We booked the basic room for a one night stop during a 10 day driving trip of the south island. We had read the reviews and were prepared for ok accommodation. And that's what it was. It was a very dated room, but the basics were there. Bed, bathroom, TV and fridge. For one night that was all we needed... More

Just a minute away from the lake and surrounded by shops and dining places. Decor of the room is outdated but you should be spending more time outside than in the room. There is a kitchen available right at the end of the rooms. No airconditioning in the room, only a central heater. However, it is still value for money... More

Beds and pillows are too soft for us. It would have been better if there are lifts or if we could drive up closer to the rooms. We had... More

The positive for this hotel is the location which is excellent with great views over the lake. On the negative side the décor is very dated. I can't remember the last time I stayed somewhere with carpet half way up the walls in the corridors and in the bedroom. The wash hand basin was cracked and there was nowhere to... More

I was very impressed with the room. The hotel and room was clean and tidy. The room gave me a great view of the lake and garden. The staff were very helpful. I was impressed with the immaculate garden. It was a pleasure to wonder around the grounds. I would definitely stay again and will recommend it to my friends.... More

We had booked this hotel as a stop through place on the way to Franz Joseph. Our plans changed due to a cancellation of a trip so we decided to head on sooner. We didn't expect a refund due to us informing them last minute but the manager Jo Bruce was very kind and gave this back to us. We... More
