this is a definite stop. Great food and a good choice of bar snacks as well. They even went out of their way for a small cup cake birthday cake. Great staff and service, one of the best places we ate in New Zealand. 10/10 MUSTDO!

I felt comfortable with the ambience, the lake was awesome, I understand and I have read about the decor which is a bit old, but I think it goes very well with the place, to look for a 5 star hotel and elegant, there are cities like new york, paris. But I only have to limit something that did not...

We spent an excellent night at the Alpine Lodge. The people were professional and efficient. The room was well--appointed and very clean. We love having a refrigerator and microwave. The location was convenient, right on the main road, and yet incredibly quiet. We loved seeing the animals that came to our back patio.

We had one night in an apartment room. The rooms are a little dated in the furnishing and decor department but that isn't really a problem , the main thing is that the room was clean :-) It is a good place to stay - on the main road and with a restaurant on site. We were travelling with another...

The main hotel building has high wooden ceilings, exposed beams and lots of character of an Alpine style in the bar, restaurant and lobby. This is one of the loveliest hotels we have stayed in in New Zealand.The bedrooms are set in a semicircle around the car park to one side, motel style. However the bedrooms all have great views...

We stayed here for 1 night in between a trip to the Marlborough sounds and Arthur’s Pass. The lodge was clean and spacious and came with everything we needed for a home cooked meal. The shop over the road had limited supplies but closed at 8pm. The surrounding area is nice and a good spot for an overnight stay.

We stayed here one night. The rooms were basic but clean. The dinner at the restaurant was actually very good and specially as we could complement our dinner with a bottle of neudorf Pinot noir at a reasonable price. The breakfast, especially for a gluten dairy free person was quiet expensive. I would walk over to the super market across...

Very nice place to stay for a couple of days. Nice walking areas. Beautiful space all over. Nice rooms but very stiff blankets to share for two person. Restaurant has a very nice menu. Can highly recommend the pizzas,they were thin and crunchy.
