Self Contained Apartments

40 quality Two Bedroom Apartments, one bedroom with a queen bed & the other with two single beds. There is an open plan lounge/dining/kitchen with full kitchen facilities including a microwave, plus cable TV and internet access. The 2 bedroom apartments all have a spa bath and shower and separate toilet, they share a full laundry and most have superb views of the mountains.

Studio Rooms

40 Studio rooms of which 30 have one queen bed and 10 studios have two single beds. All studio rooms have limited kitchen facilities including a ceramic cooktop, shower, TV and they share a laundry.

Families & Groups

Our studio rooms sleep one or two people, while the two-bedroom apartments sleep two to four. For larger groups we make a 3 bedroom apartment by interconnecting a studio and a 2 bedroom apartment, accommodating up to six people. Our units are available for both short or long term and prices are seasonal, with higher rates being charged in the June to October ski season.


The multiple award winning Brinkley Restaurant (Shackletons Bar & Grill) is fully licensed and provides a fine selection of dishes from fresh New Zealand produce.

Pre-dinner drinks in the bar allow you to enjoy your favourite beverage or sample our wine after which you can be shown to your table by our friendly staff. We encourage our guests to linger and we are proud that our restaurant allows you to relax and enjoy the fine food and wine we offer. The open fire and modern comfortable environment combine especially well with the fine food and wines.

Open for a la carte dining during the winter ski season. Conferences, events & function catering are available all year round.
