We got a great low season deal from GrabOne so value was good. Rae was lovely and helpful, rooms are big and beds very comfortable. They obviously take a lot of care to make it special, we would definitely recommend.
Kids loved movies on the big TV plus the hot tub. Countdown supermarket is next door if you are self catering.
Only negative was the advertised free Wifi which cut out a lot and was accessed through 100Mb cards which means you have to login every time you want to use it. This seems to be quite common in NZ but pretty frustrating. We did get extra cards at no charge when we asked but worth mentioning as a nudge towards a better system.
