A wonderful couple of nights spent in lovely surroundings. Apartments are extremely comfortable and with plenty of room. The weather was beautiful so was lovely sitting with the doors open onto the balcony and enjoying the view, even if it was over the beautiful gardens of the Heritage! The beds are super comfortable and it was very peaceful.

We had to come back, couldn't resist after a wonderful stay in February we returned to enjoy the beautifully appointed luxurious apartment once again. The beds are so comfortable and the location is perfect, just walk to town. The owners are so helpful and nothing is a problem, great hosts. Never stayed anywhere better in NZ.

The whole family stayed: Gorgeous Girlfriend and me, her boys and her parents. The apartment was exceptionally spacious and particularly well appointed. Pretty views over the lakeside gave a very relaxing atmosphere. Quality bed linens, made for a superb nights sleep. And the owners do a courtesy towel loan for those who are visiting the nearby springs. Top notch.

Well equiped kitchen and all very tastefully decorated this has to be one of the better apartments we stayed in during out south island tour. The only minor critism was the noisey toilet fan. Beds were excellent. A great stay.... More

The apartments here have everything you could possibly need during your stay. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is more than enough info provided on local restaurants and activities. The location is a short 2 minute walk to the main shops but still manages to maintain a sense of quietness in the surroundings. The bed here was probably the... More

Overall This is a very nice apartment suitable for couples or a family group. Nice decor, great views, very handy to the pools. Book swap at reception a friendly touch. All the kitchen and laundry equipment you could need. Gas fire and double glazing ensured a warm stay. Unfortunately a few things let them down. The bathroom sink was broken,... More
