We were with a group , check in overnight. Wifi cost NZD 5.00 free in reception. Nothing to watch on TV. Room is simple, bed hard. Toiletries limited. Nice buffet, breakfast Ok.

The hotel is in the middle of no-where and next to a service station on a main road. WiFi is chargeable although free in reception. Restaurant and bar area are nice and there is a choice of either A La Carte or Buffet for dinner, buffet costs $25. Breakfast had a good selection, only disappointment was the fruit came out...

Hotel is old but clean. They are scarce in toiletries so bring your own. You can not use free wifi in your room only in the bar/restaurant area. They told us that it would be open 6:30 am and people were kept waiting out in the cold for 20 minutes. Some of us went to the reception to ask what... More

This was a good quality hotel and the rooms were spacious and well appointed. The bed could do to be upgraded as it was a bit on the firm side. Meals in the restaurant were very good and plenty to choose from in the buffett. Nice cosy bar, staff friendly, enjoyed my stay here.

Our tour group stopped here for one night. Staff was helpful and friendly for our group. WiFi in rooms normally is not free but since our room 110 was above the office, we got good reception for free. The buffet dinner and breakfast were good.

Ten of us called in for dinner. The male waiter was good, the women were NOT. A smile and some enthusiasm would have been good. Found meals to be quite expensive for so so food and I am definitely not fussy. Lady started to clear our plates when some were still eating, that's just so rude so I asked her... More

Looks good from the outside but this is defiantly where it stops. The rooms are outdated and the beds need replacing. We paid good money at the restaurant for a meal and the lamb shanks where boiled in water. They came out grey and awful. They wanted payment for Internet which is the only hotel in our holiday which did... More

WiFi was an issue in almost all of the places we stayed at in New Zealand - often frustrating if you needed to catch up on emails but here it was reasonably ok. I would class this as a motel given the layout and it was clean with friendly staff.There was plenty of choice for breakfast and the bed was... More
