Two day stay. Arrived tea time to a very busy commuter pub, and managed to squeeze my car into a full car park. Well received and shown up to an old fashioned room on the 1st floor facing the main road. Hot day and the room was very warm, no air conditioning. Went for a stroll up to the Botanical... More

we stayed for one night, Sat 21 march, in room 11. It was $109 for the night. The room was filthy, although the bedding and towels were clean. There was dust everywhere, cobwebs on the inside of all windows that had been there for weeks, the toilet was covered in mould, the sky box was precariously balanced on the tv... More

Our second visit to this hotel. Pretty well the same as the first, although this time we had no problems locating staff to check us in and out. We stayed in the main building rather than the annex. The room was spacious, comfortable and well maintained although a little more dated than our previous room and the bathroom suffered from... More

This was the cheapest hotel we stayed in during our three weeks in New Zealand. It may not suit everyone (there is no lift for example), but it has a lot to recommend it. It's an old inn, and it may look tired, but it has a lot of character. There's a large bar/restaurant which was busy early in the... More

Located in the lovely village like suberb on Tinakori Road this historic pub / hotel has not changed a great deal since we first stayed here many years before. It's rooms are basic but we found them to be clean. The breakfast arrangements were baffling but after we questioned it we got ours served in the lovely bar. It is... More

A historic hotel undergoing significant renovation. The new bar opened on our last night there - great pub meal. Rooms were old but clean and a good size. Great bathroom. Only complaint was the room was quite hot - could do with a larger fan or air conditioning. Complimentary breakfast of cereal and fruit. Great value. Walking distance into town... More

We had 2 rooms. Room #11 is at the back of the hotel away from the noise. It was a very large room with a large bathroom and jetted spa tub. Room #5 was not so great. A much smaller room, overlooking the street so it was noisy. Another reason for the noise was because of the connecting door to... More

We choose this hotel on an overnight trip to Wellington.It was one of the cheaper hotels we looked at so no grizzles about lack of mod cons.It has character and is rustic, but on our visit, room was clean and tidy and staff very helpful. Re breakfast there is a funky cafe over the road, opens at 9am where we... More

This Shepherds Arms Hotel was a very friendly hotel. A bit shabby in part and could due with an update in decor but for what we paid it was excellent value for money. We had a corner spa bath and queen sized bed in our larger than life bedroom, it was free of noise. Teaand coffee making facilities including a... More
