We stayed for one night at the beginning of May with ourselves and our 2 children. A bit of confusion with the booking and the room we thought we were getting, but the hosts were only too happy to sort it out and give us a choice of rooms. They went out of their way to ensure we had a great night - amazing service and hospitality that I have never come across before! The hot plunge pool was great, the bed was extremely comfortable (far more comfortable than the hard beds we stayed in recently at a 5 star hotel in Auckland CBD), the kids had a great time and we will definitely be back. The kids loved the heated swimming pool too.
Very good value for money too, epecially for a family. Yes, the rooms are dated, but the hosts are in the process of upgrading (which takes time - as anyone in business knows it doesn't happen overnight or within days!). We were shown enough rooms to see the effort that is going into upgrading them. All the rooms were extremely clean and tidy and comfortable, which is far more important than the latest fashionable bed covers!More
