Travelled the South Island and this was by far the most underwhelming accommodation. Agree with previous comments saying felt creepy. Didnt feel safe sleeping there. Only one other car in the parking lot and we were sure that was a staff car. Was looking forward to using the hot pools but was told it was too late. We arrived about...

Stayed for three nights during the ski season but felt that what was on offer and the service received didn't reflect the price we payed. For example, the hot pools were either closed for maintenance or not warm enough to use. Housekeeping was a hit and miss - teas/coffees not always refilled, same with toiletries, cleaning rags left in our...

We stayed in a family room - queen and two singles. It was simple and clean. Shower over bath. Pros are the price and parking was easy. They also let us late check in with ease. Cons - no free wifi, you had to keep getting these vouchers that are one per room. They didn't last long. Rooms are not...

I have stayed regularly during ski season both solo and with family. It's very price friendly it has a huge games lounge area, 2 open fires, ski tuning room and outside hot pools. The rooms are adequate if a little tired. Cleaning is a bit inconsistent. For a base to ski Mt Hutt and usual online booking rate it's good...

Stayed 1 night when in town on business. Price was good, room was clean but that's about it. Food below average, especially breakfast. The fact we were the only ones in the bar and restaurant should have been a clue. Real shame as the place has potential but feels as if no one cares !

This accommodation was a great location while we visited Mt Hutt for a few days of skiing. It is conveniently placed and within a short walk of the town centre. The only down side was having to ask at reception every time we wanted to order a drink through at the bar so that one of the staff could come...

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel while on a ski trip to Mt Hutt. Our room was a good size and there is a drying room for ski gear. Price for the room was good and booking was easy, the staff were pleasant and helpful.

We had a great stay.School holidays skiing can be stressful but it was nice relaxing after a hard days skiing in the hot tubs .The Austrian Chef is good but plenty of local choices but don't miss the Monday Chinese buffet .Breakfast could be a bit more inspiring but the omlettes were fab.

The staff were friendly, the place clean and comfortable BUT the best part of my stay was the chef, Thomas, who made me a delicious vegan meal and dessert every night of my week long stay. Delicious food, can recommend eating in after a day of skiing. I would definitely stay there again.
