Great views, good staff, but poorly maintained accommodation. Although relatively modern, and with a good golf course, this place, like others in the peppers chain, suffers from neglect and lack of maintenance. Rotten eaves on lakeside units give birds great nesting sites, just above balconies and outdoor furniture. Whilst some may appreciate raw nature, most travelers probably prefer their seats,... More

We have stayed at Peppers Clearwater twice now (Quay room both times I think) and have been impressed with the resort setting that is close to the city. I wouldn't say that service level is outstanding but it was adequate, and we also dined at their restaurant on both visits (dinner and breakfast were both very nice) Not a golfer... More

Booked a lakeside villa for my terminally ill partner's birthday. Cost us $600, we couldn't get car in gge because full of tatty old furniture. Couldn't open French doors. Furnishings were all stained and cleaning absent (Don't touch the stairwell handrail-your hand will stick to it). Tiles in master bathroom cracked, lifting and dangerous -I hurt myself.(Yes, I know about... More

It was only a one day stay before we leave NZ for home. But oh what an impressive place! We were booked into the three room lakeside villas. It was its own garage and comes with a beautiful view of the lake that reaches out to almost the steps of the villa. All the usual mod cons. We even found... More

Perhaps it's not a fair thing for me to say as the noise was due to construction and expansion of the complex, however it was my overriding memory and spoilt my stay at the Peppers Clearwater Resort. The bar area was very pleasant and the bar staff incredibly accommodating and allowed us to take over the television and choose what... More

Stayed here for 5 weeks on a business trip. We had a nice suite over looking the lake and golf course. The views, especially the sunsets were outstanding. It was winter and the heater on the bottom level was not up to the cold temperatures. They have been updating heaters in some units so you might want to watch for... More
