Bobbies Mt Hutt, Methven

 Great, tidy, spacious and close to Methven center. We had a great stay and will be back :) A+ 

Spacious, Country Cottage with mountain views.

 Super friendly staff , and the cottage was just perfect for our 2 families, everything we needed and more. Thank you!! 

Large country villa in the heart of Methven

 The lodge was a real special place to have friends and family stay for my birthday. With so many people (24) there was always something to be doing in either the massive lounge with the large fire and pool table or dining room with smaller fire and beautiful wooden tables. The facilities were top notch with enough ovens, fridges, toilets and showers for everyone to not feel like you were stepping on toes. The bedrooms were warm and comfy and the decor looked like something from a magazine! 

Spacious, Country Cottage with mountain views.

 Great location, few minutes walk into town and a short drive to Mt Hutt. Good facilities for larger groups.

 House was lovely, had everything you could need. Great stay 

Bobbies Mt Hutt, Methven

 Simple place that had all you need and was spotless on arrival, it's a great location being walking distance to everything. Plenty of firewood ready to go meant a cosy lounge. The only negative would be the shower, it's not the strongest and in a chilly bathroom it's not ideal post a day on the slopes.
