People need to stop giving this place such a tough time, for $34 per night what do you expect? The rooms are a bit gruby but I've seen worse. The views of Mt. Cook from your bedside are fantastic and for a one night stay this place is perfectly fine.
The bar upstairs served decent food at a reasonable price and the portions were huge, so big I actually couldn't finish mine. We found the drinks to be extremely overpriced though - Crushed apple cider $10.50 per pint. Ouch! The service from the bar man was fantastic, the same can't be said for the people on reception though.
