    Good location and excellent dinner included in the price, all the staff were exceptional. Beautiful bush setting and very comfortable bed.

    The room could have been a little cleaner (hair in bathroom) and for the price the room was on the small side and decor was a little too generic to be classified as a luxury stay.

    Rain forest setting

    Same menu in restaurant both nights. Not impressive for what tries to be 5 star. Only communal area a dark bar area. In a part of New Zealand where rainfall high a bright area to sit would be nice

    Food service was excellent both the dinner and the breakfast.

    This place was incredibly over-priced. It is really a middle level hotel like a Hampton Inn or similar calling itself a resort. Much inferior to the Hilton in Queenstown for example at twice the price. It specializes in bus tour groups on package deals.

    The view outside the window on the rainforest was quite fabulous. Nice New Year dinner, better than expected to be in this small town.

    The price is quite steep considering what you can get. You can get similar quality hotels by 50% cheaper elsewhere in NZ.
