8/10 Very good

Back again to ski second year in a row.
This was our second trip to Snow Denn and we had another enjoyable stay. The owner is very friendly and helpful and it was great to see how much her young child had grown since our visit last year. Our boys were happy to be back. The kitchen and bathroom were nice and clean and the other guests friendly and quiet. Nice central location, very near to both supermarkets and in town eateries. All very short walking distance.

6/10 Good

Good Bathrooms, Kitchen & dining room with fireplace, and lounge room. Located fairly close to shops and food & beverage outlets and has private car parking on site available. However the room I stayed in (twin dorm with bunk bed) was really small and had bad soundproofing so all the noise from people talking in kitchen and dining room, shower and toilet came straight through the walls.

So cosy my boys didn't want to go home!
My two young boys and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Snow Denn Lodge. It was a lovely warm and welcoming hostel, with comfy made up beds and a wood burning stove lit each evening in the kitchen/dining/common area. The kitchen was well equipped and clean and there was a lovely big dining table that was great for meeting other Lodge residents around. I loved that I could easily recycle our waste and even feed food scraps to the owners' chooks (via collection bucket). My boys loved hanging out in the comfortable lounge area upstairs, with great views over to Mount Hutt. We even met another family to ski with through staying here. They come back annually, apparently. Plus, when a favourite cuddly toy was accidentally left behind, Laura, one of the owners, located it and is couriering it home to us. Great, friendly service from her, partner Tim and baby Tessa!! I'm sure we'll be back...
