We arrived here about a week before Christmas day. Little did we know it would prove to be our most disappointing stay in any place ever. The room itself was nice with lots of space and a fantastic balcony and with a lovely view. And that´s really the only positive thing we have to say. One of the reasons we... More

It's our first hotel/motel experience in New Zealand and it did not leave us very good impression of New Zealand's service level. If you are just looking for great apartment with good location and view, then this could be the one for you. But for the price we paid for it, I did not think it's worthwhile. On top of... More

On our trip from the UK, we booked to stay in here and in quite upset we could only do one night! The staff on reception were wonderful and very friendly. On reaching our room, I can positively say this was stunning, spotless and had some rather amazing views! The weather was bad but we didn't just want to stay... More

Lovely place in a good area, went to reception and the man was totally irritated by my presence. My sons and I couldn't believe it. The bay of plenty is usually known for its great hospitality and this man lets the place down. No hello, no good bye , no smile, no return from us.

We stayed here one night and the service we got was terrible. They were doing major works on the property due to the fact that it is a leaky building (think ripping out windows and walls). Workmen everywhere and noise beyond belief. What was worse is that there was no advertisement that they were doing major renovations. If we had... More

We stayed for one night in apartment 2F. This is a three bed apartment owned by the managers which they gave to us at the same rate as a one bed because it was all that was left. The generosity and the cheerful assistance that we received was much appreciated. This is a lovely apartment at the back of the... More

.. but then that's about it ! Without sounding too pedantic, whilst the apartments are OK - there was absolutely no WOW factor or 'That little bit extra' that would make me say it was money well spent. I booked via Expedia and when I checked in the Manager (who barely cracked a smile) - tried to charge me. When... More
