    overall, great location and easy walk to town centre. Nice views. Restaurant and bar facilities nice. Bedding was synthetic and unpleasant to sleep in, and the shower was possibly the worst I've experienced in NZ.

    The Rutherford is very central. Walking distance to town and close to lots of cafes and restaurants. We enjoyed the bells from the Cathedral on Sunday morning. Beds are comfortable but we didn't like the bathroom vanity. The sink doesn't drain properly. Very quiet stay but enjoyable
