    The rooms are old with basic facilities. My family was in Maitland Wing triple room, my concern is very much the bunker. The space between upper & lower bunker is too low that I cannot sit up at all. I'm an Asian with 5'5, just...More

    I think overall this is a really lovely review so thank you. The Maitland wing charge for dinner, bed and breakfast is $111 per person for two adults and most guests would comment that this is a fair price - and if you have children...More

    We stayed in the lodge after a lovely day of cycling from Twizel. The lodge is dated probably early 1960's for the room we stayed in. The furniture is of the era. As if you stepped back in time however furniture no longer new and...More

    Oh dear, I find this review a little depressing. I guess the Lodge is not for everyone. Today I have had two separate comments from guests staying who both were overwhelmingly saying how special and unique the Lodge was BECAUSE of its 1970's architecture. They...More

    Thank you for your review. We have in fact just changed our brand of shampoos etc to the Forest and Bird brand. Every time you use one of these products a percentage of its value goes directly to Forest & Bird to support their invaluable...More

    Hi there, thank you for your review. I'm so glad that you loved it. The Contiki rooms are our cheaper Maitland wing rooms which are simple but have all the requirements including a bath. We have been told many times by our guests NOT to...More
