We stayed in this Lodge one night in December on a trip around the South Island.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and as inexpensive and basic accommodation, it was fine for one night.
The room I was in was reasonably clean, although I felt that the bunk could have had a wipe down. The toilet was not conveniently located, as I had to walk through a downstairs living area to get to it. As it is located on the main road, you can sometimes hear heavy vechile traffic, but this didn't bother me.
