We've just stayed 2 nights here in a king room with lake view and from the minute you check into the lobby, you know you are in good hands. The people at reception were very helpful all the time. Free unlimited wifi in the lobby!! The room was huge, with a comfortable king bed, a good plasma tv, a balcony, good views, the bathroom was big and spacious with a towel warmer, great for dying your washing. The mini fridge was very quiet. They give you free bottled water every day and night, turndown service and free newspaper daily.
The buffet breakfast was excellent, with lots of fresh fruit, yogurts, cereals, fresh bakeries and jams, fully cooked breakfast was included as well, eggs, bacon, sausages etc... The only thing not good was the coffee, out of a pot. You can purchase your coffee here for $4.50.
We had a car so took it into town etc... The outdoor spa was deliciously hot at 35 Celsius so we used it lots as its cold outside. Didn't use the gym but saw it and it was good.
Loved our stay here! The restaurant is fine dining, fabulous food!! We had prawns, crab, the steak was absolutely divine and cooked to perfection. Good NZ wines as well.
Do recommend this hotel and would come back.
