If you do not like luxury, then you will not like Lake Ohau Lodge.
If you do not like incredible views of that take your breath away, you will not like this lodge.
If you do not like the most friendly, hospitable people New Zealand has to offer, you will definitely not like this place.
If you do not like very reasonably priced, clean and comfortable accommodation in a laid-back, welcoming atmosphere, you will also not like this lodge.
If you have an aversion to five star three course meals day in day out, then avoid Lake Ohau Lodge.
If you do not appreciate your kids being fed and entertained by lodge staff throughout the leisurely evening while you sip mulled wine on the couch in front of a crackling fire, then don't go to Lake Ohau Lodge during the school holidays.
If you don't like to sit in a jacuzzi after a hard day skiing, cold beer in hand, then you'll have a hard time enjoying Lake Ohau Lodge.
If you prefer to bask in the winter sunshine lazily reading a book in the quiet front room while everyone else pounds down the snow-capped mountain just 15 minutes away, then I warn you, don't go to Lake Ohau Lodge.
In summary, if your goal is perfection then Lake Ohau Lodge is not the place for you.
Thank you Lake Ohau staff (and P.S. your Jersey's were the best thing we bought all holiday!)
