This property is more of a motor lodge than a hotel. Parking for our room was just outside the door and large groups of very noisy Chinese tourist would load and off load their buses, at all hours, just outside our window. While our room was very comfortable and nicely appointed, the service at this property was a bit lacking. We found the front desk clerk to be pretentious and rude. Just asking for change for the laundry he acted as if it was much too beneath his stature to grant such a request. Breakfast, not included in the price of the room, was fairly expensive and poorly prepared. Overall this was a very poor value.

The beds are comfortable but the rooms are dingy and aren't close to the pictures on the website. Our shower had hairs in it and was not adequately cleaned however they did have very good products and a little bad in case you wanted to take them with you.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It offers a comfy bed, great location, updated room, and competent service. I was initially concerned because we were booked in the Graham wing which seems to be the lowers end rooms, however, our room was very nice and seemed to have been recently updated. The best part was the bed. Breakfast was included in our rate and was probably one of the better buffet breakfasts we had while travelling in NZ-they even offer to make eggs to order if you don't want the scrambled on the buffet. We got a great lunch tip from the lady at the front desk when we first arrived- she was excellent.

Just completed a 10 day tour of the south Island. This hotel stood out for comfort and food. Very clean also. Enjoyed not having to step over a bath for a change. The beds had pillowtops and had one of the best nights sleep for the trip.
