The lodge contained a small bar and a restaurant capable of serving at least two mid-sized tour groups simultaneously. Food and service were more than adequate. My room and meals were included in a multi-day travel package, so I can’t advise on prices.
Hotel Pueblo had its own rail station, about a mile and a half from Puente Ruinos, the starting point for the trip up the mountain to the ruins themselves. You could walk a quarter-mile to the nearby village and take a bus from there. If you weren’t staying at the hotel, the train from Cuzco connected directly at Puente Ruinos with shuttle buses to the top of the mountain.
Some hotel details may have changed since my visit to Machu Picchu, but I doubt the cordiality of the staff there will have.
