Con:nothing Pro:Nice service, good environment and convenient location. The staff were friendly and kindhearted, we didn't expect to get free wifi, but they provided us 500MB data when we checked in, and it was enought for us 5 people. I'd recommend my friend to be there in the future

The room was good clean and reasonable. Very close to everything with easy access once sorted out where our room was. We would stay here again. It has two resturants on site and received a free drink when we had a meal.

An enjoyable stay. Location is excellent, and I found the front office staff always helpful and friendly. Very good breakfasts....and not overly priced. Only negative was the tiny bathrooms. In fact microscopic would better describe them!. You get what you pay for though...and at $89 a night still good value. A shame no Sky Sports in rooms.

Wasn't too happy to discover our room had an adjoining room door with a flimsy looking lock, an internal latch would have been a thoughtful addition as would some element of sound proofing. Hearing a telly, radio, and worse a conversation from next door was not ideal. On the upside the room was clean, well appointed, and affordable.

We ended up at Wanaka Hotel after booking another hotel through an online company when in fact the room was not available.

We appreciated very much the short stay there. The small family operated hotel is very clean and everything is in order. The Japanese host family are very friendly in giving any help and tips for trip.
