We just arrived in Peppers Clearwater resort and weren't expecting much prior to our arrival. At first it the properly looked very nice but unfortunately that is the only thing going for it. Location is terrible since its 20 mins away from the city centre and if you are like me and looking to explore the town then you will... More

Kia ora, Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. It is unfortunate that you feel the location of the resort is in the middle of nowhere as we are only 3km from Northwood Shopping Centre, 7km from Northlands Mall, (one of the largest shopping Malls in Christchurch), 7 km to the Airport and 15km or 15 minutes...

We stayed last minute while on tour of the South Island and received a discount on checkin better than Booking.com or other sites. We stayed in a Quay Suite which was very well appointed and roomy with the room overlooking a large man-made lake complete with ducks! We were taken to dinner and back again by one of the staff...

A pretty nice resort for a family holiday. Beautiful sceneries and quiet surroundings. Golf course and walking trails are just a few steps outside of your rooms. Be prepared to hire a car/van if you do not have your own transport. Public transport is not within walking distance. Nearest shopping centre is 15mins drive away, so stock up on food... More

We have stayed at Clearwater several times and have always enjoed the resort. This time was no exception. We enjoy the quite atmosphere, feeding the ducks and eels and just relaxing on the outside patio. We stayed in a one bedroom suite which is spacious and well equipped. The furnishings are a bit tired, but overall okay. Pricing can be... More

Stayed for 2 nights to watch the NZLadies Open, which was fantastic by the way, we got supposedly the last room available which cost over $200 per night, room only. Peppers need to look seriously at upgrading this particular part of their chain, the rooms are dated and tired. Our room had a broken sink plug, the ottoman had what... More

Located a 10 minute drive from Christchurch airport, the Clearwater resort is a 45 acre spread housing an international golf course which is the home of the New Zealand PGA. Venue for many international golfing events, it was hosting the NZ women's open while we were there. We got to meet Lydia Cho (it is her home course) and that... More

We stayed 2 nights at the resort in a one bedroom apartment overlooking the lake. As other reviewers have said, it was spacious and very comfortable. It was also very well appointed with cooking facilities and a washer/dryer. The unit was looking a little tired and dated and needs a refurb in the not too distant future. Rainwater leaked through...

We were desparate to find a hotel the day of when we were driving from Lake Takepo to Christchurch as we had a 7AM flight out of Christchurch international the next day. We inquired about hotels at an information booth and we were sadly informed that all hotels in Christchurch were full. I then snuck away with my iPhone and... More

Peppers Clearwater certainly knows how to look after their guests. Our two-level waterfront suite was furnished to a very high standard and oodles of accommodation space, including a separate cloakroom, study area, walk-in dressing room, enormous bathroom and balconies to both lounge and bedroom overlooking the lake/golf course.. The kitchen area also very good with dishwasher, fridge, gas hob and... More
