Summary

Ski Time Lodge has a nice variety of standard rooms, and larger, spacious condominiums for guests who want a little extra privacy and room. It's not bad value, and has a good location in Methven, New Zealand.

Quick Facts
    • Rooms and condominiums
    •  Ski storage
    • Great views

Ski Time Lodge really puts its best side forward. From the moment of arrival, that beautiful timber front gives the feel of a seriously cosy ski lodge. The rest of the establishment doesn't disappoint. They have two main types of accommodation on offer: a fairly standard array of mid range rooms, and some rather nice self contained condominiums. The rooms come with most of what you'd expect from a mid range hotel, including heating and bathrooms. Meanwhile, the condominiums are fully self contained, including fully functional kitchens. On top of this, they also throw in ski storage, a free laundry service and a decent common area. There's also an on site restaurant.

Overall, it certainly has the look and atmosphere of an authentic ski lodge, and will likely appeal to winter sportspeople looking to tackle the nearby Mount Hutt. Indeed, most of the rooms have great views of the mountain itself, which offers the South Island's largest ski area. The mountain can be reached in less than an hour from the hotel. Ski rental is possible from a number of stores in the center of Methven, which is likewise just a short drive. Ski Time's friendly staff are always happy to provide visitors with information on how to get the most out of their visit to the mountain.

  • Two Bedroom Apartment

Ski Time Villas & Apartments are right next door to Ski Time Lodge & Restaurant.

We like to think these are among the very best self-catering accommodation in Methven.  Our apartments have a great feel with tasteful decor throughout and high quality furnishings, fixtures and fittings.  Some of them have views to Mt Hutt. They are spacious and well appointed.

The 2 bedroom apartments have a super-king bed or 2 x single beds in each bedroom. The bathroom has a bathtub and shower, underfloor heating, heated mirror and towel rack. An open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area including a fully appointed kitchen, gas fireplace, Sky TV, DVD player, sound system, internet and laundry facilities.

This is the two bedroom apartment plus its connected studio.  So the studio becomes your master suite and the extra friends or kids have the other two bedrooms with the shared bathroom.  Feedback from families has been very full of praise…

The three bedroom apartments have a super-king bed or 2 x single beds in each bedroom, 2 bathrooms (1 with bathtub and 1 with shower), an open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area including a fully appointed kitchen, gas fireplace, Sky TV, DVD player, internet and laundry facilities.

Surf & Other Activities

Methven's biggest draw is its nearby Mount Hutt, which offers the South Island's largest ski area. There's no accommodation on the mountain itself, meaning most skiers use Methven as a base for trips out to the slopes. Ski Time's staff are fairly knowledgeable about the mountain, and can help provide advice on how to get there.

Of course, Methven isn't just about skiing. The pituresque countryside around the village is brimming with opportunities for adventure, including hiking, trout fishing, cycling and even ballooning
