Would not stay here again Very old and not looked after. Had no hot water and when asked about it, the staff said "oh yeah it get's a bit finicky when it is cold". The temp was 15 degrees. The hand basin was in the room and not the bathroom. The toilet was from the 60's. Looks nice from the...

It was our first time in NZ, thanks we visited more places than this, otherwise I would feel much different about this wonderful country. The hotel was totally outdated, the room quite shabby, and dirty, everything in there was, we couldn't lock our rooms door, very uncomfortable bed for two... There was mould everywhere in the toilet, hair on the...

The place is dated on the inside and does need some investment. Re-carpeting and a paint job would make a huge difference. But, it has character, it's not a grey coloured box like so many are. But it is what it is and you can't get better for the price. I judge accommodation on quality of sleep, cleanliness and staff....

We stayed here for one night on our way from Christchurch to Te Anau. Ideally we would have liked to stay at lake Tekapo or Twizel, but nothing was available there. It's a very old hotel and staff is trying to maintain it, but it surely needs an upgrade. It has restaurant offerring breakfast and dinner buffet, but better skipped...

Once was grand but now needs a compete refurb! The breakfast had no gluten free options aside from the fruit but we did appreciate the cook offering to make some poached eggs. Service friendly enough but for a place that is in a very unique location it could do with stepping out of the 1980's, either re-service or tidy up...

Beds are sinking - when you sleep 2 in a double you fall on each other. + the room was right above generator (?) system on left side of entrance. Ask to avoid these room on that side if you want to enjoy the birds singing noise and not a constant generator noise.

Everything about this hotel looked tired and dated ---the façade, the reception area, the rooms, the carpet, the curtains, the bed, the washbasin…. The room we got was quite spacious though with a double bed and a single bed. Even so, the facilities and furniture don’t look inviting. The wash basin in the room, which was stained and therefore a...

Room and decor was outdated, but clean. It was a Large room so I would have expected more than just a double bed. This made for a poor nights sleep. My husband and I are used to a king. No air conditioner but the windows opened. The food was average for the price. If you book through an App and...

The motel itself is pretty outdated but we only stayed for one night and it had everything we needed. The buffet for breaky and dinner was pretty good and the view from the dining room is great. The bed was also very soft but fine for us. We weren't expecting much and we didn't get anything luxurious but it worked...
