Of all the places we stayed in the South Island, Alpine Lodge was the smallest, least fully equipped and the most expensive.We gasped when we entered the small (family) room on the 2nd floor which 4 of us were going to live in for the next 2 days. Laden with big luggage bags and groceries galore, we were worried about the tight squeeze and having to share space in the common kitchen. There were only 2 small common fridges, so we could only put in some of our dairy stuff and kept the rest of our groceries in the room. Fortunately, the kitchen had enough space for all the residents who wanted to cook , albeit at staggered times and the adjoining lounge was nice to relax in on a rainy day. We didn't regret our stay at Alpine Lodge as we enjoyed the walks around and anyway, the main hotel - the Hermitage would have been far pricier.
