Unfortunately Ben Nevis Station is not suited to children and we have a minimum age requirement of 16 years old to join us on the property.
We offer 'Family Style' New Zealand Cuisine prepared by a personal chef. Due to our remoteness we will request that a preference list for each guest is provided to us at time of booking confirmation. We will design and send through a menu in advance to be approved and accepted prior to each stay. Additional provisions outside of this menu can be arranged and charged for a convenience fee. We will try our best to accommodate any last minute changes, however this may not always be possible due to the remote nature of the lodge.
