Have always driven past but have never stayed as it looked very dated, but this time we booked in and wish we had chosen here before. Apart from the beautiful gardens which is obvious from the drive by, the interior is charming. Our room was huge, clean as and a gorgeous view overlooking part of the garden. The restaurant and...

Stayed a night at the motel section. The room was spacious and well equipped with a small kitchenette that included an induction stove. The bathroom had a bathtub and good quality toiletries and the room and linens were all very clean. The only issue I had was the wifi which was limited to 1.5Gb and only for 3 devices which...

Stayed in a motel unit. Was spacious and facilities were adequate for our needs.The staff were wonderful. Room service meals arrived on time and were restaurant quality. Had locked door between two units so that they could be used by families.

We've been all around New Zealand and this place, although fairly priced was not what we expected based on their TA rating of #2. Now, we stayed in the old hotel section and maybe others that have stayed in the newer section to deserve the better reviews. Not sure. Anyway, went to use the sauna and spa to find out...

Hello JPinkerman, what can I say 3 strikes is unacceptable! Unfortunately our Spa is out of service, we are very frustrated at the time it has taken to receive the required parts for the Spa. As for the Men's sauna not sure what happened there, on investigation the sauna had been turned off! talk about a downward spiral happening. We...

Our accommodation was clean and spacious, with microwave, hotplate and all the equipment we needed, one of the best we had so far, although the toilet area was a bit on the small side. What a difference from Manapouri.

Booked a hotel room for one night. Large room, comfy bed and decent shower all tucked boxes for me. We had a problem with operating the heater and the staff member who came down spent a significant amount of time helping us get it going. Dinner was delicious and featured local produce extensively. The following day we came down too...
