This is a big hotel (by local standards) and, whilst a bit dated in its decor, is comfortable and welcoming. The staff were all friendly, especially the barman David, and the bedroom was large, clean and comfortable. The restaurant was closed due to a change in management but the burger I had in the bar was fine, if on the... More

I've been here quite a few times and am very happy with the staff and accommodation. The bar food is very good (avoid the fish) and service is excellent. The rooms are very comfortable and always clean. The area is very quiet and well away from the main highway. There are good options for dining with the main restaurant or... More

This hotel is situated around 80 Klms out of Christchurch but is a superb hotel in every way. Having travelled around NZ for several weeks this hotel was a standout with its meticulous presentation and ambience. Wonderful staff, food and lounge area surrounded by lawns and gardens. A pleasure to stay there.

The beds were large and comfortable and the mattress, in particular, seemed to be well-padded. The TV was set up on the wall while the remote was very handy to bed and we could watch the early morning news on the Breakfast show with a cuppa in bed which was quite nice in winter. Staff were friendly in the restaurant... More

The staff is welcoming. The shuttle to town was made available, which was very nice when no car was available. The rooms are large, clean and neat. The hotel seems to be redone. The bar is central, not very much of an ambiance, but plenty of room. The food and service in the restaurant were very good. The servers were... More
