Guest reviews:

A quaint hotel in a historic building with lots of thoughtful touches. The place is updated but totally well done!

This place has character. It's a unique, antique hotel - as evidenced by the decor. The staff made sure my room was warm upon arrival. It was quiet.

Great location to travel to and from the local attractions, including Milford Sound or Queenstown. Large airy kitchen, with basic cooking supplies, spices, and farm fresh eggs! Melanie has wonderful touches throughout, with local coffee and soaps.

What a nice decorated hotel. It was great to have a big kitchen. Good beds. There are 4 toilets, 2 separate showers and a separate bath which was very handy. We loved it here!
