You'd have to say that the hosts were very really warm and hospitable since there take-over. The service was A1, it really needs a bruce up as the place is a little retro in feel especially the rooms which were only adequate. They were clean though and well stocked. However this was surpassed with the service and thier sheer enthusiam.... More

This is a low budget hotel. Rooms were clean but furniture old and worn looking. Bedroom was cold even with storage heater on full blast and lounge area was cold unless you stood right next to the log fire Food was alright but nothing special.

This is a real solid hotel with great service. New owners are excellent, flexible and always helpful/smiling. They are most informative, nothing was too hard. Rooms are very good, especially after a day snow boarding.

My husband and I recently stayed at Methven Resort with our 3 month old bub. We received a warm welcome upon arrival and were very pleased with our room. The staff went above and beyond to ensure our family was comfortable. We were also very pleased with the meals we had at Sojourn Restaurant. I would also like to thank... More

We happily stumbled across the above Hotel on our tour of the South Island of New Zealand and have to say that we found the welcome and treatment to be excellent. The family atmosphere we found and the inclusive nature of all involved was indeed very welcome and left a good impression which set us up nicely for the remainder... More

We stayed with our two children over Easter and found the hotel very clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and good to our children, and there are nice spaces if one was here with a large group or for a conference. The pool is 25m and very nice (although cold of course this time of year) and there are... More

Great service from all staff, great food, very clean and tidy. A wonderful place to have a conference or wedding/meeting with the three levels, rooms, swimming pool and quality of service. The location also helps and I'd have no hesitation going back.

A lovely country resort in an out of the way location in rural New Zealand. Good, friendly, family run business. Clean and comfortable accommodation, great dining. Grand piano in lounge a bonus. No doubt would get busy in ski season but was quiet when we stayed there. It was a surprise having this good accommodation in the small town. Would... More

First of all I should say that I know the owners are relatively new so I am sure they will be aware of improvements that need to be made to the dated decorations and furnishings in the bedrooms. Equally, the large public areas look a bit sad when there are only a few people staying in the hotel. Staying as... More

The pool is exceptional and the room euro-efficiently designed and clean. However, the fan in the bathroom (or heating system?) allowed you to hear conversations of the neighboring guests as if they were sharing your room. Shutting the bathroom door is a must. The managers must be financially struggling because they would turn down the hall lights, turn off the... More
