6/10 Good

Below average and poor sleep - wouldnt recommend!
We were in Room 9. Firstly the staff tried to charge us a higher price than we booked online for, then got very obviously annoyed when we showed proof we had booked cheaper with & made the whole checkin really awkward. Secondly, advertising the room as having “2 beds” is a bit of a joke. The single bed is child size & if you roll over you genuinely fall out as the mattress tips off the base due to your size (for the record I am average weight/height - not a giant & not obese). As two adults this made it really awkward as one of us had to get the child’s bed - although the queen size wasn’t much better with a huge bow in the centre & springs coming through. The electric blankets did not work (we even tried using different plugs), and the shower mixer falls off in your hand & onto your foot in the shower every time you try to use it. There is no water pressure at all (I realise they are trying to be environmentally friendly & probably restricting use but we literally had to use a facecloth to rinse body wash off). We tried to raise these issues when discovered but the person who checked us in had already left & no one else could help as they were working on the bar. We tried again in the morning but as it is a pub/hotel, the only staff onsite was the cleaner who didnt understand as English wasnt their first language. I guess if your exhausted from a day on the rail trail you might not care, but we dont recommend & wouldnt stay again. A rip-off for the price.

We stayed at the Hotel for a night along the Otago Central Rail Trail. The Hotel is very close to the trail and the grocery store and has bike parking out the back. All the staff were very friendly and kind. Room rates were very reasonable, especially as breakfast was included, which left us with more to spend on the delicious dinner! Thanks for a great stay.
