We stayed here during out second holiday in NZ, and what a lovely building it is. They decor is very 1950’s, and extremely well maintained and preserved.
A real highlight with this hotel is the original lift shaft; it clunks and rattled, but is great fun and so in keeping with the rest of the decor. From what I remember there is parking but it’s a bit of a squeeze, if you all park sensible there is room.
All the staff we encounted seemed nice enough, if not a little rushed, I think they had a wedding party.
The only complaint I do have, it seemed that there was no quiet way to close the doors; they close with one almighty bang.
The room we stayed, whilst nice clean and comfortable seemed a tad on the small side, but it is an old building and probably was not meant for travellers who have to carry so with them. The bathroom was nicely laid out and again was clean.
There is a restaurant attached to the hotel, which we found to be a tad on the expensive side, as the hotel is located right next to the town, going out for a meal wasn’t a real issue.
Personally I don’t like Pamly North, but staying here certainly eased my time there. If I had to go back to Pamly I would stay here again.
