Having travelled from Brisbane to ski and do a bit of sightseeing, I stayed two lodges in Methven. The first place was awesome, no problem. After a few days staying elsewhere I came back to Methven and stayed in SkiTime for one night (thank goodness).
I was shown the room with a comment "this is a more economical room" $135NZ per night and supposedly 4 star?
The biggest problem are the paper thin walls/ceiling. I did ask to be moved to another room but apparently they were full. You can hear everything, walking on the creaking floor above, talking, coughing, sneezing, even snoring and not forgetting the toilet.
I didn’t have dinner there as it was priced too high for me, average about $34
I was surprised to see it was lacking in creature comforts, no even a headboard, They could have easily provided some of these, how much is a kettle?
No TV!, No kettle in room or tea/coffee, Wifi is super slow and unusable, No in room Fridge (I needed for medicine), No Spa, Bed pillows too soft, No headboard, Tiny En-suite, Tiny Wardrobe. (see pics). Coffee and Tea are provided free in the lounge area. Breakfast was included and consisted of continental with no hot food (except toast). The Motel is appx 15-20mins walk from town.
On the plus, the room was clean, staff friendly, in room heater provided.
If you want some sleep, I would definitely stay elsewhere or take good ear plugs.
