very expensive; pool and spa pool good, but surfaces need renewing; room large, good linen, bedding, shower in the bath difficult to get into if elderly; cup and saucers of the 'railway' variety, could do with some bone china mugs perhaps, when paying top dollar. Told reception there was a dead and decaying bird outside our front door, other side... More

Clean, modern and all the amenties in the villa to make for a great stay except only 1 TV to my daughters disappointment. Balcony on both floors which we took advantage of into the warm... More

The site is great, though I am not a golfer. The personnel at the reception helpful and friendly. Rooms are large and comfortable. But the restaurant experience was simply ..... ridiculous. Never happened that we were given paper napkins, because they had finished the linen ones; never happened that when we asked for some more bread, we were told that... More

On arrival we were greeted by the front desk attendant who also covers the pro shop. We were directed to our large and spacious room with a great tub and shower. Lots of towels, and beautiful king size bed and a view of the golf course. We rented a golf cart and toured up the a neighboring winery - KariKari... More

Three nights here should have been wonderful - despite some bad weather for which management are not responsible. The property is in an isolated location but provides wonderful views from its elevated location. The hotel rooms are spacious, well appointed and were well serviced. There can be some noise from movement on the outside wooden veranda that runs around the... More

This is a beautiful part of the world and the resort is a very relaxing and charming place to stay. We enjoyed a well appointed lodge room with expansive views over the well manicured golf course and coastal scenery. Planter loungers on the terrace meant we could enjoy the sunny warmth al fresco. Although we did not brave the swimming... More

Stayed and played here - surroundings breathtakingly beautiful and accommodation in the lodges was more than ample and reasonably good value even for 2 people. Dinner in the evening was I'm,agitative and well served by people who must have spent all their days and nights there - talk about multi-tasking! If we had a complain it was that the quality...

We had a recent visit to the beautiful Kari Kari Peninsula in Northland New Zealand. We had booked a 2 night stay at Peppers Carrington Resort. If you are a keen golfer, the course looked beautiful and there were several people playing both days. The accomodation was lovely with huge rooms and very comfortable beds. There was one problem, the... More
