“Just ok..only upside was the SPA”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

It is what it is. Minor things but still - small as in "pokey" sky tv was fuzzy, forgot to put milk in (even when she asked if I wanted milk in the room?), pool was dirty and cold (she did say it was solar heated so obviously they hadnt had sun).

Just a little run down is all. It is nice if your not looking for much but I think in the price, a little more luxury wouldnt go amiss. Service is good though, helpful and location is good too. the photos were abit deceiving on the website.

Glad you enjoyed the new Spa/Sauna Room. The pool not being too warm is because you stayed in the middle of winter, not too much sun around at that time of the year unfortunately and the solar heating relies on this. A new LCD TV was just installed in that unit and I am sorry this was not tuned in properly, if this was brought to our attention we could of solved the problem, as with the milk. The bedroom now has a 'Super King' size bed instead of the 'Double' that was originally there, compromising a bit of floor space for a nice big bed. The $145 charged for a 2 bedroom unit for 4 guests is very reasonable and in fact less expensive than a cabin at the camping ground. We are constantly improving our units and the photo on our website of that unit is only of the bed - deceiving?? It is a shame you did not stay in the family unit with your friends where everything is brand new and luxury guaranteed.
Thank you for your comments.

Very basic room - clean but not much space. Fantastic big bed - absolutely brilliant. Pool, games room, playground etc. Very quiet and handy to motorway to get to Hastings. Fairly close to supermarket , pizza, park

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back - very quiet and close to pool and play area

quite a way out of the cbd but close to the state highway. on a main road but zero road noise. pool and spa are an added bonus. the unit was 2 bed with limited space in both bedrooms for suitcases, basic kitchen with very little equipment. staff were helpful.

Very roomy accomodation. Exactly what we wanted. Easy location. Good free Wifi and Sky TV to boot! Friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommended and really good value for money. Mary and Alwyn Hollins , UK

Room Tip: If the accomodation offers free Wifi and Sky TV, it usually means they are not 'penny pinching...

What a fabulous little holiday we had. Kids and Mum loved it!! The best part was we had a great family unit right next to the swimming pool. Pool was a god send as kids just lived in it. Unit was clean, tidy and just right. Facilities were great too as was the table tennis table, trampoline and pool table. Kids could take themselves of and play while I sat by the pool!!! Great location too as only 5 min drive into Napier city. Thanks so much to our friendly hosts Kevin and Lynnette. We shall definitely be back!!!

Room Tip: Ring the owners and explain what sort of room configuration you need.
