Location was perfect. Rooms had heating but no cooling option except for a table fan. There's no lifts in the hotel and there are rooms on upper level so this should be clarified in the advertise.

Excellent location and superb customer relations! Very friendly check-in staff. In my two weeks tour from Queenstown and Christchurch, this is by far the best hospitality I've received. The only negative is the walls are a bit too think could hear moving upstairs quite loudly and also hear the next door neighbours. The bathroom door has big paint peeling, which I'm sure can be easily fixed if they were informed.

Lovely rooms in updated block. Wonderful staff at desk and cafe. Great cafe facility. Shame that Jack rabbits closed on our first day but understandable that staff shortages could be the reason. A very great shame that the main common area is so dark and unwelcoming... appeared to be closed also so limited to our rooms. Had a very comfortable stay all the same
