Score from 384 reviews Good
Good location with helpful staff.
Breakfast average and expensive. Asked for an omelette and advised we don't do omelettes. Its breakfast ??
Cosy feel of the bedroom and having a good restaurant on site. Staff were friendly and approachable.
The swimming pool area is dark and could do with upgrading.
Great atmosphere, comfortable beds, well equipped rooms and beautiful hot pool!!
Unfortunately we had ants in our room. The reception was very apologetic and provided a free breakfast for us. Hope they get them under control because if would be a shame to ruin a fabulous establishment!
Friendly staff, great hotel
A great bath, bathroom, excellent towels . friendly staff . We liked that we had lots of storage room. We ate in the dinning room for the 3 nights of our stay. Meals good value and great service.
We did wake up when our next door room mate had a bath late at night and very early in the morning.! This only happened on our last night.
- The bar/restaurant had a lovely après-ski feel and was a great place to hang out after a day on the slopes. - Food was excellent throughout, except disappointingly on the last night one of the steaks had to be sent back twice. - Very relaxed feel around the place. - Ski rental right next to the hotel, with 20% discount, was very handy.
- Very limited choice for breakfast (which was included), had to choose from a few items from the standard menu every morning. Portions huge though. - Be aware that there will be noise from TV and people in the rooms next to yours, this was recognised by the hotel in their welcome letter/rules and the request was made to consider the other guests. However, some noise cannot be helped and that was a bit of a nuisance.
Drinks on the deck in the sun after a full day skiing
The food and beverage is prity bad. Get a room on the top floor as the timber floor boards squeak. The coffee need improvement
Drinking in the heated pool and the rooms ✌️
Loud banging from people running around in the mansion room , just cause they are richer doesn't mean they shouldn't show respect for others staying there
Friendly, helpfull staff, beautiful building, Warm & comforting!
I wasnt aware that my 3 year old wasnt allowed in the indoor pool, no under 5s. The pool was a big reason why we chose The Powderhorn. Food very average and no healthy options for a late lunch. Service was a bit slow in the restaurant, maybe they were just a bit short staffed that day?
Had every thing you would want, pool, bar, restaurants and nice service. Great location for going up to the mountain and more eating establishments close by. Food very nice and good portions.
The noise was terrible, no sound proofing at all, or very little. We had no respite while in our room from the noise above and below. We could hear conversations and bathroom actions as clear as a bell. Kids very noisy with their excited voices, kids will be kids thou. The lovely staff are aware of the problem and say that's what you get with a wooden building. Still, I think it was not acceptable and they need to spend some money on the problem. I believe they offer ear plugs, that just about sums it up.
A nice place to stay, always enjoy the indoor hot pool, and the Powderkeg, food etc.
We stayed on a Sunday night and there wasn't many people around, so I felt that $220 was a bit expensive compared to what you might get for that money in one of the main centres (which should theoretically be more expensive). Basically I left with the feeling that we had paid too much.
Found the premises were not user friendly - parking not handy - a long way to lump your bag. Room while very comfortable was also very dark and gloomy.
Lovely place! Everything is done in wood which I found a bit overwhelming but they are going for mountain resort charm. The room is lovely. Has a little fridge, makings for coffee, tea etc. Very nice bathroom. Comfy bed. Overall, we enjoyed our one night stay at Powderhorn Chateau.
The hallways are a bit scary between the smell of laquer on the wood and the very very dim lighting. Our eyes are not so good these days and we could barely make our way down the hall! We had dinner in the Chateau's Matterhorn restaurant. Service and ambiance excellent but unfortunately the food (at least what we ordered) wasn't that great compared to other places we've dined in New Zealand.
The evening meal was first class, this is the second time we have stayed there in the last month and both times, the menu was great.
Having to leave!!
The staff were very friendly. The room was comfortable.
Friendly, helpful staff who made local bookings for us; lovely terrace on room with outlook over river and trees; comfortable and cosy room with great bath. Will be back!
Helpful staff. Laundry facilities Decent meal Lovely environment with an excellent walk just metres away. Easy driving access to alpine country.
Chaotic bar service Inadequate internet Avoid the pizzas
Staff in all areas were excellent from reception to the restaurant to housekeeping. Very very friendly and welcoming. Rooms were clean and well presented. The food at the hotel restaurant where we ate for 3 nights was consistently top quality and they catered for vegetarians and Gluten Free. Over three nights the 5 of us tried most of the menu and we were all full of praise for each meal.Overall we were all very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Powderhorn and will stay there again - and recommend to others
There was nothing we didn't like but as a suggestion it might be better to have a plug in kettles to keep the water hot for breakfast rather than the thermos jugs which weren't always boiling hot
Wonderful wooden accommodation Great restuarant Wonderful staff
