I was so bitterly disappointed with staying here. We stayed one night on the way to Milford Sound and we wished we had just driven the extra 2 hrs. It is decorated as a very dated 70s hunting lodge. The room was large but sparsely furnished. The bathroom only had a shower which soaked a large portion of the bathroom counter. Towels were thin and small. We were told that they would do laundry for no cost and it would be ready in the morning. We handed it over at 6.30pm we asked for it at 9am and were told it was just finishing drying, at 9.45am we were ready to leave and were just waiting for the laundry. In the end we were handed one load of damp laundry and one load of sopping wet laundry. If we had just been told they couldn't do it then it would have been fine as there was laundry facilities at Milford Sound. Guests do not appreciate being lied to.
There was a wine tasting party on which meant that normal dinner was not served and non guests were present. You either had the option of sitting on a large table with strangers or eating in your room or having a table on a balcony above everyone else. Dinner was only mediocre and mostly cold by the time we got it.
The laundry incident really annoyed me but the whole stay was not worth the money and was just disappointing. In the end management only charged us for the travel agent commission.
