Liked: Everything. We booked a budget double and were upgraded to a better one due to space. When we booked to return they gave us the better one at the same price, so another upgrade!The staff were really helpful, and took the time to explain the different activities and prices to us. Also has incredible views down over Queenstown,

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: We loved our stay at Hippo Lodge! It has a great atmosphere and the staff are very friendly. You get given a bit of free internet for every night you stay, which was cool, and the location was great (although you do have to walk up a bit of a steep hill to get to it!). We would definitely recommend this place, and would stay here again.

City break, Family Holiday, Sightseeing & culture

Liked: Nice view of the city and the lake harbour

Disliked: Our room was next to the lounge and camping area, if you want to get up early, or rest at night this is not the place, so many young people making noise until 2am. Also there were just one bathroom (1 toillet, 1 shower) for at least 5 rooms. Kitchen was messy and no one was taking care of it, so if someone have a party the night before, you had to have your breakfast in a messy place.

Liked: Hippo lodge was located close to the centre of town, about 4 minutes, and the staff were very helpful. The rooms were well-heated and the kitchen and bathrooms clean and well-equipped. The showers were also very nice (and warm!).

Disliked: I did not like how there were no staff past 11PM, however we did travel during the shoulder season.
