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

We stayed here on both the start and end of our New Zealand south island tour. Slightly strange as it’s really a golf club first and then secondly the hotel aspect is slightly unconventional with our room being in a town house style, but we loved it. The room was clean, decorated to a high modern standard with a large... More

This is an out-of-town country club and resort around 7km from Christchurch City Centre and about a 10-minute drive from the airport. There are no rooms in the main building of the resort with all rooms around a 5 minute walk away The rooms are comfortable with good levels of equipment and facilities. If you're a business user, limited Internet... More
