We arrived in the early afternoon unaware the Glacier hiking track was closed due to a land slide, the hotel staff member did all he could to inform us about it, and let us know everything else we could do in the town to get the most out of our stay. Super friendly and informative. Lake Matheson was stunning in its place and we could still view the glacier well from the view point 10 kms down the road from the hotel. The room was very spacious and clean and the beds comfy (most comfortbale we have experienced yet in NZ) Only mildly negative we had was the heater seemed far to small to warm our room so it was a little chilly. Only other thing to be aware of is the fire station next door has a meeting on a Wednesday night and lets off an almightly shortish siren at 7.30pm which sounded like a town warning . Once we knew it wasnt we had a giggle haha Overall a very pleasant stay

Very nice hotel and friendly staff. Enjoyed the stay very much. Staff advised places to visit and the time to visit helped us to see wonderful scenaries at right time.

A quick over night on our way to Queenstown. A very comfortable and clean place to spend the night. Would definitely stay again if we ever pass this way again.
