We stayed here with friends for 6 nights last week. The views and location were great. The size of the communal area and rooms were pretty good- there were 6 of us staying. There were plenty of heaters and electric blankets. Reasonable price. HOWEVER...we had only 6 very small bath towels to share between 6 of us for the whole... More

These are extremely spacious apartments, well laid out and very comfortable indeed. Very clean and well furnished. We stayed mid winter and the apartments are very well heated, plus electric blankets on all beds (which were very comfortable). The views are probably the best I've ever experienced in accommodation. The management are friendly and helpful. Much is made of the... More

This was the first place we stayed in New Zealand & we were completely blown away! It was a quick drive from the airport - the only thing that was unpleasant was the turn to get on the property. It's pretty scary but luckily there wasn't much traffic while we were there. It's ridiculously steep & you can't really see... More

It was the time of year where there are lots of young guys pitching together in accommodation and so when they get drunk and make their way home at 2 am it can wake you up. The accommodation was comfortable although we found information lacking and the reception not always attended. The parking bay is a long way from the... More

The driveway is narrow and dangerouss on steep 45degree incline on icy surfaces .. One annoying thing, is on the way back from city, you have to take a detour on the drive because no right... More

We stayed here over Easter weekend in a 2 bedroom unit with teenage boys. Whilst unit showed some signs ageing and regular tenancy, it was comfortable with plenty of room and lovely lake front views towards Frankton Arm. Even though there was full occupancy in the complex, noise was minimal and beds were comfortable allowing a good night's sleep. There... More

Very welcome to stay in a large well appointed apartment with great views of snow capped mountains. Yes in March. The management could take a little better care to ensure that all facilities are working correctly. A little inconvenient having to call the office for assistance. Apart from that the convenience of a short stroll to town is worth it.... More

Stayed with my wife in Feb 2012 for a week through a timeshare offer. For the amount we paid it represented good value, but felt the apartment was a little tired and it wouldn't have been worth the rack rate. There weren't many units occupied when we were there so access via the steep driveway wasn't too bad - it... More

This motel is right next to the lake so you have a very nice view. Spacious room and bathroom. Everything seemed clean except for the big stain on the top blanket / comforter. The kitchenette is pretty much complete. Quite disappointed though that you have to wash up before you check out or you'll be charged NZD25. Didn't see that... More
