Booked in at the last minute. Reasonable price considering it was a long weekend. Nice large room with ensuite. Clean and very comfortable. Washcloth (flannel) was even provided. Very accessible to the town centre (across the road).

After a quick meal on our travels and decided to give the Gretna Hotel a chance. A bit rough looking, but were greeted with friendly staff and locals. Had the steak burger (totally delicious n juicy), chicken burger (good) and the lamb chops (perfectly cooked & yum) with a nice jug of cider to wash it down. All big servings, Staff couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Definately worth a stop at this friendly local

Needed a stopover in Taihape while on a roadtrip. Gretna hotel is a basic but pleasant hotel that provides good value for money. Decent sized rooms and comfortable beds. Plenty of heating. Bathrooms are clean. Hot water takes a while to flow in the shower. Staff are friendly and helpful. Wifi access was a bit spotty - couldn't get a good signal in our room. Overall, would recommend for anyone looking to spend a night or two in Taihape.

As we were just wanting to overnight in Taihape, we decided to take a chance on the cheap rate at Hotel Gretna. The receptionist was cheerful & helpful. The room was clean with attractively presented towels on the bed. No en-suite though - shared bathrooms. A kitchen/dining room was available to make tea/coffee & where we ate the breakfast we’d taken along. There’s also a lounge with TV (no remote) plus a selection of books. We chose the roast dinner for our evening from the good selection on the menu. One downside was the traffic noise through the night. Suggest asking for a room away from the road.
