“Great overnight stay”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

We stayed at the Resort for one night to break our long road trip. The resort is very well appointed and the room was one of the best that we have stayed in in all our travels. It was large with modern facilities with the bathroom being next to none. The view over the lake was spectacular. Distance from the restaurant was a problem as it was raining and we were not aware that there was a pickup available. Menu at the restaurant I feel could have a little more variety and I preferred the selection next door at the bar. Ok place to stay.

Room Tip: As for a room overlooking the lake.

With the damage done to the hotels in the Canterbury region, we were booked into this for a short overnight stay in this venue as one of few options currently left for a business trip. The rooms are fantastic - double storey, very spacious, excellent furniture and facilities, very cool bathroom with a dual shower that overlooks the lake. The stay was far too short and we wished there was some way we could have booked here longer or just hung around and luxuriated. The value was outstanding. The room rate equated to about $A150 for the night - best value in a hotel room with such features. The only downside is the location - if you are touring NZ, this is hours from anywhere special and sadly Christchurch is a long time in the mending.

I was lucky enough to be hosted at Clearwater at a conference. I was given my own room over looking the lake - what a wonderful sunset and sunrise - the snow covered mountains were pink - what a sight from the bedroom.

I was quite a walk from the hotel reception, but that was no trouble with 24hr pick up and drop off by the reception staff - they were prompt and helpful. So no problem if you don't have a car the staff are there to be of service.

While a bit out if hand if you don't have a car (easily accesible from CHC by car/taxi), this is a beautiful resort in Christchurch that exceeded my expectations. The massive living area, luxurious bathroom, beautiful bedroom, and nice surroundings made it a pleasant stay. There was also free parking, as we happened to have a rental car this time around, and the service was above wonderful. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone looking for a break in CHC.

Stayed 2 nights whilst visiting Christchurch, accommodation is pretty tight in this city, Peepers is a very nice facility, mainly a golf resort style.

Had a 3 bedroom villa, very clean, near new.

The restaurant and bar were also great.

We stayed here for 2 nights recently. We rented a 2 bedroom lagoon suite AND a single suite as we wanted a 3 bedroom experience so we could separate the kids!. The property could certainly do with a little sprucing and painting to maintain its suppposed 4+ star rating, but overall I cannot really complain - it was clean and tidy.
The distance from reception to the villas is quite a distance if you are staying at the end of the resort but being by the lake and even having your own little jetty (to feed the blue ducks etc), certainly makes it worth while.
Breakfast in the morning was quite nice and good for the price. I feel dinner is a little expensive for the quality of the food, more like Parnell prices for a Queen Street meal but you cant have everything perfect all of the the time...........................I would definately come back here particularly bearing in mind that it is slightly out of the earthquake zone which my kids were constantly worried about.
