a day's skiing to a nice, warm base. Great for the kids, and close to beautiful walks along the Clutha River. We'll definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We had the family room with a queen bed & bunks, which was great for us. A previous guest had fi...

What a fantastic venue for a school camp. Albert Town Lodge is just the right size for a class with parents. It is very reasonable, easy to patrol at night (!) and SO easy to clean up on the last day. Having bedding and towels supplied was a rare treat.
many thanks,Tania - we shall return!

Easy gong comfortable place to stay only a few minutes from Wanaka township and right by fantastic bike and walking tracks. Warm bunkrooms and impeccably clean shared facilties... Excellent value for money. With plenty of space outside to play, trampoline and swings, it's a great location for an affordable self-catering family holiday in Wanaka.

What a fabulous place to stay. My daughter & I stayed at Albert Town Lodge over the April School holidays.
It is such a very clean, tidy & warm lovely place, ideal for groups and families.
Tania & Darryl were fantastic hosts especially with their knowledge of the area and ideas on things to do.
We will definately be back again.

We had a great stay at the Albert Town Lodge recently. Tania made us feel really welcome and her and Darryl were always really helpful, with advice of where we could go for walks, cycles and for a bite to eat. The rooms are warm and comfortable, and we had a really good sleep! The kitchen is amazing - heaps of pots and pans and plates, and free tea and coffee - what could be better?! It was miles better than a lot of other places we've stayed in on our travels. The lounge had lots of comfy sofas, a massive tv and best of all, an amazing wood burning fire that kept us super cosy all night. The location is perfect, only 5 mins to Wanaka and Hawea really close too. We loved it here, and would recommend it to everyone!

Albert Town Lodge is the perfect spot to spend the night when travelling between the West Coast and Dunedin. A quiet location near Wanaka and the Clutha River. Tania, Darryl and their Daughter were great hosts - really welcoming, and made time for a chat to give advice before my onwards travel! I stayed in a spacious room with Queen bed and great heating! The bathrooms were nice and clean with good showers, a massive kitchen, lounge and dinning room meant there was lots of space and of course the offer internet which is always essential when planning a holiday!
