“Awesome NZ summer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

One of my best stays travelling around the South Island of New Zealand last year. Great location, walking distance to the centre.The rooms are more like self contained apartments with fully equipped kitchen and laundry services. Amazingly helpful and friendly staff. Although the pool is pretty chilly for NZ climate and the price is reasonable for what it is. Thanks guys!

Our group of twelve all agreed it was the best place they had been to. Well appointed with full kitchens and king beds. Some of the group required walk in showers and the owners gladly organised the rooms accordingly. There wasn't a teapot but the owner's wife lent us hers for the duration of our stay. Some members used the heated pool. Very friendly with a newspaper delivered to the door each day except Sunday. Well placed with only two blocks' walk into town. A little further to a supermarket or an old fashioned grocers shop up the road.

Room Tip: Request a walkin shower if that is what you need.

I booked a studio unit with spa bath thru WOTIF. However upon arriving I was given a disabled unit (no spa bath).Altho disappointed, As they were fully booked I decided to go with however when I asked for a spa unit the next morning altho spa units were available I was told that because I had booked thru WOTIF I would not be given a spa unit as they were held for customers who booked directly. This is the first time I have experienced discrimination against a website booking. Also as mentioned in other reviews the rooms are NOT apartments rather STD motel rooms (and small at that). So all stay at your own peril YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

The most well appointed, organised, generous apartments and hosts we stayed in in the whole of the South Island, real value for money.

Room Tip: there's no views, being central city, so I expect all apartments are the same.

This pretty self-contained apartment complex is located just on the other side of the bridge in town. So it’s away from any noise & a short 2 minute walk across the bridge means you’re in town.

Other points:
- Picturesque river next door & a lovely restaurant across the road
- Very clean
- Managers are friendly & helpful
- Pool is sparkling clean but just a little too cold for us when we were there
- Comfortable bed
- Loved the sun streaming into the room
- There is sufficient on-site parking available, however sometimes people have multiple cars & take up more than one spot, but most of the time we were able to park in the parking
- Storage is a little limited in the room
- Bathroom gets quite steamy, even with the window open but is compact & practical
- Having a spa is terrific

You have everything you need at a reasonable price with daily service, so it’s very clean plus it’s in an excellent location. Just lovely.

Room Tip: We had a room on the ground floor near the pool & found it extra spacious because we had the lit...

We only stayed one night but as a busy couple who don't get away very often it was just awesome. Warm, sunny, quiet, comfortable, private and clean. Fanstastic staff who were not only very friendly and pleasent when booking but also on arrival. There was everything you could possibly have needed right there and with only a few minutes walking distance in to the city meant we didnt have to worry bout driving anywhere which was a huge bonus. Cost was for what we had (balcony studio over pool area) was great and well worth it for what we got and how we felt when walked in. All the staff should be proud of what the do and offer to people as this industy is a tough one. I will and have reccommended De Lorenzos as agreat place to get away for a few days and yip, even just one night to feel relaxed.

Room Tip: They are all great, warm and clean. It may be more expensive than a standard motel etc but so worth...
