My wife and I needed a stop over point between Queenstown and Christchurch. This fit the bill perfecftly. The drive is beautiful. My check boxes are clean, comfortable bed, hot water, and welcoming host. Aoraki gets all checks. There is a super market and a number of resteraunts within walking disance. I had aksed Cory for some recommondations for some local beers before I walked over tot he store, and he was kind enough to go o his fridg and grab me a couple to sample. They have discount coupons for a couple of the resteraunts and will call to reserve a table. We were there in July, off season, and the town was a little "sleepy". There's probably more going on during the busy season. "Sleepy" was just fine for us. We drove up to Lake Pukaki and took the road along the lake uup to Mt. Cook. Highly recommend it.
