This is probably the rudest greeting I've ever experienced anywhere, which makes it sting all the more considering the high level of friendliness and hospitality of Kiwis. As you walk into reception there is a buzzer that goes off in quite a lengthy fashion. Three of us each walked in independently from our car, triggering the buzzer on the doorsteip. My son tripped slightly over the high step, setting it off for a fourth time. After quite a wait the receptionist came out with a face like thunder and told us not to do deliberately set off the alarm and that she was finishing her meal and we were making her choke as she couldn't swallow her meal comfortably. She was angry and unpleasant. I told her that we hadn't done anything intentionally other than walk through the door one at a time. She walked out and then returned to (somewhat) backtrack and apologize if she had been sharp. Sorry but nastiness of the outburst was totally unnecessary, particularly as we showed up at exactly the time that they had predicted we would arrive. Perhaps not a great time to be planning your meal? The grounds are well kept and the apartment is very clean and spacious but the tone that runs through the camp makes it the unfriendliest place I have stayed in NZ. Everywhere there are large notices forbidding something or reminding you of check-out time - eg. non-campers using the toilets will be fined, no cooking in the units etc. If you are booked there make sure you all run in through the door together and check out on the dot. Shame that the mini-golf we were hoping to play doesn't open till 1pm.
