I stayed here for a week in July whilist visiting family. Reception and cleaning staff were so helpful it made me feel like it was home away from home. The guest kitchen was well equip, clean and made life easy for dining on a budget. Though I did spoil myself at the Hotel Cafe for breakfast, the French Toast was... More

Having to juggle heavy suitcase and bags through 2 doors before even getting to reception didn't help with first impressions. This poor impression wasn't alleviated by the non-plussed reception staff who could be only barely pleasant. The biggest shock was the room. It was tiny and though sufficient for one night the bathroom was appalling. You had to shut the... More

This was nothing like the photos on the net. We had to bring our bags up 2 flights-the fire escape was closest. We didn't find out until the next day there was a kitchen, which was unclean. That was after spending $NZ 30 on lunch at a café & still had to buy dinner etc. No shampoo etc. I am... More

The hotel is well located and you have a shared kitchen and a laundry. They have also a carpark just behind the hotel. Our room was a little bit quaint but a good value i think for the area. Restaurants and shops are just next to the hotel.

The hotel itself does not have the newest fittings, the hotel has been around for a while, but we've had a very enjoyable time here. The hotel staff have been really, really nice, both the front desk guys and the guys coming around and servicing our rooms - they've made it a really comfortable stay for us. The rooms are... More

A great meal in front of the fire while it was snowing outside. It was white surrounding the lake and it was warm and cosy inside. As a group we ate, played pool, free wifi with great service. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Booked for one night but stayed two. Great location and efficient receptionist. Rooms small and outdated but comfortable and excellent value for money - $89 per night. Excellently equipped communal kitchen great for preparing own meals. Great hotel for those travelling on a budget.
