Stayed here for 5 midweek nights. Lovely hotel with a warm welcome. Hotel room was located in a different wing from main body so a little chilly walking to the restaurant and bar. Nice comfortable shuttle airport. Only issue was a outside light that lit my room all night. So had a bad sleep. Asked for it to be addressed....

The service we experienced was exceptional. The staff were very understanding with our situation and extremely helpful. The meals at Pattersons Restaurant were delicious and not too large. The room we had was well laid out and very comfortable.

We arrived with 3 tired kids in tow after midnight to a lovely room with QS bed and foldout sofa plus 2 singles and free wifi. Warmly greeted and helped with our soggy luggage. Bathroom is new and had a wow factor with floor heating and lovely new fittings and towels. Breakfast was lovely and the staff are always helpful....

This is a modern hotel with multiple amenities. Rooms are very spacious and immaculately clean and superbly equipped, with large bathrooms. Staff are very friendly and very accommodating and the shuttle to the airport was prompt and clean. Food at Paterson's was excellent and well priced with ample serving sizes.

We stayed here while touring the South Island, and even though we found this hotel by accident, it couldn't have been "planned" any better. There were some renovations taking place which unfortunately led to a bit of noise in the morning, but our rooms were perfect, location perfect, meals superb, service great, rates reasonable and the staff most obliging. Recommended!
