The con was the fridge didn't work properly and the room didn't have any toaster or microwave. We had our tea at the restaurant and... More

Have stayed at this hotel many times & as usual the front desk service & rooms are very good. The only thing that lets it down a bit was the dining room service there were 3 staff there but every time we needed something it was quicker to go to the bar & ask. Also the trucks starting up every... More

Booked here on a business trip - room was spacious, clean and warm, bed was great and the price was excellent for what they offer. I have stayed at other accommdations locally but the room size, facilites and location beat them hands-down.

We found the restaurant to be clean and pleasant place to eat although we found the breakfast lacking a little in selection. Staff were very pleasant and food well presented The surroundings of the restaurant allowed you to relax and it created a warm atmosphere

We booked three rooms here and all of us were happy. We had a great view over the river and into town. The rooms were clean and warm. Very friendly hosts. Bed was comfy as well. Very close to town so you can walk to find food. Very quiet. Kitchen in a separate room in unit so spacious

This was a special find. On first glance it is an 80's hotel that probably could do with a bit of an update. After staying there however, this is actually a part of its charm. It is a little dated and rustic. No downsides really. Spotlessly clean, good wifi and facilities, nice and warm. Biggest plus was staff that appeared... More

This has become our go to breakfast stop in Cromwell. Good food and reasonably priced. Oh and it was warm inside. Nice friendly service too. I had the Roasted Mushrooms which was very good. As well you got coffees and toast and spreads for about $17.00

We stayed here for 2 nights with other couples. It has comfortable spacious rooms with sunny balconies with great views across the local vineyards perfect place to enjoy that evening wine. There is a comfortable bar and restaurant on site that does a great pizza.
