        The room was spotless and lovely amenities... very comfy bed and great linens and towels... the huge spa bath was fantastic! The furniture a bit knocked/showing it’s age and quite noisy from street but otherwise good! Enjoyed being able to make coffee with nice and clean mini kitchen area.

          This is a traditional old-NZ style provincial town hotel with decor and decorations like something from the1950s or 1960s; and a lot of fun because of that.

            Great location and awesome on-site pub. Rooms are a bit tired, but very comfortable. In-room kettle could use a good clean, but overall, a very pleasant stay. Great service at the pub - I highly recommend dinner and/or drinks there if you stay.
