We booked Pipers Lodge as we we decided two days prior to have an Easter Weekend MTB adventure. We knew it would be "no frills" but we were pleasantly surprised with value for money. Staff were lovely on check in, and check out. Showers were great after a long day outside - with great pressure and warmth. Great to have towels provided also. The bed was comfy, and the linen was just right for the temperature we were having that weekend. Heaters in the room work well also, and great to have a basin in room so you don't need to experience cold too early in the morning to brush your teeth. Bar was also great (which always helps!)

The place was nice enough: clean and a nice fire place in the lounge. - no water fountain and can’t fill up your bottle in the bathroom. If you want to drink water you need to go to the bar. - they do not provide towels so if you want to have a shower bring your own.

Great base camp
A great little ski lodge in the middle of National Park village, only 20mins from the mountains. A great place to set up base camp, big fire, bar, food, heating- everything you need. We'll be back.
