Worst service I have ever encountered in New Zealand, delay in getting service is totally unacceptable. Food when it arrived was good but 50 minutes to get bacon and eggs is a joke. Avoid like the plague.

We planned on going somewhere else that wasn't open yet so we wandered down to Reflections. My partner had the mushroom duo which he loved and I had French toast which was delicious. Not too expensive either and staff were super friendly. Awesome view too. Will be back next time!

Lovely lakeside situation, very attentive staff, great coffee and cakes and free wi-fi. The meals we saw being served up looked delicious, just a shame we were already booked in elsewhere.

We were staying across the road at the Peppers resort which charges NZ$20 per day for wi-fi and saw some tourists using FaceTime so we popped in. What a great decision! Staff service and greeting was fantastic on the 2 occasions we visited for breakfast both of which were delicious meals, try the bacon eggs benedict, lovely. Also managed to... More

We met Kim the owner opening up at 7.00am. Service was awesome and went way beyond what you could expect including taking photos of us in front of the stunning sunrise.Thanks Kim and I will forgive you for calling us Aussies just this once and look forward to bringing the kids with us next time.
