Nothing was a problem for Tony and Wes. Rooms were roomy with plenty of beds to allow the price to be kept down. Kitchen and dining bar area were idea from families coming and going. Bbq with plenty of space for arriving guests to meet and greet. Bar was open when required. Would recommend for a large group

Methven is a ski resort and normally Barkers would be closed in the summer, they opened up to support the accommodation crisis in Christchurch. The owner did everything to make our stay... More

great location- half hours drive from Mt Hutt. Lovely lodge. We stayed for 4 nights- Room with ensuite which was clean and comfortable. Also a small fridge if needed, though we had a nice continental breakfast each morning included in the very reasonable price, and we opted to have our evening meal at the lodge in the dining room each...
