Altamont Lodge is not luxury accommodation - each room sleeps up to 5 in a mixture of double, twin bunks and pullout bed and the bathrooms ate shared. That said the lounge with wood burning stove is very welcoming and there is a separate TV room. The kitchen and dining room is amazingly well equipped with salt and ground black pepper, tea and coffee provided. There are even sharp knives which is a real rarity for self catering along with a good variety of pots pans and utensils to cater for most meals. For the skiers and wet weathet trampers there is a drying room. Situated slightly closer to Treble Cone than Cardrona it is ideally situated for Wanaka's ski resorts and the Mount Aspiring Park.
One thing to be aware of, Noeline and Rod like to keep the windows open in the showers and loos so in winter these can get pretty cold - worth bringing a towelling robe or similar.
All in all though for the price it is excellent value for money - clean, quiet, comfortable and welcoming. What more can you ask?
