I cannot be certain whether the friendly owner had given us the largest unit in the establishment, but for an off-peak rate of NZD 85, the unit we had for the night was certainly more than worth it!
Located in Methven, which is essentially the nearest town to Mt Hutt, we would probably expect the township to be filled to the brim during the winter season. However, we still visited in early authum as we had wanted to experience one of the best ballooning rides all round.
The unit given to us was humongous. Besides a living room, dining area and full kitchen, we had 2 bedrooms which could sleep a total of 7 people, 1 bathroom, 1 toilet, 1 laundry room complete with washing machine and dryer, and somewhat of a backyard.
The entire unit was well-equipped, and we could only imagine the convenience it would bring to a family of skiers who would be coming in the next season.
Located just a short 3 minutes drive to the centre of the Methven township, it was plesantly convenient when we had to wake up at 430am in the morning to commence our ballooning trip the next morning.
