The staff were friendly and helpful. The reception area and public spaces were welcoming, clean and spacious. Our room was light, airy, clean and with good views. The beds were really comfy. The large restaurant had wide meal choices..

Was cheaper than other hotels in the area... so Quite dated but I guess you get what you pay for. No information in the room about the hotel and restaurant so ate elsewhere. Would benefit from a spruce up and at least some information about the hotel. Staff were friendly. Can imagine this place as a hostel in the future.

Lovely, if a bit old fashioned in decor, clean hotel with lovely staff. Both Shona the receptionist and the waiting staff in the restaurant were fantastic. On our second day I had a fall and needs medical attention, Shona was great she made sure I got the care I needed and made sure dinner was still available on our return... More

Spacious clean room with clean bathroom. Space heater was a helpful addition. Accommodating staff! The guest laundry was broken and they did our laundry free of charge at the hotel facility. Loved our stay.

This is a old worn out hotel, our room had only warm water, the beds were so old and uncomfortable, and the meal was a disappointment. The grounds were poor, with a ruins of what was a tennis court. The toliets did not flush properly. Staff were great. But our advice is keep going.

First room appalling, very lovely girl at desk showed us another one which was a lot better with an outlook. However, the bed had to be remade after we found long black hairs on the pillow and inside the sheets. Just saying! I'm a nurse and didn't mind making the bed with fresh sheets. We liked the self service at... More

There are some positives for staying here which are: it is quiet, clean and very comfortable beds. However we found the premises to be lacking in any personality. The rooms themselves were very old fashioned with no personal touches. There was no photos, art or pictures on any of the walls in the rooms or hallways. There was no soft... More

This place was booked for us by a travel company as a stop over to break the journey from Dunedin to Christchurch on our self drive holiday around New Zealand. It looks like it was built in the 70's and not touched since. Not sure why we have been sent here. Can't see much to do. Luckily it's just for... More

The hotel is new and the room is clean. The staff was nice and friendly. We had had a good time there until the following morning before we checked out when a female staff scolded us because we moved our and parked it in front of our room. I sincerely had no idea that this is not appropriate or not... More

I really enjoy staying here: the setting is extraordinarily beautiful, the staff are super-friendly, the restaurant is good and the hotel is perfectly located for the hot tubs which are great too. The rooms with view of the airfield and mountains are the best - you can watch the gliders and the sunset. Yeah the rooms are still 1970s-style, but... More
