What can I saw about this place. We could not have been happier. Methven is a beautiful little town, not too far from Mt Hutt ski fields. We stayed at abisko 3 bed appartment with 3 families (9 people in all). The apartments are perfectly located with a very short easy wall to town for meals, ski hire or shopping....

Abisko Lodge was a great place to stay with very friendly and kind owners, Morne and Steph. Perfect location if you want to go to Mt Hutt Ski Field. A coach even has daily pick-ups outside of the lodge for the ski field. The room I stayed in was spacious, clean, tidy and comfortable. They have a spa and sauna...

This was a well designed building for the ski market, with all the mode cons that cater to that market but not quite there for the commercial traveller market. Need to have a table and chairs, TV small. If your a skier and want the social activity that goes with bragging about your exploits of the day. Close to plenty...

We stayed for two nights in our campervan and would say it is the preferred of the two campgrounds in Methven for its location. The camping site is just a kind of back section to the lodge and is not picturesque in anyway but was well kept, with all usual facilities and absolutely fine for the purposes of being central...

“For 1 or 2 people ask for the apartment out back. Its fairly private with good heat, kitchenette, outside sitting area, comfy double bed,couch, small wardrobe and dining table. The shower/bathroom is slightly narrow but adequate. I consider it a good value.”
