We stayed here for four nights while on a trip around the South Island, we booked over the Internet which was quick and easy.
When we arrived they could not find our booking so spent over an hour trying to sort it, nothing was offered while we waited and waited. Finally they found it and we were sent on our way with a map to our room. Don't expect any help at this hotel as they do not have porters so travel light or get a room on the bottom floor but traipsing up three flights of stairs arrrr not so nice. We booked a 'lakeview suite' which we assume we got not sure where the lake view came into it we could see a fence and if you stood on your tippee toes the road and houses on the other side. We were thankful for the extra room though with couch, kitchenette and table, the bed was very comfy and it was a lovely thought to have a fresh loaf of bread waiting for us in the bread maker (that got you and extra star)
Room cleaning also finishes at 12pm which we were not told so twice our room missed being cleaned as we didn't realise there was a cut off time until we called and were told so. The walls are very thin and we could hear people in the upstairs room very clearly which was kinda disturbing
One thing I never understand is when providing a washing machine in the room why buy the most complicated machine with lots of symbols which mean absolutely nothing unless you have some instructions..............
Close to airport but a long way to the CBD or any decent shops.
If you love golf maybe you can put up with these few things but otherwise I would look elsewhere for a relaxing stay.
