We stayed in a delightful three bedroom apartment with everything you could ask for in it. The two main bedrooms featured king size beds and ensuites. A large dining room and lounge room with splendid views over the lakes and golf course. The Resort Dining Room has a great menu and the food was excellent. The Resort itself is on... More

We were extremely disappointed by our room, The furnishings were of good quality, but minimal - only one chair in our double room; very difficult to get to the wardrobe; exactly two cups (most hotels provide at least three or four, in a double room). We had a 'special' rate, and were very pleased - the rack rate would have... More

I stayed here for one night as part of a Grab One promotion. The room/chalet was amazing and spotlessly clean with great views. I had a meal at their restaurant but my steak was over cooked (how hard is it to cook a rare steak 😯) but very well presented and the staff were lovely. I was given vouchers for... More

We stayed at Clearwater for three nights, enjoyed the divine food at the restaurant every evening (why go anywhere else) and my husband was so impressed with the golf course. Ken the GM was sensational as were the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Bed was perfect and bathroom simply gorgeous, make sure you have a bath in the large... More

We only stayed for one night and would like to return. We had an apartment overlooking the lake. It was 2 storied with a large lounge and kitchen downstairs opening out onto a deck. The bread maker as previously mentioned was on when we arrived and it made great bread which we had for breakfast the next morning. The upstairs... More

I have stayed at Clearwater Resort (CR) on two previous occasions and would stay again when I next visit Christchurch. This stay at CR was 5/6 nights. CR is hard to beat for a place to stay in Christchurch and particularly if you are booked on one of the early morning international flights to Australia. The setting of the CR... More

Kia ora George, Thank you for taking the time to submit your review and comments. Please accept our apology for the bread not baking correctly.

This was the second time we have stayed at Clearwater, the first time was brilliant - even with torrential rain/flooding and power cut at the end of the night the staff were amazing & professional, so we wanted to go back and experience the resort in the summer, We stayed at the end of a lovely long weekend, and I...

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
