Thanks for that Johan - it was a nice quiet time while you were here. Some people like that and some like the bustle of a lot of people...hope you return...Lynn

Very clean everywhere in the Lodge. Comfortable rooms and the large communal kitchen has all the mod cons required. Lovely outlook to well kept gardens where you can sit outside and enjoy the sun with a glass of wine, or use the large lounge with its great games cupboard. It is fun to socialize with other visitors if you feel like a chat, otherwise just continue reading that book.

Great little place to stay in Wanaka! Extremely clean/tidy, well-organized, and one of the best self-catering kitchens I've seen, hosts are lovely. Parking on-site, and other facilities (including hot tub) are great. Well located - couple minutes (drive) up the road from the town centre, but still within walking distance - or they even have bikes you can borrow. Very conveniently located on the road out to Mt Aspiring - so super close to nearby attractions such as Roy's Peak, Wildwire Wanaka, Diamond Lakes etc. Highly recommend/would stay again!

Awesome place to stay. The welcome was warm and the children absolutely loved it. Perfect if you are tramping or want somewhere to cook your own food. We would definitely stay there again. Good location

Taking the opportunity due to COVID lockdowns to do some domestic travel I stayed here for 2 weeks while skiing and trail riding in the Wanaka area. Altamont is really well priced and has all the facilities you need. The shared kitchen, dining and lounge area make for a more social stay and the opportunity to interact with many other travellers. Highly recommended.
