Okay, until they used our bathroom. #thatsafirst
We were in room 505, towards the back of the property - tiny room (maybe two feet max on each side of the bed), view of the parking lot, and a nice spacious bathroom. Little space for personal effects - two of three small drawers were filled, the third was broken, and closer too short to hang anything. Complementary Wifi access was nice, though quite limited. Great toiletries! Location is conveniently located, and parking was ample. Would have given 4 of 5 stars. HOWEVER, biggest problem was when we came back in the afternoon from our first day of hiking, the room smelled TERRIBLE! It was evident that whoever cleaned the room had used the toilet (urine was on the lid and surrounding floor) and the room smelled STRONGLY of feces. We complained to the front desk, and their solution was to send the cleaning staff to our room to clean again (after we asked them not too), leaving the small room smelling like a combo of bleach and feces. They later sent over a plate of cheese and crackers as an apology, but a different room would have been much, much better for our second night. Overall, just okay, not great, and will choose a different location next time we visit Lake Tekapo.

Lovely Stay, But Chose Room Wisely
We enjoyed our stay, although we were disappointed with our "mountain view" (technically we could see a mountain, but it wasn't one of the beautiful snow capped mountains). Our suite was large and well appointed. We did notice that some of the other rooms were very, very small with no view and were happy we sprung for a good room. The kitchen was beautiful, although we only had coffee (watch out for hidden charges for the coffee pods). The wifi allowance was small. The hotel is a very short walk from the local bars, restaurants and outdoor attractions.

Online Hotel photo's misrepresented what we got!
We arrived 3.30pm, after travelling all morning, only to be told, "our room was not ready yet, can we come back in an hours time". When we did entre our room it was not what I thought I booked after viewing fab photo's online of large windows looking out to Lake Tekapo, but what felt like a cupboard under the stairs, little room to unpack suitcases, no chair had to view T.V. on the bed, with a narrow window overlooking the carpark at the back of the Hotel. Inadequate car parking, a car was parked on the walkway which restricted access to rooms carrying suitcases. Expected a lot better for the price we paid!

Nice view
This is a resort style hotel. I stayed at a two bedrooms 2 stories duplex. Bedrooms are downstairs, a full kitchen and living room plus a big balcony are upstairs with good view of the mountain. The wifi is terrible, the range hook is not working, so the place full of smell from cooking.
