I am most surprised to hear the customers comments relateing to reception area as the guest was made fully aware on arrival that there had been a major leak experienced during the extreeme weather conditions that took place in the early part of the year. Fortunately no other part of the hotel was effected. Arrangements are in hand to completely... More

The location of the hotel could not have been better with such a short walk to and from town. We had a standard room which had two big... More

Its rather a pity this was not mentioned in his review. With regard to his main point, the guest states there is no handrail alongside the steps up to the... More

Having recently enjoyed a weeks stay at the Hudson hotel, we found the owner to be extremely friendly and welcoming. It is so central to the harbour, bars and restaurants that we didn't need to use the car at all. The only problem was the fact that we thought we had booked a double room with balcony but apparently hadn't.... More

Have just spent two nights in a superior room. Great room with plenty of space, and very clean. Only 2 minutes walk to the pubs and restaurants. And the cooked breakfast is great. If we ever come back, we will head straight to the Hudson. C & M...NZ.
