Review of The Village Inn
2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 Jan 2018
Room had several lights not working and only frontage a metre from parked cars. No sitting out. Reception was empty with no atmosphere and bar also empty and unused.Told no evening meal as large group arriving but ok for 2nd night. Alas untrue again no evening meal. So unless you are in a group (bus tour) forget this transit place with no atmosphere no service. Many much more convivial places to stay in town.

On arrival the Hotel looked a little dated and sterile, my opinion soon changed when we were assisted by a very friendly staff member. The room was surprisingly large and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was also large and clean and the restaurant had a good selection of meals.
The town centre is a 5-10 minute walk away with a big choice of eateries.
Very good stay and would definitely come back.

We stayed here for two nights to visit Milford Sound and is within a 10 minute walk from the lake and town. We didn't have any meals here as we used the kitchenette facilities and The Ranch in town. Which by the way had free wifi and delicious food.
The unit was large, clean and equipped with everything we needed.
Would recommend.

Rooms are spacious. Large desk area which includes tea/coffee making facilities. Internet working properly.

The room was very clean, pleasant and quiet. The rooms have a verandah frontage.

Had everything you needed with comfortable big comfy bed, TV, aircon/heating, own bathroom and toilet. It is very clean and comfortable. Had tea and coffee.

The heating was efficient and the room's lighting was well thought out.

The hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance to everything you need and right on the lake front with a mountain view. Located in central of that town, there are some shops, restaurants, supermarket nearby.

There is parking right at the door step of the room which is very convenient.

You will find 27 high quality pictures of the hotel in my gallery.

I would recommend this hotel to ANYONE-solo travellers, families, backpackers!

Reviewed 4 March 2017 via mobile

Dated, tired, worn out, poor room keeping. In summary the owners haven't spent a cent at this hotel since the 70's. it should be in a 70's museum. Bed springs stuck out, bed covers are well beyond use by date, carpets worn, hairdryer broken, house keeping didn't empty bins or wipe surfaces. Tap leaking. Kitchenette not even stocked with cutlery (except 2 knives) or crockery. Even the glasswear and painting on the wall are original 70's tat. Outside is dated too, it's meant to be some gold mining themed village, might have been a fun idea when it was first done but lack of painting etc now just leaves it looked tired. Terrible value for money.

Reviewed 3 March 2017

Rooms are of a good size, comfortable bed. Large desk area which includes tea/coffee making facilities. Internet was reasonable and included in the room rate. Breakfast not included. Bathroom was fine.

We had a small issue when we checked in as we had two rooms reserved (via a booking site) but they only had one room reserved. However, once I showed them the booking confirmation it was sorted out quite quickly.

Given the overall high prices for accommodation in New Zealand in general I would say that this place is good value for money.
