As a solo travelling backpacker, sometimes I liked to upgrade a little to enjoy some creature comforts without going overboard. The budget rooms they had on offer
for $90 per night suited me perfectly - the decor in these is older but the room was
clean, it came with everything you would get in a newer room, you just have to be
less fussy about the age of things. This place was about a 10 minute walk from town,
no hills to contend with, and you have easy access to the lakefront which is across
the road and down a small hill out of view from the main road heading out of town.
Service great, the budget accommodation also has access to a small lounge room, and a kitchen if you want to cook your own food (tea/coffee making facilities in the room itself). I was very happy with this room but the thing i absolute LOVED about this accommdation was the utterly spectacular views! Waking up in the morning and pulling the curtain across so i could stare at the beautiful mountains of The Fiordland National Park was really special - seriously, a neighbour and I agreed, that at $90 per night
we had a bargain!
