Fabulous 8.8 From 107 reviews

Good 6.0
We feel it does not give value for money. Would like to point out that even if we are not allowed to check in before the allotted time the least you can expect is the use of a washroom especially when you have driven over two hundred Kms!

Good location, Great hosts.
Hosts very welcoming, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Great location, very handy to town centre, lake, restaurants and bars. Room recently renovated, very clean and good heating. Lovely breakfast and awesome service. Enjoyed our stay.
Deborah, nz2 night romance trip
Fair 4.0
Overpriced for the room we were in.
Stayed in the room called "Much to do about nothing"... this describes it well, Extremely small room with room only for a bed and the small cabinet for tea and coffee with the smallest en suite I have ever seen. Has a common area for sitting outside the room in a large conservatory outside these 4-5 rooms , this would be great for a group booking to use, but a bit off putting in the evening for a couple especially with nowhere else to sit in the room we had. Host however were very pleasant, room was clean and recently decorated, bathroom look original and old.
Ruth, nz1 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Highly recommended
Liz and Nathan are great hosts. Easy walk to town and 100 yards from lake. Had a great stay here for 2 nights and would highly recommend as a base for visiting the Milford and doubtful sound.

Great breasfast and cozy hotel
Nice hotel with very friendly owners / staff. Room was rather small, with no closet and tiny refrigerator. Great breakfast cooked by owner. Friendly atmosphere, with common areas that invite meeting other guests.
