Really nice hotel, family owned. After a small hiccup I was offered a beautiful room looking out toward the airport. Incredible bathroom with deep bath as well as walk in shower. Fantastic staff and very nice food. Breakfast was excellent also. Lounge area so inviting. Bar staff really of high standard. All staff appeared to enjoy their jobs. Enjoyed a... More

Lovely people, looked after us well during our short stay. We used the shuttle bus service twice, which worked very well. The evening meal was pleasant, with good service and reasonably priced for that type of hotel

I stayed here with work, i have stayed at better hotels. The staff were good but the room I stayed in was tired and dated, the breakfast was err ok at best. Would i stay here if i was paying no I will request somewhere else, there is nothing close to it, the restaurant has a limited expensive menu.

The staff at this hotel can't be praised higher, nothing was a problem to them and they thought nothing of going above and beyond. Special mention to the concierge who used to work at the Crown Casino in Sydney. I forgot to get his name but a quality friendly guy. As to the hotel itself I drew a short straw... More

The pool area is small but very nice. My room was a nice size. It had a small area that I certain was the mini bar but it look like... More

From the time we arrived we had amazing service. We were upgraded to a superior room. The rooms were great, no noise from the airport or the road, and super comfy beds. What more could you ask for. We stayed a total of 2 nights and would definitely stay there again without hesitation.

This was the perfect place after our 2 week vacation in the South Island. The amenities, pool, sauna, gym, bar and restaurant were the big reasons for the stay - AND this hotel is located VERY close to the airport, but you'd never know it when inside.

I picked this hotel because of its close proximity to the airport and free 24 hour shuttle. The staff was the NICEST in all of our stay throughout the south island. The hotel was very clean and our room was very spacious. Our room looked out to a small waterfall and the hotel itself had a very "tropical" feel. Laundry... More
