Matterhorn South Lodge and Backpackers
Ranked #42 of 48 Specialty Lodging in Wanaka
Reviewed April 12, 2005

Good, clean, simple lodging in fairly central Wanaka location.

Matterhorn South has double rooms as well as backpacker units. There is a television room (I think with fireplace). Doors to the double rooms are sliding glass doors, curtains behind.

Wanaka lodging is not cheap, so prices on the whole are somewhat inflated. We paid $80 for a double room with ensuite. Not the cheapest room in New Zealand, but a deal for Wanaka. The room had a double bed as well as two twin bunk beds for children. The bathroom (shower) was quite nice. Television above the bed. Nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable.

We slept well. For Wanaka, this is good moderate/budget lodging. Thumbs up.

Bargain price for perfect location and great rooms and service. We intended to stay for 1 night and ended up staying for 3. Good lounge and kitchen facilities. TV and fridge in each ensuite room. Make sure you check out the cinema paradiso!
