We only spent one night here , arrived mid afternoon, set up camp and had a good look around . An absolutely stunning location . Opted for a feed in tge restaurant thinking it would be fairly average due to the isolation. WRONG a fantasic meal cold beer and friendly service and not too expensive. Then back for one of the best hot showers in NZ Visited Edoras the next day , great short walk don't forget the bug repellant. .

a group of 18 of us stayed two nights at Mt Potts 6 in Stag cottage the rest in hotel rooms. We were all very happy with our clean comfortable accommodation. Our dinners for both nights were delicious and reasonably priced. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Wonderful view and lots of walks on offer. A wonderful morning at close by Erewhon riding a wagon drawn by Clydedales.

We had a wonderful evening here. The rooms were comfortable, the food was great, the staff very friendly. The location is absolutely beautiful and and easily accessible to Mt Sunday if you're a Lord of the rings fan.

Wish we had stayed here but we camped for free by the lakes further south. We had some of the best burgers ever after hiking Mt Sunday here and a wonderful, fresh salad in lieu of fries. I suggest staying and also eating here!

A location with a lot to offer but offers nothing , the top level rooms are good but the level of service or even care is extremely low , there is a good restaurant and bar facility but they do their very best to make sure you don't use it , a shame as this could be a very good lodge but it will need to be taken over by somebody that actually cares and has an interest in it. Bring what ever you need as there is nothing here.
