10/10 Exceptional

Really unique and high quality stay!
We booked this hotel last minute (day before stay) as a stop between Aoraki and Te Anau (we didn’t want to stop in Queenstown). Unfortunately the weather was awful with rain and gale force winds. The staff at the hotel were amazing at communicating the conditions, including letting us know in advance that the restaurants at Cardrona would all be closed. They encouraged us to pick up groceries before heading up to the hotel. Drive up to the hotel: as many other reviewers have mentioned, the road is unpaved and quite steep at some parts. In addition to the poor weather conditions with very poor visibility, it was a slow and careful drive up. We stayed in the studio and it was perfect! Very clean, practical, with excellent quality furnishing. We really loved this place. The weather cleared beautifully the next day and the drive back down the mountain was breathtaking.

If you can handle the drive up there, the views are out of this world. A fantastic place to stay.

Amazing views and sunset
Was a very quick stay as had to checkout very early due to some activities we had planed. Driving up around 9pm gave us some wonderful views and once we reached the top seen one the most spectacular sun sets we have ever seen! They guy helping us checkin was great and super friendly - I can imagine how popular this place would be during sky season.

6/10 Good

The property is perfectly located in summer for those wanting to undertake walks or mountain biking. There's also the newly commenced gravel karts which were super fun. The biggest issues with the property are summed up in 2 points: 1. the beds are so soft it is ridiculous. We weren't sure if they were old, designed that way, or both. Either way, a crook/sore back is almost guaranteed each morning from the experience; and 2. the road up to Cardrona Alpine remains unsealed, and if ungraded (as was our fortune), then the corrugation is at its best, providing a slightly skittish and unnerving trip both up and down the 12km road each time you venture to/from the property. Overall, the staff were wonderful, super helpful. We enjoyed the location once there, even with the limited options for food and entertainment.
