Hotel could do with a little updating but clean and tidy. Hotel provides all amenities including restaurant onsite. Did not eat at restaurant this time as we did something a little different. Great service and would stay again

WiFi is free and good in rooms. All that is required is an email . Only staying for one night but seems adequate for our needs. If a little dated. Rooms at clean and beds appear comfortable. Will post more after a nights sleep .

Hotel is old but clean. They are scarce in toiletries so bring your own. You can not use free wifi in your room only in the bar/restaurant area. They told us that it would be open 6:30 am and people were kept waiting out in the cold for 20 minutes. Some of us went to the reception to ask what...

This was a good quality hotel and the rooms were spacious and well appointed. The bed could do to be upgraded as it was a bit on the firm side. Meals in the restaurant were very good and plenty to choose from in the buffett. Nice cosy bar, staff friendly, enjoyed my stay here.

Our tour group stopped here for one night. Staff was helpful and friendly for our group. WiFi in rooms normally is not free but since our room 110 was above the office, we got good reception for free. The buffet dinner and breakfast were good.

We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We are working hard to provide free WiFi across the hotel and will have this in place by the end of this week. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your tour in New Zealand and come back soon.

Ten of us called in for dinner. The male waiter was good, the women were NOT. A smile and some enthusiasm would have been good. Found meals to be quite expensive for so so food and I am definitely not fussy. Lady started to clear our plates when some were still eating, that's just so rude so I asked her...
