Good first: the views all around this area are tremendous so the hotel has great views, if you have line of sight to the lake or mountains. I can only discuss the very back row of rooms, where we stayed. The room was very hot receiving the evening sun. Everything in the room was cheap and outdated. The mattresses should...

We booked and unserviced double room (which means it's not cleaned daily whilst you stay) but being as we were only staying 1 night this seemed logical. The room was basic but clean and functional. Good Points. The view, tea coffee milk and a fridge in your room. Food and the bar service was good as was the bottle store...

Hotel makes you feel like you have time jumped back to the 60's. Has that well loved and retro look. Nice and clean and comfortable, quiet room easy to sleep. However the morning view is one of the best we have had in NZ.

We had a room in the front building, which faces the beautiful lake scene. There is a common, covered front porch facing the gravel parking lot, but most notably facing the grand mountains and lake. Our room was clean and had good cross-ventilation. The associated restaurant and pub serve good beer and good food -- the lamb chops were delicious....

This hotel is an older model but well cared for and beautifully maintained. Checking in was a breeze and the manager thoughtfully upgraded me as a single traveler from a three bed room to a single. Kitchenettes are well stocked and my bed was comfortable. Units are serviced each day and all seem to have a veranda with wooden table...

Stayed for 1 night in a queen bedded room with cooking facilities. The lady who assisted me with check in was really friendly. Arrived in the evening and checked out before dawn. There were restaurants nearby but I didnt have my meals there. Great for stopover. Room was clean and I am satisfied.

Stayed in top floor room. Beautiful view of Manapouri Lake! We were told at checkin on Sat night there would be a band and DJ til late, but fortunately our worst disturbance fears didn't eventuate! (We were tired after full day in Milford Sound.) Room was very basic and balcony not private. Bed was soft but ok and place was...

A fifties style motel....rooms were a bit on the small side, but very clean.....a basic efficiency. Breakfast available at a fee. The internet was spotty at best. Watch if you try to book it online through Expedia etc as they charge higher than the rate at the hotel....so no savings....best to book this one directly with the hotel Good for...

My wife and I were booked here as our stopping point before Milford Sound. Rooms are like stepping into a time warp....rattling wooden beds, stale smelling carpets and decor from the 70s. Could badly use an update. That said there were friendly staff and the location was amazing
