We stayed two nights, with two teenagers, having had to move the booking forward a week.The first night was in Premium Plus Queen Qn. The room was spacious, tidy and well appointed with exceptional views. An extra single bed was supplied so kids didn't have to share. Because we changed our booking and the hotel was booked to capacity Saturday night, we had to shift for the second night to two Standard Mt Cook View rooms. These were tidy but were in need of refurbishment. A couple of niggley things that could make a difference were a noisy bathroom fan that always came on with the bathroom light and a single bedside lamp. Would have been good to have been separate bedside lamps for those that read. Smaller room with older style decor. Evening meals in the restaurant were superb, the staff were friendly and professional. With covid level 2 in effect, the hotel was unable to offer a buffet for Breakfast taking individual breakfast orders. This threw a spanner in the works with quite a wait and an order being forgotten. Over all a special place, helpful friendly staff and a magical experience experience with the park and the brilliant walks.

The seating in the lounge by the bar was particularly poor and uncomfortable except for the stand alone couches. Most uncomfortable we have experienced in our worldwide travels
