You,re paying for the view.
Was disappointed with the hotel, you are paying for the view. Bathroom looked like a hospital bathroom with the tiniest basin. Bedroom was tiny also and was grubby. The towels smelled of food. Breakfast and dinner options are ok but nothing special. Please sort out the beans, tomatoes and scrambled eggs as these looked horrible.

Room at the end of the road
You are paying for the location and the views here. The rooms are large but plain and tired. The restaurant is only buffet, but a decent buffet.

Poor hotel service
The hotel is very dated and has not been maintained well. Service was questionable and so what rude.

Comfortable and convenient
“Premium Double/Twin Room, Mountain View” did not disappoint with clear views of Mt Cook/Aoraki (provided there was no cloud/mist). Room 520 was quiet, beds and pillows were soft and comfy. The Snowline Bar is a cool place to hang out and enjoy the views with a drink or snack. Staying there for 7 nights, we were initially disappointed the restaurant offered buffet service and not a la carte, but we quickly ended up looking forward to dinner and dessert.

6/10 Good

Overall had a great visit, great scenery and location. Meals were great and staff very good even though they were still getting up to speed after Covid. Disappointed with room. After booking three months ahead, we got to out room to find it was adjacent to lifts/stairwell, the bathroom was set up for a person with disabilities and the view (which we anticip[ated as being 180 degrees and or of Mount Cook at least) was blocked as the room was flush against the main building. Has a nice view of the range opposite Mt Cook and the roof of the main building and the aircon. Only view of Mt Cook (the reason we came) was from the carpark and or by walking out the front. I am not sure of the hotel was full ?? but would have thought for the price paid a better view would have been available. Disappointed.
