    I really enjoyed this hotel, the view of the mountains was beautiful and the reception desk was really friendly and helpful. It is located on the main road and close to the hot pools and some amazing restaurants.

    Day 74 - Tues. 10th. Feb.

    Our final two days in New Zealand South Island took us north from Queenstown first to the small hamlet of Franz Joseph, built up entirely to support viewing of the glacier nearby. We then continued northwards to Greymouth from where we took the TranzAlpine train across the Southern Alps back to Christchurch. The scenery throughout was exceptional …

    In terms of enjoyment, I guess it's not difficult for this day to beat the previous ones, but it's been the best day yet by a landslide. We felt like luck was back on our side. We both had a restful 10+ hours of sleep in a real bed and kicked the day off with a nice breakfast buffet at the hotel. Little did we know that the clear skies and …

We had 3 hours to kill in Auckland so we decided to see if out United card would work on the air New Zealand lounge (great idea Amy!) Lucky for us- it did!!! And it was the most amazing lounge we have ever …
