Caters for coach parties. Evening meal reasonable but eat before the coach party in the evening as advised by reception staff. Free WiFi connection in the public areas but signal not very reliable. Indifferent buffet breakfast after .the coach party had eaten.

Argh. A step back in time to the 60's or 70's. Positive... Clean room Negative... Very dated room furniture, bed spread was threadbare, the bathroom was so old. The whole room needed demo and a make over. Light fittings hadn't been cleaned since installation, mouldy in the bathroom, crappy shower curtain. Very basic toiletries provided Either stop before or push... More

A comfortable establishment in a small township, friendly staff, meal was good old home cooking type meals, the stay was all very adequate, but nothing outstanding, and all in need of a bit of refreshing the interior, however works well as is.

We were right beside the stairs, as soon as anyone entered or left the building through that door there was a massive bang. Since we were downstairs, the water waste from the bathroom upstairs used a pipe in the bathroom, everytime the upstairs room flushed there toliet, you knew. Had to try close the bathroom door to reduce the noise.... More

Great Location in Omarama, walking distance to hot tubs. Rooms could be refubished and beds replaced - soft and uncomfortable, no air conditioning in the rooms on the wing facing the afternoon sun, so room was very hot. Food at the local Tavern was excellent as was the staff.

After a long drive we were looking for a comfortable bed. Didn't happen. The mattress was unfit to sleep on and the doona was too small for the double bed. When informed the staff offered a free fully cooked breakfast as a consolation. The general layout and proximity to Mount Cook suited our travel plans.

price was reasonable so expectations weren't that high but although the room was clean the general shabbiness was off putting. Main light bulb had been removed so room was too dim to be able to read after dark. A nice long soak in the bathtub was not possible as the plug had been removed. We were too late for dinner...

The hotel is pretty outdated, almost felt like The Shining, but it is in a great location, with beautiful views off the back patio. There is a restaurant and bar on the property. The rooms were large but everything is really old...carpeted bathrooms! But the incredibly friendly staff make it a really enjoyable stay!!
