Review of Rata Lodge
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Feb 2023
We stayed overnight as a couple in the en-suite family room. We were given useful info in advance and made to feel right at home when we arrived. The accommodation had all we needed to cook ourselves a meal and have a restful night.
Best of all, the views of the surrounding mountains from this place are absolutely STUPENDOUS.

      Lovely hostel in the bush, very clean and cozy and had everything we needed. We had a minor car issue and the hosts were super helpful and kind during our time of stress! Highly recommend staying here when exploring Athurs Pass.

      I lucked into this little gem and thoroughly enjoyed my night in this tiny place (2 rooms plus a small dorm). Welcoming hosts, great facilities and even a glow-worm display at night. Trains chugging up the valley add to the ambience. Perfect and very handy for trampers.

      Great place to stay. Super clean, comfy and friendly! We arrived late and they had even turned on the electric blanket in the bed so it was warm for when we got there! Highly recommend a stay, set in beautiful location

      This Hostel is in Otira, the middle of nowhere. The house looks old from the outside but is very lovely on the inside! Everything is clean. The beds are super comfy and you'll find everything you need in the kitchen. Be aware that it can get quite chilly in the night, but there are heated mattresses, so this shouldn't be an issue! Vikki, the host is very nice, she already send us an e-mail in advance with some information and gave us even more tipps for places to visit before we left. It really is a nice and quiet place for a stopover after a long day!

      We stayed one night in a family room. It was lovely, spotlessly clean, cozy and comfortable. Vicky was welcoming and helpful, and the kitchen was very well equipped. Our electric blankets were turned on ready for us to retire to cozy warm beds. Beautiful surroundings.
