Good position, which is why we chose this hotel to be near to restaurants at Ahuriri during New Years week. We had 2 couples and 1 adult, I explained this to them they advised they could do a 2 bedroom apartment for 5 for 2 couples and a single in lounge, but it was 3 singles and 1 queen and cost $300 for the night. Was assured was all set up for 5, but was missing towels, plates and cutlery, very limited crockery etc and is defintely only set up for 4 not 5. Hhad to go to reception 3 times before we had what was needed and what should of been in there anyway (girl on reception was apologetic and nice, not her fault, she blamed the cleaners. We even bought some glasses from supermarket, didn't want to go to reception for a 5th time!! Couldn't get pillows for even 1 each, let alone 2 each!! They had no spares. Biggest let down, only 1 bathroom, which I hadn't checked on, not practical for 5 people and perhaps they should explain this? We actually had a cheaper option down the road, but went for this one as pictures on web look great, but this place is very dated compared to pics. We were missing bedding for pull out and looked everywhere. We did later find it, literally screwed up (dirty and smelly!!) squashed inside the pull out bed (yuk!!). They did find us clean bedding, but overall not a nice experience and was very disappointed. Did express to the receptionist the next morning, who didn't really know what to say, so paid and left without much fuss but would never recommend to anyone or stay again, they still charged us full price too.
