The rooms looked new and well preserved and were very confortable. The restaurant was very good.

The room was cold and the staff not very helpful. When I checked in I asked about the weather and the "trainee" said, do you think I have a crystal ball?" Later they asked would I like to eat dinner and that they would bring me a menu, but they never did. Was the worst hotel we stayed in in our New Zealand trip.

While the view of the mountains & glacier was great, our stay was spoilt by the noise from the restaurant/bar opposite, which was quite unacceptable - especially for accommodation at this rate.

Our room was great with a view towards the glacier. Check in and out were very efficient and friendly. We were somewhat disappointed with the restaurant as we felt the food standard, quality and range were average. So much so that we sought a local restaurant on our second night

I advised I would check in at 2 pm. I arrived at 1.50 pm and was told the room would be ready in 10 minutes. At 2.15 I was advised the room would be ready in 10 minutes. At 2.30 I was advised the room would be ready in 10 minutes. At 2.45 I was advised the room would be ready in 10 minutes. I had to leave all my stuff at reception as I was going on a guided expedition at 3 pm. I returned at 8 pm the room was ready.

Breakfast choice was a bit limited but the dinner was exceptionally good - good portions, well prepared and presented, and very tasty. The views from the breakfast/dining room of the mountains and glaciers was excellent.

The facility of the hotel is very aged and the rate is certainly overpriced- which I am able to stay in a 5-star hotel in Auckland for less, on New Year's Eve! I am also not satisfied with the location of the wing I stayed, which is farther away from the town than the main wing. Carpark is not located with easy access to the room. I am also surprised to hear that your company is charging 10% commission from them, in addition to the booking fee I have already paid- this is not a fair charge to the customers.

Good location and a short walk from the centre. Our room was a good size with excellent views. Hotel food was poor with little choice. Reception staff are extremely helpful and our stay there was pleasant.

The view from this hotel was absolutely stunning. The room was outstanding and much appreciated were the in-room facilities for travellers for laundry and food preparation. All in all, can't recommend it too highly. Barbara
