I love staying at LKNZ Lodge. I have varied my experience with the type of rooms I have stayed in. I first stayed in the super cheap accommodation, which was excellent value for money. It is more basic than some of their other rooms, but it is very sociable and you get to meet so many lovely people. It has nice comfy beds, great showers and a nice kitchen/lounge set up for the guests. Each time I stay I meet new people and people that return to the lodge.
I have also stayed in one of the private rooms in Matai lodge. Great comfortable beds, really warm bedrooms and common areas, we even made the fire and watched films when the mountain was closed, super cosy. The showers are lovely and powerful and the room is nice and spacious.
The staff there are great. They are very helpful and always willing to help. I love the bar there, it is great value and they have lovely toasties (try the Sloppy Joe Toastie!).
