Our room had a spa bath but we did not use, next time we stay it will be longer. There was a sauna type room you could book so defnitally longer stay... More

We stayed here as part of our trip around New Zealand. A great location, beautiful sunsets and friendly staff. Rooms were clean but a bit dated. Food in the restaurant is great and the bar is good. Overall it felt like we paid for a stay at a 4 star hotel but got a 3 star. Having said all of... More

I would class the type of room we stayed in as motel as one had to exit the main part of the hotel and gain access to our room via an open balcony, fine in the summer, but I would not be wanting to pay over 200 New Zealand Dollars in the winter. Having said that our room looked directly... More

Great location, fairly spacious rooms, lovely outdoor space. The whole hotel is a little tired and would benefit from an upgrade, but the views are spectacular. We had the junior suite which more than met our needs and we enjoyed the comfortable balcony chairs. The staff were very helpful, although the restaurant is very average and the wait staff were...

Even though we didn't get a lake-view room, we were very happy where we stayed. All the staff were nice and polite, respect for guests. We also enjoyed the dinner in this hotel. They serve tasty NZ meals with reasonable price for that quality. Thank you!

Dinner in the buffet ($42.90 each), one of the tomato quarters were rotten, when I told the waiter he wasn't interested. We also had the buffet breakfast which was over $40 each; the eggs and hash Browns had been sitting for ages, eggs were watery and hash browns soggy and chewey. The toilet seat in our onsuite was not fixed... More
