Does anyone know of any hotels with 2 x dbl beds? the choices are very bad especially city hotels closed.
I really regret booking flights now.
There are hardly any choices in Methven either and they are ridiculously expensive for more than 2 people.
Whereas there are so much accommodation in queenstown, wanaka all competing for business with rates <$100 and many big rooms with 2 x dbl beds.
We arrive 2/7 midnight and leave 9/7 at 7am which only leaves us 6 days. Our option of flying to queentown is too expensive (no cheap fares) and driving would leave us with 4 days only.
But if we stay in Mt Hutt/Christchurch, our accommodation bill is about $250 p/night. Way too expensive for the hotels which is only $100 when it's not ski season.
Only thing is Mt Hutt has a great deal for kids ski free, stay free, eat free etc but the stay free is BS because you have to pay loads for the triple/family rooms anyway. If it's truly stay free, we should get a free upgrade to family rooms.
Sorry for the rant. Would love a recommendation for a hotel/area to stay within 30 to 45mins of Mt Hutt? not christchurch but not Methven either...I am just not familiar with the area.
Also, can someone tell me how long it takes from methven to mt hutt?
or should we skip it altogether and visit the coastal route to blenheim and ski at Hanmer Springs? much more hotel options at affordable prices.
