We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment on our ski trip which was warm, comfortable, spacious and clean with everything you could need available. The drying room was very handy to put all our snow gear out of the way. It was ideally located just down the road from the entrance to Cardrona ski fields as well as the Ski Park/Farm on the road to Queenstown. Meant you could beat the rush up the mountain. Was a 10-15min drive into Wanaka but found we didn't really mind this. Would be difficult if you didn't have your own car though. Had a luxury feel to it and we were very impressed. I chose it because it was the best value in the area for 4 ppl to stay comfortably. There is an old pub next door which is an absolute must for a visit. It's one of the oldest in NZ and has so much history to it. Very cosy with lounges in front of the fire and memorabilia all around. I recommend checking out the photo albums near the piano for a step back into the history of the area. We were going to visit the heated pool/spa area one night and cook a BBQ but found that the heating had broken down and it was far too cold to hop in which was a bit disappointing but not a big deal. Overall were very impressed with the place and would come back again.
