We stayed here for 2 nights on our trip around New Zealand. We had Sandyford cottage which had a lovely sitting out area with views across the bay. We enjoyed it here, and used the laundry facilities which were available. We had no trouble with the wifi though it did go slow in the evening. Our kettle didn't boil properly... More

We stayed at the little cottage with bush view, and were very very very disapointed with the overall quality of the cottage. This is NOT luxury cottage! It is the worst value for money we've had in 3 weeks traveling in NZ. The cottage was also dirty : I found hairs in the bath and in the corners. Everything is... More

A beautiful property only a few minutes drive from town. If you want a quiet place to relax then this is it. Good bed and pillows, pleasant staff and nice outlook. Only thing to be aware of is the shower is over a large spa bath so may be difficult to get I and out of if you are not... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights in a sea view cottage in order to relax. We had been touring around NZ and visiting friends and this was the end of our trip. Lovely little hideaway, I agree that some TLC is required. It needs the gradient of the poorly maintained gravel drive mentioning as it does have a... More

We stayed 2 nights over Christmas. 4 of us and took 2 cottages. One larger one higher up with a lake view. Saw some lovely sunrises and sunsets. Requested a BBQ which was kindly supplied.Helpful reception staff. Cottages were fine but we could have done with more than the minimum crockery. Also, there was very little storage for our clothes... More

Terrific location, sweeping views, great service. We arrived late at night and had no trouble checking in. Stayed in a sea-view cottage. Unbeatable views. A little more attention could be paid to cleaning though. It would be a bit of a walk into town though, so you'd probably end up driving.

When we first arrived, we were quite impressed at first. Visually, the cottages are set on a little hill with a beautiful view and the grounds were well kept. We got a lovely old cottage with a white picket fence but on the inside there is a lot that needs updating. The taps in the bathrooms are the separate hot... More

This has been one of my favourite places to stay. I stayed in a small studio cottage with the most beautiful view over the water. It is so quiet, the only sounds I could hear were the birds singing. It's better to have a car though, I didn't and although the walk to town was short it was a little... More

After reviewing the website, and making our decision to book, we were expecting good things. Our expectations were not met. For example, $370 a night you would expect more than the run of the mill motel tea and coffee offerings. This lack of class was matched by the cheap decor and fuex-cottage style. In short, the language and photography on... More

If you are looking for something private and special this is it! We stayed for 5 nights - and it was very peaceful. The cottage had all that we needed - kitchenette, lounge/dining separate bedroom - spa bath and shower. We requested a bbq and they bought one up for us. The setting is just magical and we had an...
