We stayed here few years ago and we had a very enjoyable holiday. The location is great next to the beach, we had amazing view from our room. The room was very spacious and very clean. I would recommend this place.

Managed to get the last two bedroom apartment here at the very last minute over Christmas and we were not disappointed! Very spacious! Fully stocked kitchen and plenty of space to entertain visiting friends to barbecue dinner! The TV was having a bit of trouble with one channel but other than that, we had a wonderful stay here.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in December. It was perfect! close walk to the restaurants and shops, right across the street from the beach access, great views and very friendly hosts. We hope to return again in February and could have easily spent a few more nights.

I stayed at Belle Mer with my sister and two of my sister-in-laws for our annual NZ get together and we'd had the Apartment booked for February but due to unforseen circumstances couldn't make it, so Mike kept our booking payment for a stay later in the year (September). Our 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom Apartment looked straight out to... More

I stayed here in early July 2013 with my family for just under 2 weeks. We needed to visit the Mount to attend a wedding and so made a holiday of it. Friends of ours had stayed here before and recommended the place to us and we were not disappointed! The building is located right on the beachfront within short... More

My name is Mark de Lacy aka The Minstrel. Google these names to verify my reputation. I spend a minimum 120 nights a year in apartment accom through NZ every year. This has been my worst experience ever and first time I have complained. I booked six nights at Belle Mer for my wife and I, her mother and sister... More

Just had a beautiful long weekend at the Mt. Have stayed at Belle Mer a number of times, but this was our first time in the penthouse apartment. This is a beautiful apartment. Wrap around decks and beautifully furnished. Everything you would ever need in the kitchen - glasses, serving dishes, kitchen utensils (we like to cook in). Lovely sheets... More

We had a great mid winter break here. Clean, with everything we needed. Heaters kept the place warm. The staff were really lovely. Maybe when booking your room ask what the position of your apartment will be. We were at the back and had no view or sun but that didn't really matter to us as we were out enjoying... More

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We were shifted to a bigger apartment than we needed because of work being done upstairs. The drilling was noisy but even worse was the noise from outside the front of the apartments. We were also asked to pay more for the king bedroom and bathroom which otherwise would have stayed locked and we'd have had no en suite bathroom.... More

Mike Anne G, Manager at Belle Mer Apartments, responded to this review

We appreciate the honest review and accept that this was an unfortunate instance. To explain ... one of our apartments was having new bathrooms fitted/ redecoration, and there was a lack of communication from the builders concerned as to when the "noisy" work would be happening. We were not expecting this particularly 'noisy' part of the job to be carried... More

This place is like a home away from home, accept better because your at the Mount. We stayed 3 nights in a 2 bed unit on the first floor in May 2013, the unit was spacious, more than we expected, it had everything you needed in the kitchen and even had a washing machine and dryer (including washing powder).
