First night in NZ. stayed over at Peppers to rest before our trip. Welcomed with a fresh homebaked bread still baking as we got there. Beautiful relaxing spot on the lake catering for all you need. Even a pillow menu!!! Cant fault anything at Peppers. Be back for sure.

Lovely golf course but accommodation is tired and in serious need of some refurbishment both in the apartments and the clubhouse which lets the experience down somewhat. The staff in the restaurant/bar are brilliant though with young enthusiastic chefs that go out of their way to please.

This resort has some positives. The staff are excellent. The view from the villas is serene. The bed is extremely comfortable. However, these are the negative issues encountered: Heating could not be regulated so was non existent even though the evening temperature was 10 degrees Celsius. Only half of the concertina balcony door could be opened because the handle was... More

We chose Clearwater as it was close to the airport and its previous good reviews. We arrived in the morning, the room wasn't ready, completely understandable. The receptionist managed to juggle things around and after a quick coffee on the terrace we were in our room. Good room, had a kitchenette, washing machine etc. There was some works being undertaken... More

Beautiful surroundings,over looking the lake and golf course. We were in a lake side room it was spacious,clean and the bathroom was incredible. Staff were extremely helpful and the breakfast terrace overlooked the lake, a beautiful way to start the day! We will definitely be back!

We booked Peppers purely for the in-room washer-dryer facilities. Unfortunately the dryer was less than useless and we had to rely on the staff to dry our clothes in the commercial machines. The staff were excellent though. Very helpful and very friendly. Lovely grounds for early morning jogs.

Kia ora, Thank you for your comments. I certainly acknowledge that these washer / dryers can be confusing to operate with some comng to the end of their life cycle. A replacement program has begun and over the next 3 months all these units will be replaced. Thank you for your comments regarding staff. I will certainly pass these on... More

Such a tranquil place to spend a couple of nights. It's not a cheap motel that's for sure and there is a minimum stay period (2 nights mostly). Beautifully cared for grounds with all the amenities you'd expect.

The best thing going for this place is the golf course - i say this because we spent the entire day there as opposed to the rooms. Let me also add that none of us has a handicap in golf - we can all just about hit the ball. They were really relaxed about us using the course, which was... More

We only stayed one night and we were in a hurry on our way through Christchurch on business. But we loved the layout of the resort and thought the apartment was outstanding. Will stay again, but hopefully for longer next time
