A lovely studio with a full kitchen a separate bedroom, nice sitting /din. area and queen bed&Patio”

It was a little pricey in comparison to other places we stayed in New Zealand. We got it at the last minute and there wasn’t much else available in Mt Cook. We were glad we brought groceries in our cooler though. We would have brought more if we’d known there was a full kitchen. The email I rec’d from Mt Cook Lodge & Motels upon my booking thru Agoda was confusing and I couldn’t confirm anywhere online if we got a kitchen or not. Otherwise it was a beautiful studio with a nice view, not of Mt Cook but the surrounding mountains which were beautiful. I’d stay there again.

Magnificent Mount Cook!”

Excellent location. We stayed in the motel, essentially a studio unit with cooking facilities overlooking the mountains. Unit was well equipped and clean. Food in the lodge is limited to Bar and Grill so best to prepare prior to coming if you wanna DIY rather than eating bar food, waiting times can be long for dinner. We did the afternoon walk in Hooker Valley to the glacier lake, long but sceneries is just priceless. And also the star gazing tour at night: money worth spending, guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Mount Cook was the climax of our short one week adventure in the South islands!

Wonderful stay, great accommodation ”

Our stay at Mt Cook Lodge and Motels was amongst the best of our month-long visit to New Zealand. The weather was fantastic which meant we were able to enjoy the stunning scenery and surroundings from the comfort of our family apartment. The family apartment was ideal for us as two friends travelling together and everything was excellent. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Great choice of food options for such a small place. The only slight downside was the WiFi which was very limited, possibly not surprising given the location. I can not recommend this highly enough, other than to say that our two night stay was barely enough. We could have had a much longer stay very happily. However, that might not have been the case had the weather not been as good as it was. Highly recommend this!

Can be better”

We are somehow upgraded to the hotel from the Mt Cook Lodge & Motels, however the view we expected was totally different from what we booked. We suppose to have a mountain view, in the end we have a hotel connecter view. Its disappointing, but most of the time we are out and overall experience was considerable comfortable. The last thing is, when we ask for some utensils, the staff from room service cannot help to arrange and send to our room? We are asked to go and take on our own from the restaurant.... you say this is a hotel so please bring out some hotel standard in your service. Thank you

Convenient and comfy! Wifi is available...at a cost.”

The location is a dream if you intend to hike around the Mount Cook area and not relish having to drive up and down Lake Pukaki a few times. Room is well-stocked, spacious and clean. Our key complaint is that no free wifi is available despite accommodation in Mount Cook Village isn't exactly the cheapest around. This complaint has also been heard at the reception. Although the wifi can be purchased at $5 per day (Inexpensive by any means), it is not quite conceivable how patrons should be separately charged for such a basic amenity. The staffs here are courteous, friendly and professional.

Merioni's smile at front desk made our day during our checked-in and checked-out, special thanks to her for our room upgrade. It's my partner's birthday trip to Mount Cook and it coincides with our 18-monthsary celebration. We love the room with balcony, overlooking the majestic Mount Cook. So serene and peaceful. We were blessed to witness the Supermoon that shines the brightest as it makes its final appearance for 2017. So thank you again to Merioni and everyone else at the Front Desk and the Housekeeping staff.

Location and staff service

I enjoyed my stay at Mt Cook Lodge & Motel and the room and beds were value for money (I stayed in the 4 person dorm which was a hotel room converted with 2 double deck beds). The best bit of the Mt cook Lodge and Motel was the staff service and in this i would like to commend especially Mr Eueta (sorry if i got the name wrong spelt wrongly) who was the front desk Manager on the day i checked out. He was helpful in my queries and I sensed he goes to great lengths to ensure comfort of all guests of Mt Cook Lodge and Motels. He assisted me in getting a ride up the the pick up point at another lodge for the intercity bus. I wish him and all the staff of Mt cook Lodge and Motel all the best for the future

Would recommend, but with caution ”

The accommodation was fine, although There is not enough parking capacity in the designated parking area. . Mount Cook is hardly a “village”. It is two hotels and some hostel/backpacker accommodation. The only shop of any kind is in the Hermitage hotel and it offers almost no food supplies except junk food. The food in the very busy bar in Mount Cook Lodge (apparently only open in the evening) was good and not outrageously priced, but breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Hermitage Hotel, promoted by the check in staff, was too expensive.

We booked private unit here, and this place make us really surprise (perhaps I can blaim because insufficient info in Agoda). Room was spacious and clean, separate into bedroom and living room + kitchen (this make us feel guilty that we didnot bought foods from Twizel). You also can access room directly from car park, really convenient. Definitely we will stay here if we have a chance to visit Mount Cook again.

The location is excellent with superb views of Mount cook and other mountains. The staff is good and helpful. But the property and facilities lack in terms of value for money. Same breakfast is repeated everyday (atleast for the days we stayed). Facilities like spa pool and heated pools must be considered by the hotel as you are paying almost a five star price for three star property. Although anything in this remote location is much appreciated.

The hotel is at very strategic location. Hotel door is facing mount aoraki direction. Can cook in the hotel, but you need to buy the groceries before you arrive this area. The Hermitage has one convenient shop but only sell very basic food (snacks). The hotel restaurant only start operate at 3pm (with light bites). And the dinner time is start from 5.30pm.
