I stayed 1 night in Room 111 and while the decor & furnishings were a little dated, it was fine for an overnight - as long as you avert your eyes from the weird green velvet drapes & the mismatched patterns of coverings of chairs, walls, and bedspreads. The rather tired bathroom is in need of a renovation & had reversed hot & cold faucets (be careful!) Strange heater on the bedroom wall, no AC, good bed, coffee/tea service, empty mini-fridge.
On the bright side, the view from the balcony was amazing - green pines, golden poplars & snow-capped mountains. The bar gave a very generous pour of an excellent Stoneleigh sauvignon blanc, and the leg of lamb at the buffet was excellent.
If you're looking for a place to stay the night before or after visiting Mount Cook, this hotel is fine as long as you don't expect much.
