We booked this accommodation from the AA Guide in which McGuires says they have deluxe accommodation in a wilderness setting. There was nothing deluxe about the room we had - mould all around the sealant in the shower, very tired and dated. The grounds were full of weeds and the restaurant and bar were not open in the evening. In fact the lounge was locked from about 8pm so we couldn't even go and sit in a comfortable seat and watch TV away from our room where the TV was almost at ceiling height and was almost impossible to watch and the only seats in the room were very old kitchen chairs. I would say this is is on a par with real budget accommodation or a backpackers.
Never stay here - in fact there is no reason to stop in Haast at all. A very grim place.
