It was our great pleasure to stay in this wonderful hotel. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The free airport shuttle is a fabulous service and the young man who collected us was delightful. Our room was very spacious, (family room, 2 queen sized beds), and very well planned out, and nice and quiet. The pool and spa are fantastic.... More

This is our hotel every time we travel to the south island. Excellent staff, beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious and well maintained, excellent airport shuttle service, the restaurant/bar has a very warm and inviting atmosphere and the undercover pool area is great.

I stayed for one night during a recent business trip to the South Island. Staff cannot be more helpful- even recommending a fantastic restaurant off the beaten track for Sunday lunch. Dinner & breakfast were delicious with a friendly atmosphere in the bar restaurant. Room comfortable & spacious.

I have not stayed here for a while due to mostly staying close to the city centre. But it is still the same good hotel that it always has been. Customer service is fantastic, beds are super comfortable, food is lovely and nice gardens

As someone who is very fussy especially when travelling with two kids (8 & 12, and a pregnant wife), we decided to spend our last day in NZ here after a long road trip and after looking at two other nearby hotels first. I was made to feel so welcome from the moment we arrived, We were offered beautiful spacious... More

I spent the day here in June for some professional development for work. It was the perfect venue for that. As soon as I arrived the staff were courteous, professional and helpful. I purchased a coffee from the restaurant first and this was of a great standard and delivered to me promptly, in spite of the number of customers who... More

A very large and spacious room with what looks like a super king bed is just what you need when you arrive around midnight. Very clean, extremely comfortable and a large selection of teas and plunger coffee. I do find that the heating is a bit too hot and I always need to turn it down, not that it's a... More
