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:   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.

Review:   I was there to pay for petrol from a self-service kiosk attached to their hotel. The staff at the front desk provided good service, but the waiting time for the porter (who holds on to the credit card for payment at the kiosk) was a little long. Otherwise, I don't have much to comment, except the general cleanliness of the lobby which was pretty good.

Review:   Beautiful view, assuming the sky is clear. Room we had was a little small but fine for our purposes. There's a restaurant with a breakfast buffet that has Western and Asian food that was fairly decent considering it's a buffet. Overall a good stay.

Review:   We didn’t stay here but stopped in for buffet breakfast while waiting for a scenic flight. For $30 pp for full breakfast was a good deal. Cooked food and continental selections, toast, smoothies etc all brilliant! One of the best cafe views around too!

Review:   Stayed a night on the 10th floor (premium plus). Room was well furnished and had a good view but it was not worth the price at all (NZ$398). Had the buffet dinner for NZ$63 per head. The meats were decent but all the shellfish was not fresh. It was not worth the price either. Late checkout was only until 10:30am, any later will require additional charges. Overall a very disappointing stay. Not recommended.
