Hotel had been boked via travel agent so we were not sure what to expect but it was a very plesant surprise. We were welcomed by Steve the manager who was very friendly and also comfimed our glacier walk with the guiding company.
The beds in this hotel are perhaps the most comfortable I have ever stayed in. We had 3 rooms and each was slightly different but each was lovely.
Dinner in the restaurant was excellent - the menu is not huge but everything on it is cooked to perfection. Breakfast was also very good and the complimentary glass of wine in the lounge before dinner is a lovely touch and a great way to meet other travellers.
Definitely the best hotel we stayed in the South Island
