Reviewed April 2, 2009

It was a surprise weekend for my wife for our wedding anniversary. Adelaide was very helpful played along very well, the look on my wifes face was priceless. The room was clean and comfortable with a fantstic view of the lake. Breakfast was arranged for 9.00am arrived on the dot. We sat out on the balcony had breakfast looking out over the lake. Overall a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend. Thank you.

Just over the main road from the lake so we thought proximity would be a problem but it wasn't. We were in the 'back' block with double glazed windows (rare in NZ) and it was pleasantly quiet with a good view of the lake.

Nothing outstanding about the rooms but adequate. Separate sleeping areas but you have to walk through the single bedroom to get to the rest of the unit.
In fact the single beds are at the front door so I would say that they are actually in the entrance way. So the description of separate rooms is stretching it a bit.

The spa bath is in the main part of the room and the toilet and shower are just past the single beds then there is a sliding door separating this from the kitchenette, spa and double bed. So a bit weird

Extractor fan in bathroom rattled a bit in the wind too.

  • Liked — Good view of lake
  • Disliked — Room layout, wanted separate space from children
