“Beautiful rustic themed stay”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

This was the hotel my brother chose to hold his wedding reception. It was definitely odd for a Muslim Malaysian family to hold their wedding in a different country but alas my brother is always one for surprises. Me and my wife had the great opportunity of staying in our own unit with its own living room and kitchen just big enough and wide enough for two (or one more little pal). We were very happy to have gotten a unit where the backyard is facing the garden and the view was just great.

In the unit, I love how everything is placed neatly and simple. I also love how they cleverly hid the washing machine behind a kitchen cabinet door. I might just steal the idea for my own house. As we walk around the apartment stay, it felt so peaceful and tranquil, so English if I may say so myself.

The wedding hall was big enough for 60 people and the ambiance and the service were fantastic. The waiters and waitresses were alert and it was apparent by how quickly my glass was refilled at almost every sip. My brother rented a photo booth so that we could all bring a piece of the hotel and the joyous event back to where we came from.

Room Tip: Apparently some rooms do not have a washing machine. If you're one who needs to continuously was...

This hotel looks like it was lifted from the English countryside in that it is brick with ivy and other vegetation outlining the facility. Our second floor suite came with a good sized living room, huge bathroom, and bedroom with the suite taking up the second floor of our building. This allowed us to open a window at each end of the suite for cross ventilation. The shower was big enough not to need a door! Be aware the entry door has a serious spring on it and will close with a loud enough bang if you let it to bother the neighbors. In New Zealand hotels and many restaurants WiFi is always on offer for a fee. At this hotel there is a wired computer station just off the lobby that's free however it is really slow. If you choose to go WiFi you'll need to wade through two pages of internet rules and type "accept" in to go further. Expect to pay a 1.5% extra fee if you pay for anything with a credit card. We had an excellent dinner at the in-house restaurant The Orangerie. Not cheap, but recommended. There are bikes for rent and CNN is available on your TV. The pool is salt water and to get into the outdoor enclosure (also where the gym is) you need to both use your key card as well as pull up on the child prevention safety lock at the top of the gate.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are better for privacy and scenery, but you will need to schlep your own bags up...
