We stayed here for one night on our travels from Nelson to Christchurch and were quite disappointed by the accommodation the town had to offer. Although we did have a nice meal at the White Morph restaurant next door to the hotel.
The hotel was disappointing for the price of $240 per night for a so called luxury room which really wasn't in comparison to some of the other places we have stayed in the South Island.The basin was badly cracked in the bathroom and the shower recess was mouldy also shower door dragged on the floor. An initiative test was needed to find the soap hidden in the drawer.
After a very good look around the town this was probably one of the newer places to stay, but would suggest that the general standards of the operation could be lifted to align with their luxury tag.
