Great quality accomodation, beautifully clean, great beds. Buffet breakfast a highlight. Great pool for the kids. Amazing customer service, friendly helpful staff. Especially Daniel Fisher who seemed to be in charge of the Atrium restaurant, made us feel like we were the only guests there! We will be back!

Loved our stay here, and have no complaints whatsoever. I stayed with 3 of my children who loved the pool, with a hotter pool for me. We stayed on our way to Auckland and booked in again getting the gondola package on the way back from Auckland. The prices were excellent for what we got. It would have been more... More

Had put our 'please make up room' sign (trying to be helpful and it was around the right way) as we were out for the morning and the housekeepers mistook it for 'do not... More
