Nice grounds, good rooms

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Oct 2023via mobile
The room was a good size and had a kitchenette. No toaster if you want to toast anything but that didn't bother me. Plenty of individual milks in the fridge for hot drinks and a great supply of hot drink sachets on the kitchenette bench. The pillows are fat instead of thin ones you can stack or have thin, which was interesting, so if you like thin pillows bring your own. Lovely grounds to sit in if it's nice weather and they have made things easy with a key drop in the accommodation building.

          I did not visit the hotel.
          However Rainbow is exceptional, with efficiency and kindness.
          I wanted to arrange a bottle for a free ds wedding day that I could not attend and Rainbow did this so effortlessly for me.
          Thank you so very much, you don’t get customer service or interaction like this in the U.K

          Thank you again

          Lovely welcome from Rainbow. Nice clean and comfortable accommodation. Tiny kitchenette area, had kettle and microwave, but missed not having a toaster. Note that there is no lift and when the cleaners had their trolleys in the corridors in the morning, they were a bit in the way when hauling luggage about.

          We stayed 2 nights with family and the location, surroundings and service were amazing. The family studio is compact and with 3 adults you need to be family or close friends but the beds are comfy, there's all the supplies you'd expect in a hotel room with kitchenette and it was very clean and well maintained.
          The service on the phone and making our booking was great. There was a small hiccup when the ground floor room we requested wasn't available but we were offered a generous discount to compensate.
          The property is very central to Upper Hutt and surrounds and the main roads and yet is set in parklike surrounds with bush and trees behind,complete with a resident ruru/morepork.
          Highly recommended

          The location is perfect, the rooms are clean, the venue is beautiful the staff are great. I got married here over the weekend and everything was perfect. I would 10000% stay here again and recommend it to others too. The best venue that I've been to I'm a long time. Also Rainbow is a star.

          We stayed one night, and chose this place because it offered a quiet, low-level accommodation option with good parking and a short drive to the ferry. The grounds are lovely, with the two-story motel-type units located in one block alongside the main house/reception venue overlooking expansive lawns. The units are about 30 years old and some features have been upgraded so there is a mix of modern and original fittings. Everything is very clean and nicely presented. We had a ground floor unit; each one has doors opening onto the lawns and a back entry close to the carpark at the rear, so access is good. We enjoyed a very quiet night before heading to the ferry which took us only 20 minutes. The main house has a great history and looks like a great wedding/function venue. A good mid-range option. Special thanks to the welcoming and pleasant hosts.

          Room tip: Ground floor rooms open onto the lawns.
