We were lucky to have a fine weekend as there was a lot of walking from the chalets to the main dining area. Not a lot under cover.
Grounds and walkways were a little unkempt and the spa rooms needed sprucing up.
The chalets were nice but light shades had not been cleaned for some time. The entrance ways also needed sweeping and generally tidying up.
The beds in the lounge did not have electric blankets. One panel heater in each chalet only just heated the chalet adequately.
I thought the rooms were overpriced for what we got. The buildings are old and tired and need to be brought up to date.
Overall we did have a lovely time at The Wairakei Resort but it was mostly because we had not seen each other for some years rather than the venue we had booked.
