Traveling In March with my mum we were told by family and friends we wouldn't need to book in advance... As we drove into town all we saw were no vacancy signs! The girls on the front desk were extremely friendly and helpful even offering us to look at the rooms before booking. I've never had a hotel offer this.... More

At $99 a night for a double room this was worth checking out. Reception was excellent, the room was as advertised, that is recently refurbished , bright and airy. Good sized bathroom with large shower. Tea and coffee making in the room. The 42 inch TV made the afternoon sport easy to watch. The only downside was the noisy fan... More

We stayed here just for a night. Room was very big, HUGE TV on the wall ( was a hit with the other half ), very clean and beds where comfortable :) free wifi was good! Only negative point was that you needed to drive into the town to the bars and restaurants... Walked in and it took 35mins. Would... More

We stayed on two occasions recently. Arriving late both evenings the receptionist put the heater on so we arrived to a lovely warm room. Bathrooms recently renovated in both rooms we had. The tariff represented good value. Free WiFi was appreciated. Units were quiet and we will certainly return. We did not make it to the restaurant for breakfast so... More

Lakeland is a solid performer. The rooms are large, well heated with large flat screen TVs. The spa baths are a great bonus - especially in winter months. The beds aren't the most comfortable and the shower pressure isn't great - but I've had much worse in better places and I managed a good nights sleep. The staff are excellent... More

I needed a late check-in and the staff were very accommodating and friendly, and I felt totally welcome on arrival. The rooms themselves are clean & tidy, but are not particularly noteworthy in terms of style. The shower was fantastic. I would stay here again.

We stayed here overnight while on a one-month tour of New Zealand. It was a busy hotel and we felt kinda lost in all of it. Not quite in city center but still nice views of the lake. The room was clean, there was a refrigerator, ironing board, the bed was comfortable, it was quiet. What more could we ask... More

we had our room serviced but i think the room service staff forgot to vacuum the carpet as the floor was visibly dirty. Friendly staff and location is good as it is near the town centre. We were at room 133 and the wifi was useless as the signal drops every time. They need to have a new access point... More

We had a pretty nice stay at Lakeland Resort. There was a musty smell in the room and the bathroom was recently renovated. Three beds, refrigerator and free wifi in the room and a pool and tennis court at the premises. If you want to go to the city center a car is preferable. Altogether a decent hotel.

Our apologies if the room smelt odd, we have been full most days so each room has been used regularly so shouldn't be showing signs of mustiness. We will certainly check that out. Thanks for your lovely review, much appreciated. More
