We had a second floor apartment with two bedrooms upstairs. Lovely balcony off the sitting room to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and listen to the lap of the waves. Akaroa is a perfect little French Style village in the most scenic surroundings. Could be busy in the pique periods but off season it was fabulous. Lovely places... More

Spent a delightful two night stop at this venue. We were accommodated in a two bedroom unit with living areas on the ground floor and sleeping areas on the upper floor. The view over the harbour is uninterrupted, separated from the water by a small park. The unit was very well equipped and modern, A small patio off the living... More

These apartments are situated right next to the water's edge by the quay at Akaroa. They are duplex style (2 storeys). Our 2 bed unit was beautifully furnished with a small wisteria covered balcony off the sitting room where you could sit and admire the lovely view & watch the boats coming & going. There was a full sized kitchen,... More

Bright and airy apartments in a traditional style of mainly timber construction. The Bruce Waterfront Apartments overlook the bay (Akaroa harbour) in a very pleasant location. The apartment we stayed in had a view towards the lighthouse from the lounge area of the main living space. This was a split level apartment with open plan kitchen, dining and living all... More

Reception was with Tresori Motor Lodge. Reception staff was very helpful and accommodating. Parking easy, big cosy apartment. two bedrooms and bathroom... More

We stayed here last weekend for a lateish wedding anniversary treat. We had a studio suite, upstairs, with the most wonderful views over the harbour. The service was excellent, and the room lovely. Highly recommend for a romantic getaway!!

Great location, room eqipped to sleep,family of 5. Clean. Shower head was super low for 5'5" not 6'1" patrons. Beds are old and mattresses not comfortable. Charged for everything, wifi, use of kayaks, DVDs, $20/hr to extend check out time after 10 am. Found the manager quite off putting. Would not stay here again, not good customer service.
