The apartment was excellently located with great views and easy access to restaurants. Very clean, tidy and comfortable. Would recommend and would stay again. Beds were comfortable and furniture generally to a high standard.

We only stayed two nights but I want to retire here. Bruce apartments are perfectly positioned near the main wharf and easy walking distance to lovely local restaurants and shops. Our apartment had two spacious bedrooms upstairs and downstairs was kitchen, dining, lounge, a hidden laundry and a very quaint balcony looking toward the historic lighthouse. It was a lovely...

Having stayed here 4 years ago, was keen to come back again. The staff were very welcoming and our apartment was great and even had a washing machine and dryer which we made good use of. The kitchen was adequate but would have been good to have a bigger fridge, it was just a bar fridge. The outlook was lovely... More

We spent 2 nights at the apartment and were delighted when we saw how close to the water we were. The apartment was very well appointed and the downstairs area was very comfortable. The view from the lounge area and main bedroom was lovely. The negatives were small but worth noting as the rates for the apartment are not cheap.... More

This is a great location, just across the road from the main wharf. Quite a few Restaurants nearby, within walking distance. The apartments are very clean and well appointed. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with was 2 story. My only complaints are the floor boards creaked terribly and there were no hooks in the bathroom. I would highly recommend... More

I love this place! Gorgeous two story apartment with French feel, awesome location! Such a nice place to spend a weekend and not feel like your trapped in a tiny hotel. We had an awesome weekend here, can't wait to go back!!

It's hard to review this apartment without bias for the town, as we had some big disappointments in Akaroa. (We went there specifically for the Black Cat Cruises dolphin swim, but the dolphins didn't want to come out on our trip and we weren't given the chance to book another cruise to try again.) Reception is confusing, as there is... More

Upon booking, we requested Unit 27 for three nights over Easter, which was confirmed and secured with my credit card. On arrival, we had to collect key from Tresori Motels. We were given room 32 (with a view of the public toilet block); the very rude woman at Tresori said that the occupants of unit 27 wanted to stay on... More

Lovely,spacious and clean, which are well equipted with everything you need. Two different managers in different places to check in, but are very close to each other but may pay to ask which place you need to check in before you get there. Our room over looked the pier which was nice but we had a noisey night with some... More
