Stayed in a studio as a stop over heading back to Christchurch. Room was really nice and comfortable, location on edge of town was very quiet and in walking distance back to town for eating/shops etc. Breakfast in the room was great as it allows for an early start and the overall service was very good. Could recommend this to anyone whether there for the skiing in winter or as a stop over on a driving holiday like ours.

Room Tip: All are really nice. Studios at the back are also very quiet.

Methven is lucky enough to have a great choice of dining experiences for a small rural town thanks to the winter business generated from the ski field. The town has done well to generate a strong summer trade over the years and from our last visit in September to Ski Time these guys are at the top of their game in town.
The wait staff work fantastically together always friendly. The food is the best I have ever had in Methven well done to everyone working together to pull off a great experience. Canterbury lamb salad and pork main are top notch.

Villas are brandnew and gorgeous. Never in our life had we come across a heated mirror that clears it of steam so you can shave right after your shower! Everything is totally thought through and superb quality. Great kitchen. Very friendly owners, very quiet.

My sister and I stayed here for two nights in December 2012 in a (I think) newly completed studio apartment separated from the main lodge.
For the price the room and inclusions were second to none - modern room, double and single bed, free wifi, continental breakfast in room (cereal, bread, various spreads, yoghurt, etc.)
We arrived late at night and were greeted by the most lovely lady who showed us to our room and offered to organise us some food if we hadn't already eaten.

The lodge's lounge and bar area were top notch and the restaurant food was delicious - they even accommodated my vegan sister without any troubles.
When I visit Methven again this will always be my first choice of places to stay.

Was in Methven overnight and this place was recommended to me. Great choice. Had a fillet steak, which was nice and thick. Asked for it rare, but it came out medium rare - but it was so thick and juicy it didn't matter. The potatoes, mushrooms and said set the steak off to perfection.

Dessert was less impressive - it was a "meringue mess " with berries, which sounds like it's be something like an Eton Mess, but it was actually a pavlova. It's MY dessert, I love pavs, making them and eating them. It was on the small side for a real Kiwi pav though, and the meringue was overcooked - you could tell as soon as it came out that if had been in the oven on too high a temperature. It could have gone in at a lower temperature for less time, because instead of a crunchy outside and a chewy centre it was solid and brittle. Still, it came with wonderful berries in syrup which had a beautiful balance between sweet and acidic.

When you combine it with the great service and awesome view, this is totally a place I'd head back to and recommend to anyone.

My partner and I stayed at Ski Time for one night whilst we were visiting Mt Hutt Ski Field. The room was beautifully presented, clean and modern.

The hosts were friendly and we appreciated the gentleman's witty sense of humour.

We ate at the restaurant in the evening and both had lovely meals, although I found them a little over priced.
The room price however, was very affordable and worth every cent we stayed in an executive lodge room. My only critique about the room would be to include mini fridge's.
