  • Everyone at Skotel was friendly and helpful. The solitude and beauty of the area were as we had hoped. Dinner at the hotel was fair in quality and quite overpriced. I would stay there again because of the unique location. 4

  • Hi Jarrett, Thank you for your comments. In regards to the pricing of the meals we are unable to reduce these much lower due to food costs and the extra we pay due to our location. I am pleased you were impressed with our mountains and I look forward to hosting you again. Regards Wayne Sheard General Manager.

  • We stayed in a backpackers room for a midweek getaway. I was completely surprised by the sheer friendliness of the staff. The views were unprecedented, and the room was the best backpackers room i have stayed in. The facilities were great, but the bathrooms were really nice. Very close to the ski areas. Restaurant was nice as well. Again, thanks to the staff who really made the stay an unforgettable week. Shame to every other hotel or motel who does not follow the way the skotel hotel runs. Will absolutely come back as soon as i can. I recommend this place to every tourist coming to new zealand. :-) . 5

  • The rooms we booked were nice, but the double bed were too soft. Otherwise we had great time, thank you. 5
    CHONGQUAN YANG - Jul 21, 2013 (Stayed Jul 2013) Travelbug verified review
  • Hello Mr Yang, Thank you for your comments. We get mixed comments on the beds as some love them soft and others hard. Like most hotels we do have bed boards we can put under the mattress to make it firmer. In future bring anything like this to the attention of the reception and we can see if we can move you or remedy the issue. Once again, thank you for your comments and I look forward to possibly hosting you in the future. Regards Wayne Sheard General Manager.
