We were here before and had a problem with our luggage since there were no lifts and so asked another option. The staff was nice enough to give us an alternative. Coming to the room located in peaceful location which have had nice lake, golf course etc. The rooms were really good. Food was not bad either. One of the... More

We selected this stop because of its proximity to the airport since we had a 6:00 AM flight a couple of days later. What a nice surprise. Very nice golf resort with all the amenities on site with acres of walking in a beautiful setting. Our rooms were two story condo's on a man-made lake with a small deck attached... More

Stayed in one of the one-bedroom villas beside the lake. First thing to hit us was the smell of bread cooking when we opened the door followed by a wee 'Wow' factor as it was simply very nice. The bread is a great touch. As it was a lovely day we had wine and bread on the balcony overlooking the... More

Mission accomplished!!!! I was looking for a nice and quiet 3 day weekend get away and yet be close enough to the city and amenities. Clearwater certainly fulfilled. I was fortunate enough to be upgraded to a 1 bedroom Quay Suite and the views were phenomenal. The ground floor room was large with a massive super king bed, ample open... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment (2 business colleagues stayed with us). The room and facilities were terrific as usual. We had a wonderful view over the 13th green and 14th tee across the lake. The dinners are quite good (and they offer room service as well) but I am not big on the breakfast buffet etc. It is... More

We only stayed one night here but found it very peaceful considering you are only a few minutes from the busy city of Christchurch. We were fortunate to have a unit on the top floor, which I recommend you ask for. They are spacious, warm and have two armchairs overlooking a stunning view of the lake and golf course, although...

Held my teams offsite at this resort. The apartment style accommodation worked well. Comfortable with good kitchen facilities. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice touch with a bread maker and home made bread smell greeting you in your room. However a bit odd you then have to pay for your coffee pods! Did have to make one complaint... More

A bit out of the way. We had a car by didn't really find any restaurants nearby so ate in the restaurant on the resort. We had dinner twice and the food was very good. The problem was that we were the only people in there one night and only three tables occupied the other night. It felt a little... More
