We had two nights here which was lucky because a good portion of our first night was spent unable to get into our room because the lock had broken. The absolutely lovely girl on reception did her best and recommended we go on the Glow-worm tour, which we did and which was well worth it. She also offered us free...

We stayed here for two nights over Easter weekend. We were staying in the detached double level units to the rear of the property. We have travelled extensively and I'd have to say that this is one of the most tired looking facilities we've stayed out - don't get me wrong, we booked the cheapest place available. You could literally...

Our room was at the back of the hotel and was comfortable and well appointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the restaurant was good value for money and the italian head waiter was a delightful person .

First the bad: WiFi was practically non-existent and they do not have enough on-site parking to accommodate all of their guests. Some context: Its a very isolated town so the lack of WiFi is understandable. There's street parking near the hotel but you may end up walking a bit since the closer ones get taken quick. Overall, it was a...

On arrival we were upgraded to a Superior room from a Standard. The Superior room was kn the second floor with no lift and overlooked the car park/gardens. Not good when the coaches left at 7.30am. This was one of the few hotels that we booked included breakfast. We ate alone

Our room was on the first floor, unfortunately there is no lift available but the receptionist immediately offered to carry our luggage to the room. The room looked like it was lately renovated, it was clean and tidy. The duty manager was exceptionally friendly and helpful.

We booked here for a couple of nights while we did a Milford Sound trip. Our room was on the second floor directly above the reception area. The room was very noisy due to the arrival and departure of coach loads of mainly Asian tourists. This started at about 7am. As several other reviewers say, this hotel appears to be...

We stayed there 4 nights and it was very enjoyable. We had every day 8-10 hours trips so it was important to have a good sleep in a quiet, clean place. The room is big enough, the bed is comfortable, the hotel reception personnel absolutely wonderful. Usually we plan everything in advance but this time I needed every day their...

This was chosen by our tour operator. Easy to find and on the lake side with a 10 minute walk into town. We were given a king bedded room on the first floor (no lifts) facing the lake but the one storey restaurant is in front so we can only glimpse the lake in the distance but we can see...

Stayed at this place for one night en route to Milford Sound. Tried to access the internet in the evening in reception and it was unusable. Asked about this at reception and they said the town had poor internet connection and that many guests were using the wifi could be the problem. Although there were only two of us in...
