We stayed here for two nights in mid January. This place looked okay from the outside, manager was pleasant - yes the key was in the door upon arrival.
The room - okay I've stayed and grew up in this kind of run down accommodation - a little tlc is all that is needed. Bedspreads at least 10yrs old, upon inspection found a Flea looking insect in our bed -nice touch. Musty smell - stays as you can't open the windows - only option is to leave the room door open - no thanks. No fans but an air cooler, my toddler kept saying how hot it was. Bathroom - shower head kept falling down and it took forever to get the right temperature. Light bulb went out on the 2nd night. Also desk is covered in carpet - no joke. My husband thought there was a second level as he kept hearing someone walking the roof. 2nd night - happened again - he concluded that the place must be haunted. Restaurant menu looked very good apart from the price - over priced considering it is in queenstown.
Locals seemed odd - a place you wouldn't want to stay in for a considerable amount of time.
