One the best stays we had on our trip around NZ. We stayed in the Royal Suite but we looked into other rooms and the overall presentation was excellent. Location is also very good with reserved parking close by.

Charming hotel with a mix of Art Deco mingled with modern amenities. Excellent location with waterfront directly opposite. Parking a short walk away. Plenty of vineyards in the area to visit and restaurants within walking distance.

Hello "pschub_799410" It is surprising how many guests enjoy our Royal connections. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip did stay here on their Coronation Tour; her father (before he became King George) and even an Uncle were guests at various times. Thanks for posting you review. More

A welcoming 20s period style hotel with a lively yet calm atmosphere. Beautiful furnishings and decor. Central to all town events. Friendly helpful staff. No car parking facilities but reserved numbered places in a nearby council car park. Parking charges apply and it may be cheaper to use council places instead of the hotel. Check it out.

What a place! from the moment you walk up the steps to the hotel you are whisked back in time to the days of art décor and the 1930's. The attention to detail is second to none, the apartment/room was decorated with antiques and art décor right down to the claw footed bath. I would certainly recommend this hotel to... More

A well located hotel with its excellent bar and restaurant, The Emporium below. We stayed in a double room with access to the communal balcony overlooking the sea.On a warm sunny day this would be the perfect spot to pass some time sipping the local wine, reading a book or just gazing out to sea.
