First off I have to commend the staff, they were brilliant but we were disappointed with our meal considering it had been recommended as the best place to eat in Queenstown. My fish was cooked well, but the marmalade chilli sauce was a bit ho hum. My husband ordered a chicken curry which was totally overcooked and dry. When speaking...

This place is a budget hotel and we generally got what we expected - cramped, tired, low quality. But we also got paper thin walls and chaotic parking. The first night, the party in the room next to us really did party - chattering loudly late into the night. We had to be up early to catch a Gordon River...

Everything was clean and bed comfortable. Staff at Reception and restaurant were very friendly. Meals were ok but nothing outstanding. But over all a good place...

The room is exactly what is expected in this pride bracket. Comfortable bed, enough space , good facilities and free, fast wifi. The room even had two heaters for those who feel the cold. We were more than happy with the room. The owner went out of his way to help my husband make contact with another motel to retrieve...

Stayed here with a couple on new years 2016. Room was clean, spacious and beds comfortable. Staff very friendly. Walking distance to the town centre. No fly screens on the small upper windows unable to close and did have a problem with mosquitoes getting in. Hotel a little run down. Queenstown very quiet. Nothing open after 8pm. Fridge very small....

Hi Elaine, thanks for your review and I truly am disappointed that the room cleanliness didn't meet your expectations. From your feedback I don't know when you stayed, what room you stayed in so it is very difficult for me to drill down on the specifics of what has occurred ... but I have workshopped your comments with my housekeeping...
