6/10 Good

Best accommodation in Putararu
Grand old hotel that has seen better days. Room was clean and spartan, linoleum, bed, 2 chairs, table, side table, TV, closet, shelves. Bed was VERY COMFORTABLE. Bathroom, I was not keen to use. Bath with shower, wash basin and toilet. The shower curtain should have been thrown out as was EXTREMELY dirty along the bottom.

Loved the old art deco style and large room. However the tea & coffee are of poor quality and very few tv channels available. In fact, when it was raining in the morning, the tv reception was CRAP 👎 THE COOK Restaurant was very good though for the price & Sunny? is an excellent chef & host 👍

the hotel is quite run down and they are obviously in the process of doing it up, it took awhile to find someone so we could check so first impression was not great but when we got to our room we were very pleasantly surprised big light sunny room comfy bed bathroom though old in good working order and in fact the shower was one of the best showers we had on our trip round the top of the north island. would stay again.

Staff were friendly and helpful - I was given a free room upgrade. The hotel is old (and showing her age) but is clean and retains her Art Deco charm.

Probably quite opulent when it was built (and the entrance and stairs still are) but the rooms count as pretty basic now. But fine at the price. The restaurant is good. Sadly, reception couldn't locate our Expedia booking, made more than 24 hours earlier.
