“L'Hotel Boutique Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We booked our accommodation at L'Hotel Boutique Hotel in Akaroa via the local tourist office.
Our room was large, spotlessly clean, and had a large balcony overlooking the bay.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly - we could not have asked for more.

I can recommend the restaurant and bar which has a very good a la carte menu and offers good value

New Zealand South Island has to be one of the most beautiful places on the planet and Akaroa is one of many gems that bless the island.

“Appalling service...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Visited Akaroa today and whilst wandering around decided a spot of lunch at this place would be good. What a bad decision.
Walked in and the wait person (woman with blonde hair) told us we could take s seat anywhere. We sat down and waited, and waited and after 10 minutes (being generous as it would have been longer) with no one coming over, and we tried to get another staff members attention, we decided to go elsewhere.
Wouldn't bother going back...
Bully Hayes was a much better option and the service was 100% superior.

“Nice but average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

We were only offered a menu that showed burgers and pizzas. We chose a fish burger and the works burger with a kids menu choice of chicken and chips. The meals were nice for what they were but over priced ($28 for burgers and $12 for the kids menu). The service was average and we probably wouldn't go back.

“Pork Belly at its very best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

We both ordered Pork Belly and enjoyed a beautiful mulled wine as part of the meal deal. The service was excellent, attentive and friendly. The fire was super and much appreciated on a cold night. The belly of pork was superb. Beautifully presented, tender and delicious. We will highly recommend this as an eatery in Akaroa for our guests. The Guiness was much appreciated too.
