My partner and friends were looking forward to the trip and the experience at Pinewood. Was let down by the young guy at reception. Very unhelpful and unpleasant. Everything was just too much trouble for him and that vibe carried over to the rest of the experience. (The girl on reception was good and hope the owners actually read this).
The room was ok but we had to boil all the cooking utensils as everything looked like it had not been cleaned properly...
Price for Queenstown is great and it is a great location.
Apparently have to book 4 days prior to arrival if you want the hangi, which is a shame. They bought a Pepperoni pizza. Don't know what planet the cook is from but whole peppercorns do not make a pizza.
Overall good for the price but need to be aware you get what you pay for. I would say it was good for groups and backpackers but not a place for a romantic getaway.
