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.
We had the smell of cigarette smoke and being non smokers we left and will not be back. Ordered the scotch fillet and when it arrived it was rump so demanded a refund total scam Artists we will never return
