We had a great stay here. The staff were super attentive & helpful. The amenities were basic but really all we needed. The room was clean and spacious. The restaurant exactly what we needed. Would definitely recommend. Only down side is that it is noisy at night with the music from the pub next door.

It was OK. It was close to the Blue Pub which was great and the beds were comfy. Expected the room to be bigger as we were a party of five and paying a premium. Security a real issue. Back door to the hotel was open all night and we listened to the latecomers come using when the pubs closed. The hotel was massively understaffed while we were there. I overheard the staff telling some other guests the reasons why. Felt sorry for the ones that were there working and doing their best. If it was marketed as a backpackers rather than four star hotel my review would be different.

We stayed here in July for 5 nights with two children. The rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. There is a drying room for ski equipment, a great family friendly restaurant and bar in the same complex that we ate in most nights. All the staff are friendly and helpful and the location is right in the centre of Methven so close to lots of other restaurant options. Toast and cereal is available for breakfast in a nice lounge area which is a bonus if you are trying to get your family ready for the mountain early.

Booked in here for 2 nights in February on the good reviews on TA. Found it was a great experience with my arrival being a tad early the very friendly lady let me check in to my room earlier. She then showed me upstairs where I could have my complimentary continental breakfast the next morning. Had dinner in the crossroads restaurant and bar. It was a great price for a portahouse, salad and chips for 15$.*a Monday night special on the menu. All in all from my room throughout the whole lounge area bar and restaurant it was spotlessly clean as.

If you like good walks, biking or relaxing Methven is a great place to go. We stayed at The Lodge which was comfortable and suited our needs. A breakfast was included in the price which was adequate but could have done with some fruit being available.
