Matterhorn is one of the nicest, friendliest places I've stayed at on my travels. From the exceptionally warm welcome and hospitality to the overall atmosphere and cosiness, you simply cant go wrong with a stay in this home-away-from-home.
There are 2 separate lodgings - the backpackers on one side with economy-minded rooms (dorms and double/twin), kitchen and chilled-out dining/living area. Theres also a patio with BBQ.
For the less budget-minded, the newer building houses the Lodge which has a selection of lovely individual rooms, all en-suite with TV and fridge, double, twin, quad etc. the Lodge has its own separate kitchen and tv room with fire.
Matterhorn is ideally located right in the centre of Wanaka and has a great reputation amongst backpackers and travellers in the area. Highly highly recommended.
