Room and decor was outdated, but clean. It was a Large room so I would have expected more than just a double bed. This made for a poor nights sleep. My husband and I are used to a king. No air conditioner but the windows opened. The food was average for the price. If you book through an App and...

The motel itself is pretty outdated but we only stayed for one night and it had everything we needed. The buffet for breaky and dinner was pretty good and the view from the dining room is great. The bed was also very soft but fine for us. We weren't expecting much and we didn't get anything luxurious but it worked...

This place is an insult to any paying guest! I can't believe I actually stayed a night and paid for it. The room was extremely shabby with ugly worn shag-pile carpets, ugly bed spreads and curtains and a terrible mattress that slumps in the middle so badly my husband had to sleep on the extra single bed in the room....

I stayed for one night at The Countrytime in Omerama and I wish in retrospect that I'd stayed in Lake Tekapo for two nights instead. The staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel was nice from the outside and had a lovely setting from the garden at the back. It seemed clean enough, but inside looked as though it hadn't...

Caters for coach parties. Evening meal reasonable but eat before the coach party in the evening as advised by reception staff. Free WiFi connection in the public areas but signal not very reliable. Indifferent buffet breakfast after .the coach party had eaten.

Argh. A step back in time to the 60's or 70's. Positive... Clean room Negative... Very dated room furniture, bed spread was threadbare, the bathroom was so old. The whole room needed demo and a make over. Light fittings hadn't been cleaned since installation, mouldy in the bathroom, crappy shower curtain. Very basic toiletries provided Either stop before or push...
