This Hotel clearly caters for large groups and tours. The rooms are simple and a lilltle outdated but clean, laundromats are available. Dinner and breakfast are "buffetstyle" and of good quality, just dont expect Haute Quisine. The dininghall is big and therefore a little noisy when full.

We stayed here one night on the move to the north. Friendly personel, nice room, clean and complete with fridge and thee and coffee corner. We didnt use the restaurant because of a large number of Asian guests. When we are around there we would surely go there again.

Motel style. We had a disabled room with a wet room shower. (A flat shower with a hole in the floor for a drain) Asked to change room but was told we couldn't as they were all booked out. The shower curtain was too small in height & width which meant even more water flooded the bathroom floor. Fridge was...

We were on a bus tour and stopped in at Omarama. Very small town and this is one of the only hotels here. It is an older hotel but clean. It could used to be updated some. Hairdryer in rooms are old and when I used one, it started to smoke and burnt out. The buffer supper was very good...

We went here for dinner after our climb to Mueller hut. Was told that the buffet would close in 1/2 hour but we were welcome to fill our plates and stay and eat after that time. We did exactly that, filled several plates and enjoyed our food. Great food for both vegetarian and meat eaters. The staff were very friendly...

This hotel has seen better days. Rooms are pretty average with an extremely small tv. On a positive the bed was comfy and the shower was good. Whist we were on a coach tour the restaurant was rather like a canteen and didn't lend itself to what should have been a relaxing dinner. Not a hotel I would rush back...

The hotel is very good with spacious and very clean rooms. It is located in the heart of the city. The service is excellent and the people are very kind. Great spot to visit on your way to mount Cook.

Arrived about 4.00pm and checked into the room. The room was large and clean with spare single bed and very large rack for cases etc. Great. The receptionist suggested we get an evening meal before the bus loads arrived so we went over for happy hour about 6.00 and had a really pleasant drink before tea and a good buffet...
