“This is a small lodge with great staff in a beautiful setting.”
Reviewed 10 November 2010

The fabulous weather and great views may have influenced my review but even so this is a wonderful lodge if you don't like large hotels. The staff couldn't have been nicer and more accomodating and the lay out of the lodge led to getting to know other guests which I find interesting. The rooms are fine but there is a common room with a full kitchen and a magnifient view of Mt. Cook. We spent most of our free time in this room either eating, drinking, looking at the view or playing games.

The alpine lodge was an unexpected treat in Mt. Cook National Park. The view was the best I've ever had in a hotel; I was able to check the weather on Mt. Cook while lying in bed! The rooms were spare, but the communal lounge and kitchen were comfortable and well-equipped. The owners were the friendliest people I met on the south island.

We stayed at the logde for 1 night in July with friends and were thrilled when we arrived - the view from our room and the lounge and deck is stunning! Our rooms were small but clean and had good heating!
The owner was very friendly and booked us into the restaurant nearby!
Overall this is fantastic accomodation when not wanting to spend too much! We will most certainly be back and highly reccomend! Thankyou for a wonderful saty in Mt Cook!

Good cheaper alternative to the Hermitage and literally a stones throw away so identical views. Small bedrooms but large shared areas with plenty of cooking facilities, fridge etc. Great location for walks around Mount Cook. Would advise taking food and cooking your own meals as Hermitage quite pricey and the only other option (Mountaineers cafe) was overpriced for poor food.

I really liked this hotel. The staff were incredibly helpful, especially one guy who knocked on my door to ask if I'd left some stuff in the corridor( including my newly acquired digicam).

This lodge is located right next door to the Hermitage. Great place to stay for the value. Easy access to trails and can dine either at Hermitage and/or Old Mountaineer Cafe - both great options. Shared kitchen in the common room is convenient. Rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable. Great views of Mt Cook from all rooms! Highly recommend.
