Had two nights here and that was two nights to long. Wifi not good. No hot water and reception shuts at 9pm. Rooms are basic clean and large. Parking easy but it is on the edge of town so a walk or quick drive into town for meals.

Old place, gardens in need of tidy up. Staff were friendly. First hotel room we were in smelled like someone had thrown up so were moved to motel unit. This was in much better condition and clean. Location average as it was just as you come into town, rather than waterfront but ok.

I've stayed in some dodgy motels in the past so maybe my standards are pretty low but this place was great for the one night we stayed. Rooms were clean and while definitely not "modern" I much prefer a clean room to a pretty one. The bed was comfy and the shower hot (though water pressure leaves much to be...

We have stayed here for two nights. Have paid $180 per night. Rooms are old and disgusting. The coffee/ tea supply are insufficient. The carpert is sticky and detached from the underlay and rolledup. Worse than all , if you want to have a shower in the morning it is freezing cold after 7 am as a lot of people...

Not sure why my experience differed from other travelers but our room was updated and clean - perhaps a different section of the motel? In any case we rather enjoyed our stay despite the patchy wifi, and it was a good base for us to explore Milford Sound.

The hotel does not look like the pictures in the listing. The rooms were simple but clean and adequate for our 2 night stay. The views from our room were nice. The hotel looks run down on the outside as well as in the hotel itself, it appears they have done up the rooms at some point but that's it....

This hotel definitely looks better in their listing than in reality. It looks run down when you approach it. The motel is separate from the hotel and I would not like to stay in the motel part. The sink had a slow drain, the toilet had a perpetual running water issue. When we arrived the room smelled like it had...

I spent 2 nights in the hotel. When I get in, it smelled like someone vomitted somewhere in the room. The pillows were dirty. As I stayed 2 nights, I noticed that they did not clean up the room. They just tidied it. Otherwise the hotel is at 15 minutes walk from town center.

This place was a pleasant surprise. The room was clean ans Spacious. This is not a 5 star hotel but is excellent value for money and is just as you come into town. It is quiet, the car park is the only let down it is gravel but it is not a deal breaker. We enjoyed our stay and will...

If you book this place for a bedroom on a budget you won't be disappointed. I expected a pool and jacuzzi as advertised, both of which were closed. The room was clean and tidy. However the rest of the buildings are really dated. On the upside the staff were lovely and very helpful.
