My wife and I were being driven by her (Kiwi) brother around South Island. He had booked a series of 2 bedroom hotels to stay at overnight en route including the Theatre Royal in Kumara. We were given a really friendly welcome and the key to our cottage which was down the road. We were expecting the usual bare bones motel - room, little space, the minimum facilities, poky bathroom etc. Instead we were amazed at the size of the apartment we had been allocated. The rooms were large. The furniture would not have shamed a top class UK hotel. Everything about the rooms shouted quality. There was even a hip bath in the ensuite of one room. There was access to a large garden and great views. Although the cottage was near a main road sounds from passing traffic posed no problems. We were really amazed - especially because this was not even the most expensive place booked for us. It was certainly the classiest!
That night we had booked a meal for the four of us at the hotel itself and, once again there was a good menu to choose from and good service.
That night we all slept well in our comfortable beds.
I won't be reviewing all the places we stayed at - one was really not good - but the Theatre Royal Kumara deserves lots of praise.More
