I was very pleasantly surprised as I'd never been to a lodge before. Helen was super friendly as were the guests. The rooms were clean, tidy and comfy. The bathrooms were clean as was the kitchen. The place was ideally situated not far from town and in a quiet green spot. Great value for money

The motel (room and shared bathroom) is very clean. It has a huge dining area where utensils of each room are neatly organized in the cupboards. They have a water dispenser that dispenses hot water. Shared washroom has 2 toilets and 2 bathrooms. i would say that it is enough despite the lodge having no vacancies. hair dryer is available...

This is a great place to stay, it is immaculate. The kitchen and dining area can accommodate several groups and the refrigeration/storage areas are separated into room allocations. There is alarge garden with plenty of tables and chairs, and the big bonus is a spa- great after a long trek.

This is the perfect place to stay and discover Wanaka and its surroundings. Helen was helpful and kind, and the lodge was clean, well maintained and very cosy with perfect and organized fascilities. I walked the distance towards the city's center many times and it's a really nice walk along the gorgeous lake.

Never stayed anywhere so clean and organised! Tried to steal staff to come home with me. It is a wooden chalet style building, so the walls are things and it does creak in the high winds. I was lucky to have a room upstairs, where there is only one other room so very private. Cannot imagine getting this quality at...

This is the best place that we have stayed for our 13 days NZ trip! Helen is very friendly and helpful, she showed us every corner of the place even to the designated kitchen cabinet. Yes, I am very impressed with the kitchen. It's so organized, spacious, and fully-equipped. We like the nice wooden wall. The place is so comfortable...

What an enjoyable stay! Helen the manager made sure we had everything we needed. She was extremely friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The lodge was clean, tidy and very homely. Would highly recommend this place! We will be back!

Although our stay was generally good and the place was clean, one of the main reasons I had booked it was for the hot tub, which was not working. It would have been nice to be informed of that and offered the option to cancel as a result.

I love this place! Its quiet, super clean and excellent value for money. I stayed in a double room with shared bathroom. It had plenty of storage. I loved the kitchen and communal lounge, both were very spacious. Staff are also very friendly and helpful. I cant fault Altamont lodge at all

This is a lodge not a hotel. As such you are sharing space such as the huge lounge and kitchen, with strangers. As many of them come from other countries you are also guaranteed an interesting and educational conversation. The bedrooms are not huge but fine for a couple (as we were) - probably a little cramped for families who...
