Excellent value for money.

Staff were really helpful upon check in. The hotel looks over the lake and is very well situated in town. An easy walk to the main shopping area.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Make sure you visit the local Cinema to see the film of a helicopter flight over Milford sound. It is really fantastic and well worth watching.

Super location, average hotel.

The view over the lake from our room was great. The rooms were average. Wi-Fi was only free in the lobby area. The restaurant did not seem to be used by anybody during our stay, it had little atmosphere.

The "villas" are behind the hotel

The "villas" are behind the hotel and have no view of the lake. The villa exteriors are drab and in need of a good clean, but the interiors are in good shape. Overall a reasonable choice.

The rooms are a little old but

The rooms are a little old but clean & pleasant; no old carpet smell or stale smoke smells :p The lake view room has a lovely view of the lake, but you see the path way and main road before the lake comes into view. Hence not much privacy with the curtains drawn.
