Stayed here with my husband and my parents, booked the brand new lodge rooms out the back of the hotel. Fantastic facilities, own bathroom (compared to shared facilities in hotel) and ample kitchenette. Nice warm and roomy, comfortable bed. These rooms are one month old...More
A wonderful stop off place along the Forgotten Highway. Very friendly and lovely coffee. A very pleasant little interlude looking around this quaint little place so reminiscent of small towns in days gone by.

We thought th hotel was great -good atmosphere of a typical old country NZ pub; but would not stay again because we felt the accommodation was overpriced. Cost was $150 for the night ($75pp) but that was with shared bathroom facilities and nothing in room except the beds basically - so a bit steep esp when u make comparisons. Also it's pretty noisy unless u get a room right at th bac. I would stop in again for a drink or lunch
