Excellent hotel, good rooms, good size room, friendly helpful staff, good breakfast, great value and excellent location, free shuttle to the airport and free return ticket on local bus service - only 10 minutes to the city centre.

Close, convenient and shuttle is "on demand" so a hassle free way to get to airport on time. We stayed just one night. Room was great, inclusive of bath which two tired girls really appreciated. Little balcony so able to get fresh air. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was above what you would normally expect at airport... More

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
