5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This is an older style hotel but the rooms have been nicely renovated. The foyer / reception area is still a little dark but that's due to the low ceilings which can't be fixed. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. We had a Deluxe Suite which was really HUGE! Bed was very comfy and room was well appointed. Location is excellent - right in the middle of town so everywhere is just a couple of minutes walk. Parking was good. Room was quiet too. Highly recommended and would stay again.

Great location, old hotel

Hotel is in the heart of the town. But most other hotels aren't far from it. The staff was absolutely wonderful. Hotel needs to be updated and refurbished. The interrupts are all very dark with wierd lighting that makes it worse. Would say they hotel is less of a more and more of a motel level.

Nice location for access to the town. Room was nice but didn't have bedside lighting which makes it different to read in bed.

When we arrived at our room it was west facing with the curtains wide open, the room was 32 degrees according to an app on my phone. No way to cool it down, one little pedestal fan that kept cutting out. Went down to talk to the manager about how ridiculously hot the room was and was advised that it normally not that hot, crack a window and get a bit of air flow and all will be good. Then proceeded to ignore me to greet a bus that arrived. Could not stay in the room for the heat. The fan kept cutting out, the shower would not work. The night manager to his credit attempted to help (unlike his boss) and moved us to another room that stank of mould, but we dare not complain as you could at least tolerate the temperature and the shower worked. We traveled all over the NZ South Island for 2 weeks and this was easily the most expensive accomodation we had, it deserved a minus rating. Never will I stay with a Distintion brand ever again.
