            Individual guest reviews

            • Family with children
              7.4

              I just love the old-time grandeur of the place and no matter what the weather it's a lovely place to relax and enjoy the sauna/pool, snooker, movies, table-tennis, or just sit in the lounge by the fire and read, have a high-tea, play cards or sip wine!

              For the money, I think more attention could be paid to cleaning.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              I upgraded my room to Executive Spa Suite so have commented on that room. The lounge with fireplace was most relaxing to just sit and enjoy on such a cold day. The service was very good with provision of food and drinks on order. The dinner at the restaurant was excellent and once again service was really good!

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              The hotel has nice old world ambience with graceful public areas and friendly staff.

              The rooms are pretty tired now and well overdue for major refurbishment. The bathrooms are very dated.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              The quality of the building interior and the environment it is in

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              It was so relaxing. Reading in the library, sitting in the lounge in the afternoon with a quite drink in front of the fire. Cruising up to the Bruce. Viewing the surrounding mountains. It was great.

              ALl the above. The sfaff where great and friendly. We enjoyed the video on the History of the hotel, espeacially as I work for Fletchers who built it in 1929.

            • Single
              8.8

              Absolutely extraordinary location, with gorgeous landscapes nearby. The restaurant serves very good food.

              Staff at the reception know little about the area. Expensive internet use.

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              The staff were excellent. very polite, unobtrusive. helpful. the setting beautiful even when we could not see the mountains. To be able to curl up on the couch and read was a treat.

            • Couple
              6.2

              It was great to feel the heritage of the hotel including the quaintness of design. The central lounge is extraordinary and the bed was very comfortable.

              Everything appeared threadbare. They said they were renovating, room-by- room, but there weren't many people staying there and we were in a decidedly aged room with a noisy refrigerator a bathroom with an odd smell. In addition, one would expect staff at a hotel with this pedigree to behave more enthusiastically. The waitress at the Pihanga cafe was great.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              The large size of the rooms, and the grandeur of the scenery. The meals whilst expensive were delicious and the dining service exemplary.

              The swimming pool is a bit of an overstatement, but it is good fo lounging in after a hard days walk.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              Location, location, location. The outdoor activities were the highlight of the stay. (Including the meals at the pub across the road....

              Tired old building - fantastic bones but not cared for now. No provision for a reasonably priced wvening meal.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Location, location, location. Evening meals. Resident's lounge superb, wood fires, views from windows. Felt like Hercule Poirot would appear at any minute.

              No safe in room - really surprising for a hotel of such quality.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              Food & service at hotel restaurant was excellent, perfect for a special occasion

              Fridge a bit noisy in the room but nothing to complain about.
