This was a special find. On first glance it is an 80's hotel that probably could do with a bit of an update. After staying there however, this is actually a part of its charm. It is a little dated and rustic. No downsides really. Spotlessly clean, good wifi and facilities, nice and warm. Biggest plus was staff that appeared... More

Thank you for your response. I will pass your comments onto the staff, as we believe that it is the staff that make the place. The Hotel is due for a significant upgrade of the front entrance, bar and café starting on the 18th of July 2016. Appreciate your kind words More

This has become our go to breakfast stop in Cromwell. Good food and reasonably priced. Oh and it was warm inside. Nice friendly service too. I had the Roasted Mushrooms which was very good. As well you got coffees and toast and spreads for about $17.00

We stayed here for 2 nights with other couples. It has comfortable spacious rooms with sunny balconies with great views across the local vineyards perfect place to enjoy that evening wine. There is a comfortable bar and restaurant on site that does a great pizza.

Had a meal at the restaurant. Good service. My meal was very nice, however the burger meals were described as average at this restaurant. Quite a busy night. No specials board as stated on the menu. Nice setting.

We booked a premier suite room at the last minute as we were driving late in the evening and had decided not to drive all the way through to Queenstown. We arrived at 10.30pm and the night duty manager signed us in and gave us directions to our room (he was prompt and friendly). Very reasonable rate of only $130NZD... More

Thanks for your review. Always nice to see staff have been friendly and I will pass you comments on. Unfortunately the basin is a design trend from the early 90s. I will be getting the bathroom hooks sorted as we like to keep on top of the small jobs. Appreciate you feedback More

Spent 2 nights here with the Goldwing Club. Comfortable beds and a good shower. We all enjoyed our stay and the weather played ball as well. We all had dinner in the restaurant both nights and no complaints there, George and Tracy had everything under control, food was good with ample choices for all tastes and quantities.
