We stayed in the Ruapehu wing, and the shabby room looked like it hadn't been updated since the 50s, but I guess that's in character/keeping with the rest of the hotel. Apart from many of the facilities not working, such as the lift, spa, pool, etc, the awful saggy beds were the worst I have ever been subjected to in a lifetime of travelling, including a year of budget backpacking around Europe and Asia. I didn't sleep a wink the whole weekend, even after skiing all day. It's an amazing building in an amazing location, and could be... amazing, but it's just not due to the level of disrepair. Not worth the money as a consequence.
