Great fire place, good kitchen. The internet is pricey but that seems to be the case all over NZ.

Thanks so much for your review, we're glad you enjoyed your stay. As for the internet, we will investigate again to see if there is a cheaper and better third party internet provider for our guests. At the moment our current provider is the best option especially as they are also willing to provide us with those first 15 minutes... More

Very chilled hostel, open fires so cosy. Lots of more 'mature' people, not kids boozing all night and getting excited about a 'flouro' party. Great place to base a ski trip, or just to relax. Highly recommended.

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment and one of our party stayed in the lodge so we can comment on both parts of Pinedale. The service was great, Tim and Penny are very helpful and accommodating and helped us out with booking an extra night when we needed to. The lodge beds are very comfortable and warm and the... More

Room was very small, compared to other places I stayed at in NZ for similar price, like no room to put your bags on the floor, TV reception wasn't very good at all. Decor was very old. We got the private double, the only thing was that the room was accessed from outside the house, not inside, where all the... More

Thanks so much for your feedback on our Budget Private Double Room. We are renovating this room in April, so it's nice and smart before the next winter season and working on providing space-efficient storage. As for it's size and situation, we will double check all our internet listings to make sure they say the Budget Private Double Room is... More

We stayed in the apartment for 2 nights. The apartment was cozy and spacious, with a well equipped kitchen. As the apartment is situated separately from the lodge, it offers plenty of privacy as well. It comes with 2 bedrooms and a small garden. Perfect for small families in my opinion. Tim and Penny (the hosts) were warm, friendly and... More

The Pinedale apartment has a really homely feel to it and provides all the little extras that make holidaying so much easier. The kitchen is decked out with all you need to cook for yourself and apartment is quite spacious. We had an awesome week there - and couldn't fault anything.

My daughter and I loved our stay in the Apartment and the hospitality shown to us by Penny and her husband Tim. The Apartment was spacious, clean and modern. Right in the centre of Methven. If you were going skiing up Mt Hutt, a bus would pick you up out the front.

My friends and I stayed at Pinedale for four nights in the Ski Season this year and had a great time. Everyone was really friendly and not having a car didn't matter because they managed to take us everywhere we wanted to go in the Pinedale Van at a cheaper price than renting a car.

Beautifully renovated hostel in an old style cottage. Warm open fire, Plenty of kitchen space, and social space. Very friendly, genuine and helpful owners. Great base for back country tramping or the snow fields of Mt Hutt.
