We drove up to Mt Cook and took the Motel under the Hermitage Hotel package for families. It included the Explorer Pass as well which enabled us to enter the movie and museum area for free. Continental Breakfast was also included. The motel is nothing to shout about but the views were magnificent! It snowed on our 2nd night there and it was sooooo beautiful with fresh snow in the surrounding areas. The service all around NZ is always friendly and excellent. We just loved our experience and time in Mt Cook and would stay there in a heartbeat again anytime.
My only recommendation is that you don't segment the breakfast to 'Continental' and 'Full Cooked Bfast'. Make it the same across the board. We were there during winter and we could count the tables with both hands. Saw a lot of food wasted as well.
