We stayed here for 2 nights with 3 kids over Xmas holidays. We found the place to be charming and beds were very comfy. The grounds are lovely and kids enjoyed exploring them. The food on main dinner menu was pretty expensive which made us reconsider eating there for the whole stay. But the breakfast was a clear winner - very good value and size plates!

The location is stunning and the room was very neat & tidy. Was surprised there was no fridge in the room. Some of our supplies for the trip around the South Island spoiled as a result. The bar was well stocked and loved sitting beside the fire.

Amazingly relaxing property. Excellent staff. Top notch quality restaurant serving City style food! But also great pub grub next door. We loved it all but found that no table/ desk and no chairs in room made it hard to do emails etc. Rooms spotless and walk in shower with plenty of hot water. Would go back for sure.

Fantastic hotel, hidden away in a valley north of Queenstown. Basic extras in room: tea & coffee facilities only but great ambience, olde world. Bar meal wa great, good size serves & very fresh. Worth the drive. Very quiet. I imagine ut would suit mountain bikers summer & skiers winter. Would be happy to return.

The hotel itself was pleasant and room was really nice and clean. Staff service was pretty average....not particularly friendly, "take or leave it" would be the best way to describe it. Our biggest issue was that they are adding or renovating a room which was directly beside us and started banging around in there at 7.15 and had an electric sander start at 8.15. As we were on holiday we were looking forward to a relaxing sleep in which was impossible. If we were advised of this earlier then I guess we would have been able to make a call on whether we were still prepared to stay or not. When we mentioned it to staff on check out, she did say sorry but really didn't seem overly concerned.

We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review on this platform. Good or bad, we are always looking to improve and love hearing from all our guests. Again, we are sorry to hear you found the service so 'take it or leave it', I would like to assure you again, as we did on tripadvisor that your comments in regards to the builder have been passed along to management and taken very seriously. We have had a discussion with the company involved and reminded them we are first and foremost a hotel, with paying guests. While such a thing won't happen again in the future, we are terribly sorry it happened to you. We understand how well anticipated a holiday sleep in is and again, offer our sincere apologies! We wish you all the best on the rest of your travels and do hope you choose to call in again sometime in the future.
