The hotel is within walking distance to shops and helicopter pad.
Carpark is a little small, maybe difficult to navigate.
Typical motel rooms, which are small by Australia New Zealand standard, can be quite tight if you have luggage; but room and bathroom are clean, sleep is good. Expected for a ski area.
Price is reasonable.
Note: There is no mobile phone coverage once you start driving up the mountain, for approximately 4 hours (this is with Telecom NZ). You will only get mobile phone coverage about 15 minutes before arriving in town. If you need to call the motel before their reception closes, or call anywhere else, call before you start your trip up the mountains.
