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:   The room are clean and comfortable bed. Amazing views from the room. The hotel has tour activities to Mount Cook and vicinity area. Just need to book in advance. Good place to rest and relax in this place. Pricey hotel rate although.

Review:   Dinner for 2 at the Panorma Room with beautiful views of Mount Cook. Service from the point of view of an American guest was the best we had in NZ. Most restaurants were hands off at the Panorama Room my water glass never emptied. Portion sizes were not large but I left satisfied with my meal. Medium rare lamb seemed to be cooked medium. Over a great experience.

Review:   Views were fantastic. Room extremely old and dated, was surprised at the quality considering how much we paid for a superior room. Water pressure was bad, amenities too basic. food was okay, but not value for money at all. Oh, and expect to pay for wifi!!! The cheaper option Lodge is extremely close by and I reckon you wouldn't trade off too much in terms of comfort if you stay there instead. Views are almost the same from both accommodations Would recommend friends to skip staying at the hermitage, and take the trails for the views instead.

Review:   Views are spectacular, however this is obviously what you are paying for because the rooms are extremely average. Haven't had to pay for wifi in about 10 years but the hotel does have a surcharge! The walls were paper thin and you can hear people in the next room going to the toilet. Our room was clean but there were some dubious stains and dried fluids on the wall. I would say this place feels more like a motel than a hotel. Unfortunately this place will still do well as you don't have many options in the area. Hopefully the management will bring this dinosaur into the 21st century soon as other hotels in NZ are amazing for a similar price.

Review:   Very remote hotel with fantastic scenery. Rooms were nice, and wifi was pretty fast. Reasons why it didn't get five stars: 1) There is no gym here. 2) Some of the stuff in the hotel is a little dated. Locks on the doors and shower heads come to mind. 3) The food was okay, but it wasn't fantastic. I would recommend this place to friends and family.
