I had a lovely room with lots of space and good heating. Wifi was only available in the restaurant, which was rather inconvenient. The staff were quite friendly though they had no idea how to prepare an Irish coffee for this freezing guest. Food wasn't bad.

Large complex with a variety of rooms. Our was a "superior" room. Had a good view, was warm, spacious and well appointed. Decor a little dated but clean. Attached restaurant served an excellent dinner and breakfast. Pice: average and good value for the services we had.

This place is not luxurious but it is perfectly good. The room I had was a good size, the bed was comfortable, the shower was powerful. Wifi is was an extra, which is poor these days. The staff were friendly. This is not a luxurious hotel, but if you want a comfortable bed for the night it is more than... More

We got transferred form another hotel and wondered what might happen. But the staff were friendly and helpful. They pointed out that the hotel was hosting a car club and suggested other places to have a meal. The room was small but very quiet and we had a good nights sleep.

We have the rooms 91 and 92, which are at upstairs and facing the main road. The room is really big that make you feel relax . Its quiet even facing the road. The big balcony is another thumb up. The only upset thing is no Wi-Fi. You need to pay $7 for 24hours.

Relaxing weekend spent here. We were lucky enough to have won a competition which gave us a free night an meals here. The room we had was large and spacious, dated, but very comfortable and had everything we needed. We found the ladies at reception very friendly and helpful, we will go back and pay for our weekend next time!!!

I stayed in this hotel as part of a Just You Tour of New Zealand. It was dreadful. The bathroom was full of dead fly's, the bedding was filthy, very old quilt and badly stained pillows. Eventually got my bedding changes after taking the pillows to reception but it was well below the standard expected. Phone in room didn't work... More

I was stranded here due to snow, so had an unplanned visit. The staff were very accommodating and the room was clean and warm. They are probably long overdue an upgrade to their rooms, in particular replacing the computer screen sized TVs!! The food and service were excellent, it's a pretty nice place to be stuck!

We stopped here due to the very heavy rain. The hotel was very happy to give us a bed and breakfast deal. The room was very large, clean although old fashioned it was fine for the time and the money. We had dinner and breakfast, neither was gourmet but they were tasty and well presented. This is a good country... More

We were a group of 4 - 2 couples. Reception was a bit difficult to find......right round the back of the hotel, when it is situated right on a main road. Bathroom was very tired and in need of a revamp. Tiles coming off the wall in front of the shower, plastic towel rails cracked and fragile, shower door very... More
