We booked a Queen room, but arrived late (8.30 p.m) and as we were the last people to arrive we were upgraded into an apartment that is normally $300+ - we paid $119 - cheaper than a cheap motel. The lounge would seat 14 people. We had a huge downstairs kitchen/dining/seating; one bedroom; bathroom with shower and bath; upstairs had... More

Heading to Taupo for a family reunion, and booked to stay 1 month in advance. Drove 5 hours on the day to arrive, and the manager say he has no record of my booking, and they were full, even though I had a confirmation from them. Funnily enough they had taken my money pretty quickly!

Booked this on basis of description on web site. Was not expecting to be in part of an upmarket townhouse in a residential subdivision. Took two turns around the block to eventually find the place. Could not recognize it from the website photos and the sign is small. Still wasn't sure I was at the right place till the proprietor... More

We stayed here for 4 nights while on holiday in taupo. On arrival it wasn't what we had expected and no signs about how to check in, however a man quickly appeared to explain it all to us. We were upgraded from a queen room to a 1 bed room apartment which was very nice. The room was very clean,... More

Then to receive an email @ 1am in the morning saying I will be charged $150 extra!!! It's like none... More

We booked accomodation here over 4 weeks in advance. We travelled up from Wellington and turned up at around 7.00pm on a Saturday night hoping to get to see the All Blacks play Australia that night. Arriving at the complex we were very confused as to where to check in or pick up a key. Only a very small sign... More

We booked three nights during the week. From the time we checked in to checkout we didn't see any other person. No owner or anything. It's was very strange. When we arrived there was no one to greet us or check us in, we tried calling the number on our booking, but no one answered the few times we tried.... More

So we tried to check in at our estimated arrival time only to find the place locked and a sign saying it would re-open 2.5 hours later after cleaning, fair enough. Luckily on this account and also another not yet mentioned, that we actually LIVE in the same town and where staying here for our wedding anniversary. So back at... More

This is the strangest place we have stayed of our extensive NZ tour. We booked through booking.com as it appeared to be a very reasonable price. then I read reviews and began to wonder if I had done the right thing. We needed just a place to rest our heads en route to whakatane so we went with it. We... More
