Mt Cook Lodging Options

Wagner Custome Skis
There is a small range of Mt Cook accommodation to cater to all budgets in the Mount Cook Village. Accommodation near the top of the Mt Cook Village offers majestic views of Aoraki Mt Cook that will mesmerize you for hours, whilst those at the bottom of the village just offer views of the other surrounding mountains (which are also beautiful).

Hermitage Hotel Mt Cook

The Mt Cook hotel is the Hermitage Mt Cook which is synonymous with the Mt Cook village because the grand hotel acts as a centre piece for the small settlement (even though it’s located at the top of the village). The main part of the Hermitage Hotel offers various luxurious hotel rooms, most with spectacular views of Mt Cook and the surrounding mountains. The Hermitage Hotel also has various facilities on offer including a small range of restaurants and drinking holes, and the Sir Edmund Hilary Centre. See our Hermitage Hotel review for more information.

Other Mt Cook Accommodation

Mt Cook motel accommodation is at the Aoraki Court Motel, although the quality of the lodging is much higher than what you’d expect for a motel with modern fittings and tasteful decor. Unit configurations include studios and 2 bedroom apartments, and all motel units have a kitchenette. The motel is adjacent to the Hermitage Hotel and the Sir Edmund Hilary Centre.

The Aoraki Mount Cook Alpine Lodge offers a moderate level of Mt Cook accommodation. All lodge rooms have an ensuite and come in a variety of configurations including twin, double and quad rooms. Many of the Aoraki Mount Cook Alpine Lodge rooms offer majestic views of Mount Cook, and the communal lounge and kitchen have large picture windows that show off the mega views. The lodge is located near the Mt Cook information centre, which is a 5 minute walk from the Hermitage.

Mt Cook Hostel

Very inexpensive lodging is on offer at the YHA Mount Cook. This is a good quality hostel, and reservations are commonly required. Lodging options include dorm rooms (4 or 8 bed) and private rooms with shared bathroom facilities. The YHA Mt Cook is about a 15 minute walk down the hill from the Hermitage Hotel.

About 15 minutes from Mt Cook National Park is Glentanner Park, a holiday park with powered campervan sites, tent sites, and cabins.
