I was recommended the lodge, as it was very close to where I needed to be methven. It was a great location, very convenient, and also extremely clean and tidy. Massive king size bed and overall a great place to stay

We arrived late evening to be greeted by Paul at reception. Really friendly guy and helpful. He had turned the heater on in our room so it was lovely and warm when the family walked in. The room we stayed in was very good value for a family of 5. Indeed it was the best value for money we could... More

Large well appointed modern clean room. Excellent friendly service. Small touches like free biscuits in the room and free continental breakfast sets this establishment apart from the rest. Just had a meal in the restaurant and the food was delicious and came with a 10% discount as well.

Had 3 nights with hubby and miss 7 for an early few days skiing at Mt Hutt. We were greeted warmly on arrival and on being shown to our room the lady wasn't happy with something in the bathroom so put us next door. To us, both rooms were spotless so no complaints! Big shout out to the cleaning team... More

A couple of things to be aware of though. The heater is incredibly noisy, so you won't be able to sleep if you have... More
