Pros:if you have to stay at this hotel, request a room with a view of the church. Also, the hotel was clean and had nice shampoo.

Cons:In the 2 weeks that we spent traveling throughout NZ, we have had wonderful accommodations with the Rutherford being the exception. This hotel does not belong in the luxury category, although by the decor and age of the bedspread (yes, I said bedspread) and bed linens perhaps it once was. The lobby is stale and lifeless even in high season. Customer service was poor. And the very worst part, THEY RATION WIFI DATA!! Good luck browsing the internet to plan your activities, email friends and family back home or share your photos on social media!!
