We booked into this hotel as we visited Omarama for our wedding anniversary but we were really disappointed that such an old facility is still being sold in todays time. OK - the hotel has been around a long time and the outside looks nice but the rooms! OMG - talk about old fashioned. And the beds are sooooooo soft... More

The room was grubby - in need of decoration. It was reasonably large - with a non digital T.V. - fridge and a handbasin set outside the bathroom. The bed was a little soft and the shower was quaint but functional and provided a good strength. Despite being part of a coach party their restaurant decided to only offer a... More

We stayed here for just one night on the way to Aoraki Mount cook. The hot pools are just across the road but since we didn't have bookings it was unavailable for the same day. Huge space for parking, everything nearby, convenient location. They have a game room very close to the reception. We played pool almost until midnight with... More

Interior is very old and dated, slightly whiffy but tolerable!, but rooms are spacious. Young guy at reception was helpful and friendly. OK value, but there is newer accommodation in town for similar price that is significantly superior. There is also worse accommodation that is more expensive! It's a small town so in busy periods if my preferred accommodation is... More

Wasn't expecting much given the location, but a hot shower would be nice! The bathtub has one of those old separate cold and water tap, which is not the issue. The problem was when I switched to shower mode, there was no hot water! In addition, the air con, which didn't work, was making weird noises throughout the night.

It may be that we were in town the night of the rodeo...but...we paid $250 for a small room with a small double bed, a noisy fridge and a barely adequate shower. We were told that this was a standard rate for this time of the year and that in the off season it is half the price. Even at... More

The Country Time Hotel is old, but not in a charming way! As soon as we walked in I thought hmmm...not good. The first room we saw was on the second floor and much as we had asked for a queen was only a double and a twin...so we switched...but not before noticing that the room smelt musty and the... More

Our room is very tired, smelly and not very clean. The beds are saggy and old. I've had to move into the single bed because the double bed is so dipped in the middle my husband and I just kept rolling into the middle. It is very noisy (12 pm) slamming doors and other guests outside under our window talking... More

We were on a 10 day trip celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. The location, the food, the staff, were superb. Yes, it is tired and in need of refurbishment, but it was absolutely clean, tidy & spacious. The meals (breakfasts & dinners) were excellent. The staff were sooooo helpful and friendly. We had a lot to do with Shona &... More
