Excessively priced for what it is. Considered a hotel as it provides meals but no other facilities. At half the price I would have been happy to stay but would never consider using the hotel again given the rates per bedroom.

Worth the 5 minute drive from town centre. Modern amenities, thoroughly cleaned, and great responsiveness from staff. Heater/fireplace a cozy addition. Fantastic value for money.

The fireplace is not real, do not be fooled. Overall very nice place and very comfortable. A bit far out of the heart of everything so only stay here if you have a car to access the main mall/glaciers.

Thanks for staying with us and for your feedback. In deed our fireplaces are electric, as you can see in the photos of our rooms. This type of fireplaces are very safe and they can warm the rooms in just minutes. We are happy to read that you found your room comfortable and we hope that you will enjoy the rest of your trip around New Zealand.
