Great views across the lake

Great views across the lake. Big unit. Had everything we needed even a dishwasher. We didn't use the hotel bar or restaurant but it was great to know the option was there if we didn't feel like cooking. One of the better set-ups we experienced on our South Island driving holiday. We would stay again.

Awesome place to stay when visiting Lake Brunner

The staff were very helpful and they provided an excellent service. We ordered out meal which was delivered to our room at the time requested, a very lovely meal. The room was clean and comfortable with all that we required for our stay. Ill be very happy to return. Thank you Hotel Lake Brunner.

Your hub for staying in Lake Brunner

Comfortable and cosy room in the heart of lake Brunner. The pub and restaurant which is only metres always provides frosty brews and delicious meals. A must stay for anyone passing by!

No rain but shower was perfect

The shower would be the best we have ever used in 50 years of motels. Such soft water and plenty of pressure. would go back just to use it Great view over the lake. Layout nice. Bar and restaurant was so close, nice staff friendly and informative. Booked a trip on a sightseeing boat while in the bar. who said booze and business don't mix.? Had a coffee in the station house cafe. next time stay longer and have a meal there as well.

A lovely setting

This room was all about the view. The end of the room facing the lake was all glass and so it was like a massive T.V. screen with the lake-cam on all the time. Brilliant.

Amazing views

Lots of amazing walks on your doorstep, lake is great for fishing and water sports, Greymouth, Hokitika, and Arthurs Pass are all close

Lovely view of the lake and mountain from our room. Very comfortable beds with lots of space in our room, great location just a short stroll to the edge of the lake and two great restaurants less that 5 minutes walk

Great apartment with amazing views

It was quite a pleasant surprise to come across this hotel. I wish I had a couple of extra days there. The hotel bar and restaurant were really buzzing. A great little place to stay for more than just one night. Highly recommend it.
