Last minute booking due my wife ending up in hospital while on vacation. Reception was very helpful, sympathetic and accommodating. Nothing was a problem. Room was very comfortable, modern and well appointed. Many thanks for being so thoughtful and helpful.

Not too bad but nothing exceptional. Good location, comfortable bed. Bathrooms really needs a refurbishment!! Nothing to say on the staff, they have done what they had to do but nothing more. Definitely to expensive for what it is, (you pay for the name of the hôtel)

All these categories and staff service very good. Food in the restaurant also very good.The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet even though 'on the road'.Altogether a very pleasant experience prior to leaving on a tour through the back country.

I booked our accommodation here based off Trip Advisor reviews and wasn't disappointed! We stayed for two nights and will be staying here again on our way back to the North Island in a few days time. It's welcoming, very clean, comfortable and spacious. The location is great with restaurants and the nearest grocery store just around the corner.

11 of us stayed here in October and were really impressed. Sure the place may not have changed much on the outside in 12 years but the rooms inside are spacious and have everything you need.

The room was very nice and welcoming. The bathroom was horrible hair on the bath and the towels had dirty marks over them. Old fashioned taps very hard to turn on and off. I would not pay that much for a dirty room. Other than that a very nice and welcoming people.

We stayed there for two nights. Room size was good, equipped with most facilities. The bathroom was a bit old-fashioned but clean. Reception was mostly friendly and helpful with the exception of one grumpy lady. All in all, a good place to use as a stop-over.
