Fabulous

Excellent hotel with nice pool. First room I was in didn't have air conditioning, but they moved me to one that did when requested. A few rooms are still being upgraded. Free shuttle to airport runs 24hrs on request. Internet not free but fast if you pay the $5. Very close to airport; a 5 minute ride.

Great Hotel & Staff

This hotel is excellent. The location is perfect relative to the airport and city. The staff was very courteous, friendly and competent. The room was one of the best I had in my two weeks of travel. Most highly recommended hotel in New Zealand.

Lovely staff

We arrived early and our room was not ready but they took us to a lovely lounge with free wi if and then when our room was ready they took us over. Our bags were already there. The Drivers and the Receptionists were friendly and helpful. They collected us from the airport, took us to the Antartic Centre and also to the depot to collect our campervan. Food was tasty. A very pleasant start to our holiday.

From check in through drop off at the airport, this hotel provides a personalized, out of the ordinary, friendly touch. Room and atmosphere of hotel was excellent. I travel frequently, and this hotel is in my top percentile for business or leisure travel.

Good Choice

We stayed here at the end of 3 weeks of traveling. I was very happy with the room. It was quiet, spacious, and the bed was comfortable. I appreciated the shuttle service from the rental car drop off and again early the next morning to the airport. The restaurant food was good and it was nice to be able to eat right at the hotel. The location was close to the airport, rental car return and the Antarctic Center. My only frustration was with the internet. I could not get on in my room. Staff was willing to help but mentioned that Wifi was free in the lobby. I still had a difficult time getting on in the lobby. Staff was again very helpful and I was successful in the lounge.If they could clean that up that would be fabulous. Also, we waited a 30 minutes for a pick up at the rental car office. After 30 minutes I called and they were very prompt in coming to get us. Perhaps my problem was that I had the rental agent call for me. Maybe the message did not get relayed properly. Outside of those 2 mishaps everything was great. I would not hesitate to stay again.
