Fodor's Expert Review Mt. Hutt Lodge
45 Zig Zag Rd., Methven, Canterbury, 7572, New Zealand
If you’ve come south for the views and outdoor activities then the Mt. Hutt Lodge delivers. By day you’ll look out across the magnificent sometimes turquoise Rakaia River toward Mt. Hutt, the area’s main ski field. By night you’ll be amazed at the clarity of the sky and sheer depth of stars. Rooms are clean and pleasant with an eclectic mix on offer from motel units to time-share apartments of up to three bedrooms. There’s a small restaurant on-site and Butch’s Angus Beef Ribeye is the pick.
- close to great fishing spots, skiing, golf, and tramping
- the building is very 1970s and a bit tired
- it’s a 15-minute drive from Methven, so you’ll need a car to get here
