Nice Place Dec 18, 2016
We booked this budget hotel through booking.com. So many mixed review about this hotel (some bad and some good), and we take a change since we do not want to spend too much money on the hotel. It cost NZ$116.20 per night for advanced booking with full payment for 2 people without breakfast.

We arrived late around 6 or 6.30pm. The hotel building look nice and big with a big garden. The guy reception was friendly and helpful. He gives the key to the room and information about the room. We head straight to the room and the room was clean and quite nice as I was preparing for the worse after reading some of the reviews.

It has everything we need except air condition, however we do not really need air condition in this part of the city as the weather was cold enough. We probably need heater instead. Luckily it was warm enough inside the room and we need to open the window to let the fresh air in.

The room has a balcony facing the lake and mountain which is quite relaxing and good to be out there to see the view. And the hotel has a big garden or lawn with a big Christmas tree on it. Free parking for hotel guests located at the back of the building.

The bathroom is basic but it has a bathtub and free toiletries and paper tissue. Unfortunately the hot water take some times before it becomes hot, but in the end, everything is working well and the water pressure was good. There is a free tea, coffee and hot chocolate in the room, and boiler to boil water. It also has a refrigerator.

There is a pub and two restaurant located at the ground floor of the hotel. Unfortunately the restaurants do not offer any hot meal during my stay as most of the staff was away on the holiday.

The hotel do not provide city map, however the reception gives information where to go to find a restaurants and other thing such as market to buy an insect repellent.

The mattress was comfortable to sleep in and I really like the bright light in the room. The free wifi work well and quite fast. Surprisingly it was very quiet at night time and we do not hear any noise or traffic from the room, despite the bad review about the noise. We sleep quite well at this place and plenty of power plug to charge our phones and camera batteries.

Unfortunately the cleaning lady was knocking the door around 9.00am in the morning which I found quite strange as it was not even the check out time yet.

I found this place is good value for money as the room is spacious and not too far walk to the lake front and plenty of café, restaurants and shops infront of the hotel.
