  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Loved it!

We stayed while on our honeymoon. The lodge is less than 1km from the base on Cardrona ski fields which was very convenient as we spent most days snow boarding. Angelo was a fantastic host and he is an amazing chef! We would definitely stay again.

Chi town

When we arrived the host was on phone in the common area. We did not feel that we could use area. There was a large spiderweb above dining table and in shower.

Great once you get there!

Fantastic venue on the Crown Ridge Road with spectacular views over Queenstown- but unfortunately the Cardrona road was closed due to rockfall on our way there so had to drive much further from Queenstown via Cromwell to reach Cardrona

5/5 Excellent

a perfect place to spend two-three nights or more

The house has a great interior design, with a touch of rustic old New Zealand, but at the same time a luxurious feel. The owner is an Italian - Australian chef, with plenty of charming stories during the breakfast. For those who like to socialise, this location is perfect: it has plenty of lounges and dining places for common usage. For those who like to do one day round trips or ski holidays, this location is perfect too.

Pros: The interior design; the friendly welcome of the staff and the owner; the homy feel; the New Zealand feel.

Cons: Given that the owner is a chef, a slightly richer breakfast will do better. Otherwise the breakfast was healthy, served in a stylish ambiance.

Location: The location is great: 5 minutes from Cardrona Hotel; perfect for one day round trips to Lake Tekapo or Cromwell; minutes away from Ski slopes.

5/5 Excellent

Sensational accommodation and food and scenery.

My husband and I had a mint experience at Cardrona Lodge and Angelo the owner was the most hospitable host, the most fantastic cook and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would recommend the lodge to anyone and everyone.

Pros: The food, the scenery, the room, the area, the facilities.

Cons: Really nothing as for us it filled all our expectations in every way, cleanliness, food, comfort, close proximity, welcoming and warm owners.

Location: Great pub and little shop near by.
