Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Second time at this hotel for a quick trip e.g. one night. We booked last minute j both occasions with our dog. SO accommodating squeezing us in despite having both dog rooms already taken. There is a difference between being dog tolerant and dog friendly and the staff / hotel were all the latter - the little things like dog treats and pats make a difference. Always super clean and the spa area is also a great addition. Great value!

Great location. Hotel a tad tired they could do with investing in new pillows etc as quality lacking. Breakfast choices great; however staff in breakfast room need training as no thought given on any morning to ensuring things were clean/tidy ie not returning to kitchen without something in their hands. Made breakfast area a tad unkept. Considering hotel competition in area I would stay elsewhere next time. Emma in the bar was just terrific. Great personality and friendly.

We only stayed here for one short night and because the room was so charmless, that’s about as long as I would have wanted to. But it was clean, had a nice coffee & tea corner, and free parking. Every staff member we encountered was pleasant & helpful.

Very nice hotel. Customer service was excellent. We had to leave earlier than they served breakfast. We asked for some cereal for the room in the morning. They made up a wonderful bowl of yogurt with 4 fresh fruits in addition to the granola cereal and milk. We would definitely stay there again.

Spartan room that was clean but very basic. We wanted to use the swimming pool but it was so filthy it appeared polluted and no one would go for a swim. The front desk reception was efficient and pleasant. The restaurant was basic with a somewhat limited menu. This property was expensive and not worth the price.

Greetings Thank you for your feedback, although my apologies that some aspects were not to your satisfaction. The swimming pool is treated daily and cleaned regularly and being enjoyed by many of our guests, so your comments about the pool are of surprise. We do have the pool booked for a repaint this year, so perhaps that affected your opinion of it. Nonetheless, I am sorry we missed the mark there for you. Kind regards Carmel Horsley, General Manager.

Stayed here on the last 3 days of our South Island holiday. . Given that this is a chain hotel , we found it to be a step above other chain hotels we have stayed in in the past. Scenic hotel is clean, the bed super comfortable and all the staff were very helpful and always had a smile . Having a restaurant on site was a real bonus and it a very short flat walk into town Will stay again

Nice spacious room, bed comfortable as it had a topper otherwise may have been an issue due to springs. Sizable bathroom. Friendly staff. Perfect location for walking to town and driving to the wine region. Free on site parking We were room only so can’t comment on restaurant.
