Nice stay!
Nice comfy beds and a great room. Only complaint is the shower had poor pressure. I would recommend and book this hotel again.

Perfect!
We had a great stay at the Rutherford. Can't beat the location--city central is just around the corner, and our room had a view of the cathedral tower. The hotel itself from what we saw was very clean in its design and its condition. We loved our room and our view and slept comfortably. We enjoyed having a substantial English breakfast in the dining room. And the staff was great and very helpful to us in planning our Abel Tasman experience. Would definitely stay there again!

Felt the motel was dated! Tiny bath, queen size bed was ok!! Rang room service several times couldn't get through, hotel staff didn't offer to get them to call back when free or take my order. Certainly didn't seem busy not many cars in car park so would think you would have got better service. Staff on check in were friendly.
