We had a great stay at this hotel. We booked the mountain view room and had great views. The room was a good size and was clean, tidy and well maintained. The shower was really nice to use and the wall heater worked quickly. The hotel is in a great location, just a short walk to restaurants. The staff were also friendly and showed us some info about the town

Had a one night stay at this hotel. Check-in went well with helpful and friendly staff. The room although compact was clean and the bed comfortable. Handy location away from the main street. Would stay again.

Booked a compact room and got a free upgrade to a bigger queen room which was nice.
Went out for a drink and came back to a cold room. The heated towel rail, bedroom heater and half of the electric blanket didn't work. Went to reception to see what could be done but it was closed at only 5.50pm. Still closed when we left at 9.15am the next day.
Handy location just needs better on site service.

Hi Jo,
Thanks for stopping of with us on the 30th. Thanks for letting Miyargy our morning receptionist, know the electric blanket in your studio was not heating on one side, before your departure.
Our rooms have a key tag energy saving feature in them. When you came home from dinner I suspect that your room key did not make it back in the key tag holder next to the light switch. In this room, unit 2, it works the power for the heater and towel rail. I have upgraded the label on the heater to have a larger font making it easier to read.
Hope you enjoyed the rest of your journeys around the south island.
Kindly
Adam

Simply can’t fault this hotel. The location is a stones throw away from restaurants and booking agents. The staff, especially Jim are awesome. The breakfast is amazing, simple but really really good. Did I mention Jim, he’s so helpful. The beds were comfy and the pillows were awesome. We loved this placed. One last shoutout for Jim, he was the real MVP.
