  • 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
