Very good for the young family or budget traveller in mind. At this property you have access to full facilities kitchen facilities - the rooms are basic and the emenities are shared.

There is a Games room, lounge and a bar

Short walk to the National Park Village

Room Tip: Note Wifi is free until you reach your 500mb limit then you have to pay

Arrived very late at night due to keys not working at the place we were renting. Kevin on duty was incredibly helpful and got my daughter and I a room for the night. Very, very comfy bed and so warm! In the morning Bruce was very understanding and even did us a deal! Great work guys, everyone so helpful and friendly.

Wonderful place! Has everything you need and would be especially good for families or long stays. Staff were amazingly accomadating, we turned up when they were crazy busy and run off there feet and clearly flustered but they stayed so professional and helpful and lovly! They had all the time in the world for us.
The beds are super comfy, kinda crampt rooms but you expect that in a place like this and for the price you get your moneys worth!
Layout is great for socialising at night and all the facilities are great
Sooo handy having rental gear on site plus its so much cheaper than renting up the mount!
One of the nest places i have stayed!

We loved the facilities, the hot tubs were amazing after a days skiing and the lounge with fire was nice and cosy too. Ski hire was reasonable and the lodge is in a good location to ski either Whakapapa or Turoa. The kitchen and toilets were both clean. The room was basic but for the price it did the job. However our room was in a separate building to the lodge, which was quite impractical in the cold winter nights. Also just a suggestion to make the free tea and coffee also available in the kitchen..
