We ate here 2-3 times. It was the only place to get a meal in a town with the power cut off by a huge fire 30kms away. Staff were under pressure but were always helpful and cheerful. Food was great under the circumstances.

Thankyou for deciding to eat with us during very difficult times without power.We tried our best and really appreciate your comments.Power cuts really test the kitchen. Thankyou again.

I stayed here for two nights and it was an absolute treat, not even mentioning the beauty of Glenorchy itself. The room was tidy, food in the restaurant fantastic, and great winding down in the pub area after day activities with fellow travelers. The staff...More

Glenorchy can be a harsh environment any time of year. It is 80 minutes form Queenstown by a good road. The Gleorchy Hotel providses good meals and adequate accomodation. Accomodation however is apartan and somewhat expoensive.

Hi Paul, Thankyou for your comments.Backpacker rooms are pretty standard at 85.00 per night twin share in our area and more expensive in Queenstown. Of courrse it is peak time as well.Glenorchy also has additional freight costs being 120km return trip from Frankton.

I didn't want to post this review until I saw others'. Probably the dirtiest hostel i have stayed in NZ. The linens have caused my eczema to act up. Plus the unavailability of kitchen was never mentioned before booking. Would not recommend. Sorry.

The linens being sheets are new every day.We do not have a kitchen which you new when you booked and were informed on arrival.So pigmoon I suggest that you check your email we sent you about the kitchen.We would not recommend you either!
