The Hermitage Hotel

Nestled in the beautiful Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park, The Hermitage Hotel is the perfect base for your next adventure.     

Recognised as part of the Te Wahipounamu Unesco World Heritage Area, the national park is a breathtaking environment of glaciers, terminal lakes, turbulent rivers, and Australasia’s tallest peak, the mighty Aoraki/Mt Cook, soaring above at 3724 metres.     

The Hermitage Hotel has long been synonymous with the Kiwi spirit of adventure. Since first being built in 1884, the hotel has stood as a perfect escape destination for generations of Kiwis and international travellers, spellbound by the Mount Cook region.     

From guided walks through the valley’s vast terrain to the glacial lake experience, where you get up close and personal to icebergs via the Glacier Explorer boats, The Hermitage is more than just a hotel. It is a destination.     

The newly renovated Snowline Bar is ideal for a well-earned beverage and a broad selection of bar snacks, while you can also experience the ultimate buffet experience at the Alpine Restaurant as you take in the stunning views.     

If a slower and more indulgent evening is planned, a reservation at the Panorama Room will delight with a ` la carte menus carefully designed to take you on a culinary journey.
