Despite an initial mix up over our booking, we found this to be one of the best places we had stayed on our trip around NZ. Dion met us on our late arrival and was charming and helpful, even offering to assist in carrying our bags. The apartment was outstanding and equipped with everything, and I mean everything, that a... More

There were four of us and we had a two bedroom apartment located on the ground floor adjacent to the undercroft garage. We nicknamed this the "Hobbits Hangout" as anyone taller than 177cm needed to duck under the doorways. There was no kitchen sink which made it a little difficult however the bathroom and lounge area were ok. It was... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights in Feb., 2015. We had an upstairs unit which gave us the necessary facilities and a pleasant view though air conditioning unit a bit noisy. We enjoyed our swim in the pool, very cooling as the weather was quite warm. Easy to find with its signposting. Helpful staff. We would not hesitate... More

We've stayed here a couple of times, and it really is fantastic. Just about everything is great....clean, tidy, immaculate gardens and BBQ area, pool, beds, luxurious rooms, fully kitted communal kitchen, pool room, TV lounge. The only down side is the tiny showers. Thanks to Ann and Dion, keep it up.

I'm surprised by the positive reviews. Here's what we found: Facilities not clean as they could be (especially by NZ standards) Must share bath facilities ( not clear on website) BLACK sheets on the bed?! Flimsy lock on the door Tiny shower Very dated decor (plastic flowers, plastic beaded chandelier etc)

It is always dissappointing to note we have failed to meet our guests expectations. We have multiple levels of accommodation - from the lodge rooms that you experienced at the low end of the pricing structure - to fully selfcontained corporate suites. Certainly, had you shared your dissappointment with us, we would have made every effort to show you alternatives... More

A lodge means shared facilities! We didn't understand this so had not anticipated sharing bathroom facilities with other guests. Perhaps the web site could be clearer about this for overseas guests with differing terminology. The shower cubicles are very small, basins are communal. Our room had one hook on the back of the door so wet towels were a problem.... More

It is dissappointing to note that the shared lodge facilities did not meet your expectations. We have a range of accommodation options available, from the budget conscious 5 star shared facility to fully self contained suites. It would seem that it may have been a better option for you to upgrade to a self contained option, and this option would... More
