Its an old hotel , but is going through some refurbishment , I stayed in a room that had a brand new bathroom. The staff were so friendly and helpful , I was given and extra heater as it was extremely cold that day - snow not far away and you could feel that on the wind. Everything that I asked for was readily available. I had dinner in the dining room - roaring fire was awesome and no issue having dinner on my own. Lots of families and other business travellers . Really handy for local attractions. Old school customer service values and extended friendly welcome
We stayed one night in this hotel as part of a 5-day driving tour of North Island. It is old, and is showing its age (needs new carpeting badly, floors creak like you'd expect), but it has character and a lot of class. The rooms are large, well appointed, clean and warm.
Unfortunately, the restaurant seemed quite disorganized/understaffed/overwhelmed, even with the lighter crowds of winter. That was the main disappointment with the property, otherwise I would have given it a 4 rating.
