Sad face IconDisliked: Amenities
This place was VERY overpriced for an ordinary room that smelt damp when we walked in. No aircon and a fan that was barely working was all we had to deal with the heat as unable to open doors and windows in evening due to sand flies. More expensive than Queenstown, Te Anau and Franz Josef where we have just been and had fantastic rooms, some two bedrooms with kitchens at a better or half the nightly rate paid here. I suspect the price is high as few hotels in the area but consider going to Greymouth or Westport. Definitely not a ‘resort’

No A/c in room. Was extremely hot and only had a cheap warehouse fan to try to cool the room down, which was hopeless. Restaurant had no menu suitable for kids
