Altamont Lodge is owned and operated by a shareholder collective, and many of those who you share your stay with will be lodge members/family members etc. Non-members are able to stay when vacancies allow. I stayed 5 nights as a solo traveller in a very reasonably priced single room upstairs. Facilities are communal (lounge/commercial kitchen/bathrooms) and are absolutely spotless and well maintained. You have your own cupboard & fridge space. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, and most people turn in pretty early meaning you can get a good night's sleep. My room was sizeable enough, warm and with a comfortable bed. It was a little noisy as it is adjacent the TV lounge and the wall is pretty thin. Wifi is available on a pay as you go basis (thanks Heather). Complementary wifi is not so common in NZ. The lodge is close to town on the road to TC. Noeline and Rod are gracious hosts, and the Chairman of the lodge Adrian was also present during my stay. It is obvious that all work to maintain high standards in this budget but value for money accommodation option. Thanks!

We have stayed at the Altamont 5 times in the past 4 years, mainly for skiing, but we also had a wonderful summer holiday there 2 years ago. Rod and Noeline are so friendly and helpful - they bend over backwards to help with every request, no matter how difficult. They treat all the guests as if they are part of their family, and the facilities at the lodge are great. It is extremely clean, has a great new kitchen, a TV room, and lounge, as well as plenty of outdoor space, barbeque area and tennis courts for the summer. For skiiers, there is good storage, a drying room and a spa to soothe aching muscles. It is a very restful lodge suitable for all ages, but fortunately the sleeping areas have an enforced quiet time which means everyone gets a good sleep. It is great value for money, and an easy walk into town.

Room Tip: We prefer rooms 3,4 and 5, looking out over the garden, and away from the kitchen and the main entrance area.

I stayed for 2 nights with my family and another family. The place was spotlessly clean and very warm and cosy. The rooms were fantastic with very comfy beds and warm with electric blankets.
The kitchen was very well stocked and organised for the guests to cook there meals. I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone who goes to Wanaka. Rod and Noelene the property managers were just very warm and lovely people with so much information about the area and things to do. I will definitely be going back to stay on my next ski adventure.
Great value .Thanks !!!

Im not a fan of having to share bathrooms and other facilities but this time is was a pleasure. Everything was beautifully cleaned, the rooms are warm and very quiet. There is also a big kitchen that is brand new, with everything you would need to get yourself a great meal. I felt so comfortable there that I could even see myself living there for a couple of weeks! All around a great place.

Stayed for 2 nights at this lovely lodge in a single room.
The cleanest nicest place around Wanaka / Queenstown. I could not believe how clean it was from kitchen to room to facilities.
The rooms wall may not be the thickest but with the no noice rule after 9 and before 8 you can get a good night sleep.
Good value for you're money, nicest people huge huge kitchen just all round good place to stay!!!!!
