YOUR PICTURE NEEDS TO BE UPDATED AS IT IS OF THE OLD THOMAS' HOTEL AND YOUR REVIEW WOULD APPEAR TO BE OF THE SAME TIME. LAST RVIEW POSTED WAS FEB 2005. SO WHILST YOU'VE GOT THE NAME RIGHT ALL OF YOUR MATERIAL AND RATINGS ARE DATED AND PROBABLY NOT HELPING THIS VERY NEW ESTABLISHMENT WHO ARE TRYING VERY HARD TO PUT THE PREVIOUS REPUTATION BEHIND THEM. AVA OR ABSOLOOT VALUE ACCOMMODATION HAS BEEN FULLY RENOVATED WITH THE INCLUSION OF HEAT PUMPS, SECONDARY GLAZING AND PLANTATION SHUTTERS ALL DONE WITH A VIEW OF KEEPING EXTERNAL NOISE OUT AND ALLOWING THE CONTROL OF ENERGY, HEATING AND LIGHT IN. THE LITTLE THINGS LIKE QUALITY LOO PAPER, FREE HAIR AND BODY WASH IN EACH ENSUITE AND ALL ROOMS ARE EN SUITED. GOOD SIZED FRIDGES IN THE ROOMS AS WELL AS PLENTY OF POWER POINTS FOR RECHARGING BATTERIES ETC. ALL LINEN AND TOWELS ARE INCLUDED AND ARE OF VERY GOOD QUALITY. THE KEYLESS ENTRY DOORS ARE GREAT AND IT BEATS TRYING TO GET A KEY IN THE LOCK IN THE WEE HOURS. MAKES A LOT LESS NOISE TOO AND THAT'S WELCOME BY OTHER GUESTS. THE SAME KEY GETS YOU INTO THE SKI/BOARD DRYING ROOM SO YOU FEEL CONFIDENT YOU GEAR WON'T GO WALKING DURING THE NIGHT. I COULD GO ON FOREVER ABOUT THE FACILITIES SO JUST ALLOW ME TO SAY THEY TICK ALL THE BOXES AND THEN SOME. BUT IT'S THE PEOPLE TO ME WHO WERE THE STANDOUTS. YOU DON'T FIND MANY OWNER/OPERATORS IN HOSTELS OF THIS SIZE (112 BEDS) BUT THE PEOPLE HERE ARE THE OWNERS AND YOU WOULDN'T MEET NICER MORE HELPFULL GUYS AND GIRLS. NO NAMES SO YOU'LL HAVE TO GO AND MEET THEM YOURSELVES. BELIEVE ME IT IS WORTH THE TRIP. AVA ROCKS! :)

We stayed at Thomas' in January 2005. The view was great. The room was tired. The cold air return in the bathroom looked as though it was last cleaned in 1935. One of the women working on the front desk was so surly that she was a bit scary. I emphatically would not stay here again. I think one can do quite a bit better for the money in QT.

thomas' was quite nice. all rooms have bathrooms. it is very centrally located. the cat is cute and really does hang out in the lobby. staff was helpful. parking was a little bit of a nightmare. we had to park about 5 blocks away. if you can, do the queenstown combo and the parapunting. absolutely amazing!
