Double Lodge Room was very small. The bed was pushed right against the wall so if you are the unlucky one to sleep near the wall, you have to inconvenience the other person if you need to get out of bed. Communal showers are claustrophobic, the cubicles were the smallest I have ever experienced and I am a small person!...

Thank you for your feedback, which we value. It is always disappointing when guests do not feel they received value for money. Your original booking was for 2 persons - but your party was infact 5 persons. The additional guests were accommodated in one of our self contained units which we trust you enjoyed as no comment was made on...

Treated with respect, kindness and great hospitality I could easily say this is one of the best backpackers I've been in NZ. Cosy sleeping rooms, big tv in the tv room, swimming pool, kitchen and bathrooms are crystal clean.

Stayed here in 2013 just for one night, so decided on a couple of nights this time whilst on holiday from the UK. We had one of the Garden apartments, lovely room, clean tidy and well equipped. Had a small veranda facing the lawn, ideal for sipping your evening drinks. The lovely decor is characteristic of Anne and Dion, lots...

My wife and I love going back to Anndion Lodge and given that we have stayed there five times now having tried all of their self-contained units and their double room unit with family is a good indication that we are more than satisfied.

“I am not sure what you mean by this, but I think management would be wise to spot check the cleaning and presentation of rooms. Also the communal dishwasher would have benefited from actually been cleaned, the filter and arms inside. and a dishwasher cleaner put through regularly. My sister and I did this and it worked beautifully.”
