We stayed in a garden villa and it was really old and outdated. It's nice and spacious and clean but that's the only positive. The windows looked straight out onto the footpath so you had no privacy if you wanted natural sunlight. There were cool white lights in the lounge room, warm white lights in the bedroom. Light above one side of the bed was blown. Very old TVs, no aircon, a shower tap system that I've never seen before! Separate hot and cold taps over the sink was very odd. Some photos of the rooms have glass showers but ours was an old cubical with shower curtain.The bed was so springy and soft, the 2 nights we stayed we both slept poorly. The location is great for visiting milford sound and the customer service was great too- we rang a few times and staff were friendly and responsive. Unfortunately I wouldn't stay here again unless they renovated the complex.

Hotel was in a great location. Facilities are looking a little tired but this is reflected in reduced prices. Dinner at restaurant was very good.
