Having spent three weekend nights at this location we were very pleased with the accommodation throughout the meals being offered and the service provided by the staff. The hotel was full each day due to a local air show occurring, however, the service throughout remained tops. While a vehicle for travel is ideal taxis are available and there is also... More

I stay at the Solway every couple of months for work. The hotel is always clean and well kept. They have an indoor and outdoor pool, great kids outdoor play area and a gym and spa.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom room here on our way to Wellington, it was comfortable, bathroom very small however but not a deal breaker. The kids loved both the outdoor and indoor pools. I used the laundry facilities which was great, they had a king bed which is a must. All in all a great stop over hotel.
