Just a wonderful place to spend a relaxing weekend. Very laid back atmosphere and beautiful facilities at Backpackers rates. Five minute walk to an array of Department of Conservation trails that take you to a lovely lagoon and wicked views of Mount Cook. The people who run the Hotel are obliging and we felt as though they were incredibly welcoming. I even forgot something there and the owner was kind enough to send it on!
