From the reviews I read online I expected more from this hotel, especially considering the room rate. Its actually a motel and there is nothing there except the front desk and the individual rooms. The restaurant on site was never open and we could not get dinner or breakfast there and had to drive into town to get anything to... More

We were not impressed with this room. It appears clean, but the sheets did not have that fresh feel to them ... I hope they had been changed. We sat on the bed to watch TV and found the electric blanket was on ... not very safe. Makes you wonder what else was missed with the cleaning. We also found... More

The Village Inn is an old fashioned motel that is very tired looking inside. Some lights in the room did not work very well and you could here people in the room next door, but the room did what it was supposed to. Breakfast was enjoyable. Overall the room was okay for an overnight stay.

First impressions were that this was a very unusual place with the exterior decor of the rooms in the form of a colonial New Zealand town/village. The room was functional and clean with a good-sized comfortable bed and cooking facilities if required. The staff were exceptionally friendly and couldn't do enough for us during our stay. Special mention for Daniel... More

Located about 2 minutes walk from main street. Well appointed rooms well serviced. Good value at about one forty five per night for a couple. The only negative was that they charge for Internet access. Street appearance is not fancy but rooms are nice inside.

After coming from incredible accommodations in Queenstown, this place lack luster. No AC, no WIFI, dated and tired room/bath, no fans for the room to circulate the air. I don't know - everything is booked at this time of the year in NZ, so hard to say what the other places look like. This is ok but sure not great!

It has it's own kitchinette with electric hob, microwave, sink etc. TV but not many channel to choose from but this is the case across New Zealand. Parking outside your front door. Very quiet Comfy bed No meal option when we were there. 5 min walk to the lake.... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Village Inn - room was quiet, clean and spacious with comfortable bed and easy chairs. The room also had a useful kitchenette and an office desk. Pleasant staff. Location was quiet but only a 4 minute walk to the lake or through the park to the main street. We will definitely return next time we... More

Cute place with themed buildings. Front desk staff helpful and have gone extra mile to help resolve a booking/payment issue with the booking company. Clean and spacious rooms with a comfortable bed and large bathroom. Laundry washer and dryer very old. Also there was a queue to make use of the one machine. When the dryer didn't dry our clothes...

Hi thanks so much for the kind comments regarding the Village Inn. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and that your room was comfortable.

Pros: friendly staff, clean room, reasonably spacious, parking, Walking distance to the lake and amenities.
