Was very loud people walking around all the time doors slamming, requested a room with a queen and a singe didn’t get that. For the price I paid compared to other places I have stayed in the last week I thought it was pretty expensive.

Hotel was conveniently located in town centre and a 100 metre walk to the lake shore. The room was adequate however once again as we have found in most hotels in NZ the water pressure in the bathroom area was abysmal. I just dont get it, NZ has water aplenty and they dial down the water pressure to guest rooms to a trickle. The attached Mexican restaurant was OK but not somewhere I would eat at again. The wife was happy with her fajitas though my ribs were not the best....and quite cold. All in all it was an Ok place to lay your head for the night for the outlay which was not pricey.I wonyt condemn it but Im sure it ould be a bit better.

I love the retro charm- but found the plumbing a bit perplexing. Why such bad water pressure?
