  • Thought the breakfast was very good with lots of variety

  • This is definitely not a 4 star hotel - closer to 2 star. Also, do not let the staff try…

  • 4.0.Fair

    We didn’t get the room that we paid for. We booked a family room for 3 and was provided a room for 2. No daily room service. While there was no in-room tea or coffee, you could get hot water from reception area which was then a long walk back to the room. Customers were regularly complaining and yelling at staff in reception area and staff appeared rude and didn’t seem to care much.

    Excellent location, clean hotel.

    Great facilities, restaurant was delicious and breakfast good too! Easy walking distance to everything and central location so easy pick-up for activities further out. Staff helpful. Room slightly small however this is advertised by hotel so was not a surprise.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Terrible hotel

    We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights during December. Upon arriving in our room we found vomit under the basin in the bathroom from previous guests which smelled terribly as the cleaners had failed to clean the mess. Then management moved us to the 5 th floor which was stinking of cigarette smoke. To make matters worse, on the quilt sheet there was a lipstick from the previous guests and at the breakfast buffet frozen baguettes were served that weren't defrosted. Also My daughter went to have shower one evening after 23:00 and in the middle of the shower the water stopped running due to maintenance work that we FAILED to be informed about. Overall, it was a very disappointing stay that was not worth the money and I would never return.

    Great location, nice hotel ...

    Location is great, central, handy for tours, town, shopping and views of river .... It is a nice hotel, just feels a little dated in some areas. The pool was colder than probably it should be, would have been nice to be able to warm up in a nice warm pool after the -20c outside. Other than that all was OK - staff friendly enough, without going the extra mile ... Breakfasts were very good.

    Close to everything

    Whilst I have rated this Hotel low, and we will not stay here again it does cover lots of things you need when on a holiday especially if you have children. I just felt that this hotel treats everyone like a number (money) not a person(referrals). Check in was dreadful only 2 on the counter so you had to wait ages to check in due to filling in paperwork with details which are on your passport the process would be shorter if you take photo copies of passports rather than filling in a form. You have been on a plane and all you want to do is have a shower or freshen up not queue.The room was OK very old looking. No double beds all single beds even though we booked a room with a double bed no drama we just rearranged to room. You cannot make calls from your room, no toiletries, broken lamp and whilst the doona was pulled up on the bed each day the room and bathroom was not cleaned over the 3 nights we stayed. Breakfast was a shambles most things empty and took 10-15 min to refill after you mentioned it to the staff. Conveyer belt food and everything cold and bland. I understands and appreciate it is Christmas and lots of people however the Hotel knows how many are checked in so therefore put more staff on to cover housekeeping and kitchen staff. What I did like about the Hotel was that it was close to everything we required. Should anyone ask me about this Hotel I will tell what I have said in this review and let them make their on decision.

    Convenient location, but needs renovation.

    Conveniently located just a short walking distance to the main shopping street. Bus stop is also just outside the hotel where the tour buses pick you up. We stayed in the Junior Suite, spaceous room, enough for the family of 4. Dissapointing was that the hotel did not have an international power adaptor. Reception staff was cold and reserved. Restaurant staff was ok. Staff english knowledge is very limited. I would not recommend, and would not book this hotel again.

    Excellent location, on the river front and the bottom of the main street. Close to bus stops and shops. The staff were helpful but a little curt at times. Comfortable room with great shower

    Great location

    Great location, staff were lovely.. Only annoyance I had was the long walk to our room from the reception entrance & not being advised by staff of the elevator in the Lapland Safari building that can be used during the day.. we worked this out ourselves on the last day. Breakfast was enjoyable..
