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
Bar staff were friendly and helpful. Thanks for the free breakfast in my room .
Nothing I didn't like . Chateau was very quiet but I think it would be a fun place to stay in the season.
Staff is very kind and friendly. The facility was clean, the heated pool had an interesting design and atmosphere. The food in both restaurants was delicious.
A bit noisy due to the wooden structure.( I could hear the next door person's coughing spams in the morning.)
