About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   :: Love the scenic view and the nature! :: This is one of my most favorite hotels where I'll be back again if opportunity permits. This is the only hotel in Aoraki Mount Cook National Park. I stayed on the high floor where the view of Mt Cook is magnificent and breathtaking after I entered the room. There was a portable binoculars in the room where you can use it to view the mountain up close. The windows were huge and the atmosphere was very quiet so you could relax and be with the nature.

Review:   We stayed here recently (Family of 4 with 2 kids). Reception staff, hotel room, view from hotel room was just awesome. We should have stayed here for 2 nights. We just walked a bit to see night sky full of millions of stars. Disadvantages: There is no covered parking, you have to park your vehicle in open. Our car was kind of frozen in morning ha ha ha. Thanks to the reception guy who provided me an ice scrapper to clean windshields. Nearby is hooker valley trek. So beautiful.

Review:   The whole place had limited amenities. No cafe. No bar. No dinning. No Ed Hillary centre for the kids to visit. They were all under construction. What was more disappointing was that they opened it up for some bus loads of tourists, but not for anyone else. We also had to go down to the pub down the road for meals as no in room dinning was available. Would just stay at the pub next time as they have rooms as well.

Review:   Came by for the a la carte dinner at the Panorama Room. During my time here, the actual restaurant for Panorama Room was closed and instead was served at the cafe, along with the menus of their other restaurants. The food was good, but far from something to rave about. The lamb and salmon was well cooked. I didn't care too much for what accompanied the meats. The service here was incredibly slow, a 2 course dinner took over 1.5 hours, of which our table was empty for about an hour. It was also pretty pricey too--NZ$140 for 2 persons, I understand you pay premium for food when you're this remote, which is why we decided to try something nice, but it just wasn't worth it.
