Great location and environment. Excellent food. Love the staff! So close to great hiking. I will definitely book outings with them for my next visit.
Just had a look and was impressed
Glenorchy is a lovely, quiet town in a beautiful valley between impressive mountains. Our stay here was truly special thanks to the warm hospitality of the family running the Base Camp as well as the amazing staff working around the clock. Thank you!
I stayed here for a magical 2.5 weeks with my son as a base for tramping adventures - they couldn't get rid of us! Doug, Liz, and Ned were wonderful hosts and looked after us superbly. The cabins are beautiful, the food amazing, and the showers were bliss after a long sweaty day. It really was a perfect base camp for us and it felt like coming home each time we returned from a trip. It's also located close to everything you need, including the all-important real fruit ice-cream caravan. Our guided trip was an awesome highlight for both of us - it was brilliant to see my son's confidence grow as he scrambled around the mountains. I can't wait to come back 🙂
Loved our one night stay. Wish we stayed for 2 nights at least. Our room, the common toilets and showers were all clean. I was hesitant to book at first because of the common toilets and showers but it turned out okay. The staff were all friendly. It was definitely a different experience for our kids. Everything was amazing apart from the rainy evening that we had. There will definitely be a next time!

Cosy Hut - Winter Adventures and Accommodation in Glenorchy
Inspired by the historic mountaineer’s huts that typify the New Zealand Southern Alps, our accommodation has been created by adventurers for adventurers…

Among a host of other inclusions, we have a sauna, our popular ‘Base Camp Food Over Fire’ licensed wood-fired restaurant, fire pits, festoon lighting, Wifi (although we encourage a different kind of connection) and have gone to some trouble with the little things that we think make all the difference.
