Beautiful place to stay in a beautiful setting. The 3 bedrooms villas are fantastic and very well looked after. Really liked the antipodes in the room - a great touch. After a big day's skiing or touring the vineyards, the huge hot spa is waiting for you. Make sure you take down a few beers or a bottle of wine...

We stayed in one of the three bedroom villas for a wedding, it was immaculate, beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept in - definetly worth the trip out to Cardrona! The new wine bar was lovely with delicious pizza and fantastic selection of wines and cocktails.

I stayed here for a wedding in the weekend. The rooms were very well equipped and insulated - very quiet as it's set back from the road. The bar and restaurant were well done also - we had a couple of pizzas and they were great. Would be an absolute delight in winter time with the large outdoor spa and...

We stayed here for 2 nights during January 2012. It's a pleasant setting and our studio unit was still modern & very clean. The unit had everything we needed, comfortable bed, good kitchen & bathroom & it's own laundry which is always a bonus in NZ. We only used the kitchen for breakfasts so can't actually comment on how well...

An ideal place to stay about 20 minutes out of Wanaka on the Crown Range road and very close to Cardrona ski-field. We stayed in a studio unit in summer with full kitchen & laundry facilities. There is a pizza cafe & bar on site or you are in easy walking distance to the historic Cardrona hotel with a beautiful...

The accommodation was excellent, with big bedrooms, modern bathrooms, lovely lounge/kitchen area with gas fire. We also enjoyed a drink at the bar + had the pizzas, which were yum. We enjoyed time in the big hot tub on both nights. Great location for either Cardrona or Snow Park and walking distance to the pub for a beer or dinner....

A 20 minute drive to Queenstown and Wanaka. Lovely mountain accomodation. For all you skiers, book early. The unit had a full kitchen and laundry facilities. Very clean, modern and well appointed. They changed our booking to add another room at late notice. Probably the best value for money on our trip to NZ although it is a little remote...
