we stayed as a couple over Easter in a king spa suite. The rooms were spacious, clean and tidy but although we had a large separate room containing dining table, chair, lounge suite, extra large TV, fridge, microwave and kitchen cupboards for Africa, there was only 2 wine glasses, 2 cups, 2 small glasses and 2 teaspoons. There was nothing to eat off if you might want to heat anything in the microwave, no knives or plates for my cheese and crackers so the extra room you paid to enjoy was rather superfluous unless you were packing as if for a camping trip!
On the plus side, the hotel manageress was excellent when we did ask for these to be supplied, we just found it bizarre that these items had been removed from a room set up with it's own dining area.
We played golf at the Wairakei golf course which is extremely close by, so a great place to stay for a golfer.
