Very stylish modern studio with good quality facilities though these are in line with a hotel room rather than a motel room - no cooking equipment apart from a toaster. The room was comfortable but small, and was only a door thickness away from an apartment for which the studio could obviously be a suite. Overall a little expensive for...

The units were very clean and modern. Management/reception very pleasant and helpful. Located less than five minutes from Kaikoura by car. The environment was very quiet and relaxing. However, the location would be inconvenient without a car. Like most studios there wasn't much space and the cost was on the high side for a studio room.

Like the previous reviewer we had booked a studio and were persuaded to upgrade. We loved the apartment so much that we self-catered every evening - this alone saved the extra cost from upgrading. When we got 'home' we didn't want to leave! The apartment was clean, spacious and very comfortable. The bed was large, the bathroom a double -...

We had booked a studio but were offered an upgrade to an apartment. I peered through the window of the apartment and was hooked. For a few dollars more it was well worth it. Well equiped kitchen, big snuggly sofas, and fantastic spa bath. By cooking in the apartment for a few nights, which we couldnt have done in the...

We spent 12 days in New Zealand in March 2011. Have to say this property is probably the highlight of our entire trip. It is a very modern property, well-looked after, fully furnished with all the modern amenities and luxuries including a fireplace and an outdoor barbeque set for every unit. Wished we could stay longer at this property. p/s:...
