We have stayed several times here as a stopping point on our way south and it is so consistent with its presentation, staff and restaurant. We always enjoy our stay. The rooms are quite big and a little dated but very clean and comfortable. The staff are so helpful and friendly so that even though its a rather large sprawling... More

We had a fantastic Mid Winter stay, room was warm and inviting with a great view. One of the best buffet breakfasts that I have had on the first morning. Staff very helpful in all departments. The resident cat was a lovely touch.

I really enjoyed my stay here. It's a little out of the way and usually people stay here when travelling to/from queenstown. It has a small and cosy reading room, and the area outside the breakfast area is nice for taking a short walk too. The town is also a walkable distance away, though there isn't much to see. We...

Hotel was clean and staff were nice. However, it was quite cold when we were there and the hallways were quite cold. We had quite a walk to the dining room and had to climb up and down stairs to get across to our rooms. TIP: there is a heater on the wall in the bathroom that activates with a... More

Stayed for a single night and the room was large and clean and the beds were OK. Bathroom was also good and reception staff were efficient and friendly. The cooked breakfast was pretty terrible and prepared with no love what so ever. The scrambled eggs were sloppy and lukewarm, the bacon cold and lifeless and the mushrooms were unappetising. The...

It is situated just off the main road making very convenient for an single overnight stop. Room was perfectly alright with all the facilities required and the staff were very helpful - getting us on the LoTR... More

I stayed here for one night and was given a family room as they weren't busy and accommodated my request for a ground floor location. The staff were very helpful and the hotel had a lovely fireplace in the bar and dining rooms which was very pleasant to sit by after a big day out. The decor in the room... More
