My partner and I (both 25) stayed here for 2 nights in Dec 2012. We would happily have stayed longer.
The apartment was much bigger than we expected. Two sofa beds, table and chairs, tv and a practical kitchen all in a large living room. They only give you enough milk for one bowl of cereal though. You park your car directly outside your room which is handy.
The bathroom has heated lights and a spacious shower. There is plenty of storage space for suitcases and to hang up clothes.
The bedroom opens into your own private courtyard with a hot tub. Hot water is available between 7am and 10pm. You can sun bathe comfortably in here too because the high walls block the wind. There is also a swimming pool and an additional hot tub you can use for free. There are swings and a trampoline for kids.
Check in is at 2pm and check out is at 10am. It is about 50mins walk to the town centre. 5 mins to drive there. Parking is free on Sunday. We didn't think much of the town centre. It was a bit run down and nothing appealing to look at. But there were a few restaurants.
The hotel is situated 20 mins drive from Wai-o-tapu and close diving distance to the mouri experiences.
I would recommend staying here, it was good value for money.More
