    We were surprised at how good the pub was considering the age of it. The floor creaked in our bedroom but the bed was good. We were in the room next to the bathroom so that was great

    Great for the price

    The accommodation was suited well for the cheap price but a proper kitchen would have been good!

    Super Bargain

    The Blue Pub offers very basic accommodation at exceptionally low prices. The room was bare bones. Bed, coat rack, and small wall shelf. There are shower and toilet facilities down the hall in individual cubicles. There is also a guest lounge area with a TV and kitchenette. My room was neat and clean. The room was not serviced daily. The common area is shared by the 14 guest rooms, but is rarely used by more than a couple of guests at a time. The common area is dated and is a clean up after yourself area, so it depends on the habits of the other guests.There is also access to a veranda that overlooks the large patio and street front. Parking is easy. Downstairs the Pub has a large bar area which was fairly busy most evenings. Located close to the Mt. Hutt ski area, I would stay here again. My wife would go for a more upscale hotel.
