An amazing hotel in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Friendly staff, great rooms at a cracking price. Head downstairs for a steak for dinner, it is a terrific feed..! The bar is great too. Thanks for an amazing stay... :-)

The hotel was closed however the old hotel over the road is being used as a Heartland. It was great with really good service and awesome room for price paid. Just a word of causation that the entire town is on bottled water, at no fault of businesses

Tiny room, aging decor, disinterested staff, no breakfast, no checkin/checkout staff.. Maybe it was the after effects of covid but this place had an air of desperation, mutton dressed up as lamb. Definitely a place to avoid.

Kia Ora Appleberries Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your stay. Please let me address some of the concern you have mentioned. check in staff - this is run with the staff via the bar with a sign at reception advising this but also a note letting you know you can dial 0 and we are happy to pop out and check you in from the reception desk. Check out staff - we are always around we are sometimes not in the office as we are out and about housekeeping as well as running the front desk - all you need to do is dial 0 from the reception phone and we would of been more than happy to pop downstairs to check you out. Unfortunately we are currently not offering breakfast which is mentioned on our website at time of booking and also advised on check in, if breakfast was something you really wanted you could of talked to us and we would of been more than happy to try to accommodate your request. As you will see from all our previous comments our guests have all enjoyed their stay with us and we are sorry that we missed the mark with you Kind Regards Louise Hollis Hotel Manager

We stayed at the Heartland hotel and the service was excellent, the breakfast lovely and very large! Bed was so comfy, old fashioned bath in our room as well which was great. Loved our stay in a hotel steeped in history.

A lovely quaint hotel ideally suited to explore Fox Glacier or just as a stop over on the way down the West Coast. Fantastic staff and service and the food was good too. Such a beautiful stay! The rooms were very roomy, clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!

This is the old historical hotel suffering from covid which is a shame. At the time they had just 5 staff trying to keep the hotel alive when so much of the country has given up. They did a wonderful job. The meals were very good especially the breakfast cooked by the barman, waiter, maintenance man and most everything else. Well done

We had a comfy king bed which was great and a lovely big bathroom. Easy chair squeezed into the main room which was handy. Double doors opened onto a common terrace but with not many in the hotel was nice to sit out in the lovely old balcony and look at the view. The meal in the restaurant was awesome and definitely recommend.

A heritage building but the room was fine: clean, comfortable and everything worked. Food was substantial and breakfast was well thought out. All staff were very obliging. Tips for side trip paid off: saw 3 Hector's dolphins and found gold in the first pan!

The room was clean and spacious with a huge bathroom and better still with a bath. But, the best thing about the place was the very obliging manager, David. He very kindly gave me a quiet room. The rural view was also pleasant.
