Ok we read the reviews all good & bad & decided to take a chance.
I have to say we were pleasantly surprised. Its a bit pricey & yes this is an old heritage building, in the middle of know where & it isn't 4 star quality but we weren't looking for that. It is a good 3 star hotel & they don't profess to be anything else.
There was a big bus tour in & it was very busy, but the staff still found the time to make us feel welcome.
The room was clean & tidy not big, but big enough, we had dinner in the wild goat Cafe at the hotel & it was very nice. The venison pie I had was the best meal I had on our trip to date, you have to try it if you are here.
Don't go here with high expectations, expecting the comforts of city hotels because you are not in the city, you are basically in the outback of NZ. We enjoyed our 2 night stay at this hotel, it has all you need, don't get me started on our stay in Wanaka, thats another review all together which isn't good..
For what its worth you should try this hotel I think you will like it & the Glacier is out of this world.
