We stayed at 5 different self contained apartment during our 12 days trip in nz. This one was the only one where we had an unpleasant experience.
However, I will try to give a fair review of our stay:
On the positive:
- Modern and clean room
- Big bathtub
- 5min walk to shopping center
- Cheap internet rate
- Free parking space
On the negative:
- At the reception, there was a message on the wall mentioning "Check-out time at 10:00am. You may be on holiday, but we are not". I found it unwelcoming.
- There was no mention anywhere we had to clean the dishes before leaving. There was even no info about the charges anywhere, but I was charged 20$ by the host. I did not argue as I was in rush to leave. In other location, they either inform or include the dishwashing service into the room rate.
- The 2 bedroom apt does not have good cooking facilities. Very difficult to cook as the frypan was too big and the cooking stove way too small. And as soon as you cook something, the smell spread in the whole apartment.
- No dishwasher
- the 2 bedroom apt was small
In summary, the room is clean, modern and good if you want to eat out. But not good for family who wants to do their own cooking.
You will need a car to go to city center (which is actually closed).
