“The fact that you are walking distance to the Hooker Valley Track is amazing. The communal kitchen had one of the most spectacular direct views of Mount Cook. Mary who welcomed us at reception was knowledgeable and caring and patient with all of our questions. This lodge is perfect for the couple who is looking for simply quiet and comfort.”

“The lodge is in the perfect location, in the upper village near the Department of Conservation Visitor Centre. It is small and cosy which gives the personal touch. Lots of trees and bushes all around add to this. The common room has a view as good as The Hermitage and has a front deck with a barbecue to sit and dine while enjoying the stunning view. The kitchen was spotless and well equipped.”

“Our room was upstairs with a great view of Mt Cook, tea making facilities, ensuite bathroom and TV. Great communal kitchen and lounge with comfortable seating, and outside balcony area taking advantage of panoramic views. Friendly welcoming staff and management. Cannot fault this establishment and highly recommend.”
