Great views
The hotel is in a great location with lovely views over the lake. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The restaurant was excellent. Unfortunately the level of cleanliness around the hotel lets it down - it needs a deep clean.

6/10 Good

The lake view is not what I expected, the hotel has port of rooms have very good lake view but not my room. you can imagine how disappointed a person feel when he/she chooses to stay this hotel just because of the view but when he/she stepped into the room through the window only can see a car and small boat, a small wharf as well. You need to go close the window then can see the some water. The hotel not only weary but also the original interior decoration and construction quality is low not match its lakeside resort and 4 star. The only acceptance is the bed and beddings, comfort and cleaned. Hells-gate is nearby, that is the second reason we choose the hotel. Wouldn’t come back.

Eat elsewhere, service terrible and food $$$
The place is very run down, and needs an overhaul- the shower was so disgusting, just needed good clean and new grout, the rooms needed some love. They had people living in the toom next door (maybe staff) and they were cooking Indian food and the smell was everywhere. The staff were inexperience and possibly not been on NZ long. And the restaurant was very very overpriced! The hotel didn’t want to know anything at all about the meal/ restaurant! The chicken was so very expensive - a small portion for $33!!! Was crazy!! No rice or carbs and mixed frozen veges!! Breakfasts were disgusting, only instant coffee? For goodness sake! $30 pp and it’s instant coffee!! Beds comfortable (as there was a topper on the mattress, but instead of the King being one, it was two singles, not good.
