Always an enjoyable stay. I like this hotel. Spacious, comfortable and well appointed. Great dining room and food always good. Very well placed. Staff very friendly. Best place to stay in town by far.

Stayed here for one night on our way back from Millford Sound. It was a great stop over to breakup the long drive. The hotel was busy and service at reception was so so, could have been better, Free Wifi was great... Room were large and spacious and comfortable.
The hotel is right in the middle of cafes and eating shope is location is a plus.

Beautiful spacious hotel with many elevators in various corners which aided transfer of our bags to the room in quick time. Corridors were wide enough to hold a dance. Rooms were spacious too and well appointed. We thought we had found the perfect haven. Unfortunately our room overlooked the rear car park where tour buses were parked overnight. The first morning they were started up early in the morning (between 6:15 and 6:45) and reversed with beeping warning sounds which seemed to go on forever. Unfortunately once they stopped reversing they kept the engines running possibly to warm up the inside. The following morning the same thing occurred but this time the hotel staff also counted the bags into the luggage compartment at full volume with no consideration for their guests. Reception staff seemed appologised but seemed unwilling to rectify the problem.

Room Tip: I would suggest if you get a room overlooking the rear car park you request a move.

Stayed overnight in a superior room as part of a Grand Pacific Coach tour. The hotel presents well, is close to the water and Esplanade with a beaut walkway, shops and cruises to the Glow Worm caves. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. We had dinner and breakfast and the meals were good with pleasant, helpful staff and this was the same in the reception area too where there is also free Wi-Fi. A great place for overnight but also extended as it is close to Milford Sound.

This hotel is very basic but the value is very good. We arrived without a reservation and the guy at the front desk made us the internet price for a standard room ($86) and gave us a deluxe twin room with two queen size beds as a free upgrade ! The bathroom was huge and very clean with a comfortable tub. There is free wifi but as everywhere in NZ it's slow and inefficient. Location is great.

I found this hotel wonderful. Position was great, staff friendly and room was huge. The bed was really comfortable. The one I slept in - I had a choice of two queen size beds in my room. I didn't find it dated at all but maybe I have no taste. One of the best hotels I stayed in while I was in nz.
