* Colonial One Bedroom Apartment (sleeps 6) *
Good Points = dog friendly, comfy beds, very clean and tidy, fab shower (but goes cold when kitchen tap is used), 2 TV's, good sized pots & frypan, good sized microwave, small fridge, no chipped plates or cups, no timer for the wall heater in the lounge, can have kids in lounge and parents in separate room, swimming pool (but it's solar heated so it's too cold to use at this time of the year), dog friendly!
Not so good = no heater for bedroom (we froze!), one of the bed lamps couldn't reach the power point so hubby couldn't use it to read, the toilet is on other side of the bedroom wardrobe and when you're in bed you can hear the toilet roll noisily turning against the wall, bedroom TV reception is very poor with few channels, no dishwasher, the toilet can't be used while someone's in the shower, prebooked and paid for family of five but the kids' beds were not made up when we arrived (late at night which they were informed of) and we weren't given any sheets, given tiny soap which was unsuitable for family of 5 (pretty average service), plates/cups etc are stored too high - even 10 & 12 yr old couldn't reach them safely, only given just enough cutlery (no extras for serving food etc), tongs couldn't be used (no spring), no cupboard space etc for storing food, stove rings were faulty - one was always too hot and the other was never hot enough, magazines provided on the table were 12 years old.
Considering the age of the unit etc, I thought $196 per night (for two adults & 3 chdn under 14, plus a dog) was on the high side.
Not a lot for 10, 12, 13 yrs olds to do in Ashburton - actually there's nothing. It's ok for younger chdn (flying fox, unheated swimming pool) but older chdn were totally bored and didn't want to stay.
