This year (2017) we have introduced a new menu for our guests. This includes alternated cooked and continental breakfasts. We have 20 standard evening meal plans which are designed to be exciting and easy to prepare. Vegetarian Dishes come as standard with every meal.
Some of our evening menus are: Moroccan chicken or chickpea curry on rice with steamed broccoli and carrots Roast pork or frittata with potatoes and roast vegetables Mexican mince or black bean nachos with sour cream and coleslaw
The upstairs lounge and dining area has plenty of room and stunning views of the mountain, with a door on to the balcony/sun deck.
The lodge uses solar panels and batteries via an inverter to provide the electricity and hot water, and cooking is by gas. The solar system is supplemented by diesel generator to ensure that the batteries are at full charge ready to deliver electricity to the lodge. Fireplaces provide heating both downstairs and upstairs. It’s possible to use the lodge all year round as there is electricity available from the inverter as the solar panels generate electricity all year round.
The four bunk rooms come in a variety of sizes, with roomy single and double bunks available, and drawers to stow gear. The lodge has a drying room, two full bathrooms including two hot showers, and four flash flush toilets.
Since 2012 we have been trialling a “Members’ Room”. TASC Members have preferential booking access to this room to meet their need for accommodation for small groups or families at reasonably short notice. While we can’t guarantee access to this room, we hope it will ease access to the lodge for members.
The members’ room is currently the Te Heu Heu room in the upper lodge and has three double bunks. See membership page for more information.
