Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Booked for the Cabins, which is in the Campground. A completely separated part of their "Lodge & Apartments". THIS IS NOT CLARIFIED IN THEIR WEBSITE. Showers are NOT included. Washers dryers NOT included. And communal amenities are none of those shown in pictures. "Access to the lounge" is a completely different one than advertised (no pictures displayed).

Comfortable, clean accommodation, friendly and helpful staff and a great lounge facility. Easy walking distance to the township and Opuke Spa Pools (a MUST to visit). Methven is a cute and quirky town with fantastic views of the mountains, great eateries and a safe, fun vibe. A trip to the mountains to ski or snowboard is very easy to organise for a reasonable price.

After our flight was cancelled in Queenstown, we decided to drive home. We arrived late at the lodge. So grateful for a warm, cozy clean room. Had a great sleep in a comfy bed. Didnt get to try the spa, but will next time for sure. Epic views of the mountains. The host was friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again.

Very friendly and easy check-in, clean and comfortable room and bed, standard breakfast. Not many parking spots. Spa and sauna not used but looked inviting. Staff offered to help source an evening takeaway meal as all restaurants were booked out.

The accommodation was adequate but expensive for what was provided. The breakfast only had weetbix and cornflakes and basic bread for toast with limited spread options (no marmalade). Little things like only one teaspoon in the room and no PowerPoint near a mirror so it makes it difficult to dry your hair. The wall sockets were vertical type fixed horizontally, that makes my wonder if they were fitted by someone who wasn’t an electrician.

Friendly and welcoming staff. Centrally located in Methven - handy to everything (though Methven is a small village). Very dated and tired room which didn't match expectations based on marketing imagery.

Great value and location for electric camping site while skiing at Mt. Hutt. Walkable to everything you need. They were also super accommodating and let us check out late to ski on check out date. Would definitely stay again!

A great place to stay for skiing - the ski bus stops right outside. The spa and sauna provide welcome relieve at the end of the day. The rooms are comfortable with heating and electric blankets. A complimentary continental breakfast was provided early for the snow trippers.

Lovely people running the place. Really helpful. Enjoyed the spa. And nice to have free breakfast and warm room. We had a car accident the night before and staff remembered and were really kind about it.
