We had a fantastic stay in the apartment. We had troubles with the gas bottles and really appreciated the extra trips Clare made into Methven to sort out the issue for us. The apartment had everything we needed and it was great that the bus up to the ski fields stopped right outside the door. We actually stayed in September...

Snow on the ground, sunny blue skies and freezing temperatures but inside was warm and welcoming. On arrival we settled in and read the Guest information book. You could just tell that the Clare and team had a good sense of humor. We stayed in the Apartment and it was very private with a small deck with chairs, table and...

Very convenient in centre of the town of Methven. We had everything we wanted in the apartment. It was much more spacious than we expected and very well appointed. We plan another trip there nex summer

5 couples stayed for 4 days & it was great fun. It has the perfect set up as a ski lodge. Plenty of hot water, loads of firewood, lodge-like kitchen & communal tables. Easy walk into town. The beds were a little short for the tallest among us but we'd all return. Maybe we'll even bring the kids next time...

Had a big group of boys away for the weekend. We rented out the whole place and found it great. Good stereo with a connector for music players, two fires to keep the place warm along with night store heaters in each room. Great facilities for a weekend away with a large group. My only complaint was that the cues...

Hi, Thanks for your review. We're glad you had fun at our Lodge. We have only just taken over the Lodge and have plans lined up to improve the Lodge and make it more of a holiday home and away from the backpacker image it has. We have already done some improvements and the last few days I actually fixed...

My son & I stayed in the apartment for 3 days - very comfortable and well located. Penny was great, helping us out immediately with a couple of minor issues on day 1. As usual in NZ everyone - local or tourist was very friendly and helpful.

A cosy, friendly and relaxed atmosphere, Pinedale would definately be my first choice of accomodation when next returning to Methven. Feeling more like a hotel than a hostel, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The rooms, bathrooms and living area were always clean and tidy, fellow travellers were sociable and welcoming and features such as the 'love pit' really made...

I stayed at Pinedale with a friend and we both feel in love with the place and didn't want to leave. It is a small hostel with only a few bedrooms but has a huge communal space with two open fires, a long dining table, book exchange, pool table and the infamous love pit!
