Very disappointing having booked through an i-site office. The room bore no resemblance to what was shown to us on website. It was drab, worn out and in need of a serious makeover. The carpet and lino was worn as were the bed covers. The electricity kept tripping the switch so we had one socket to use for all appliances. The shower was a disgrace, peeling. There was no help from reception. We spent the most money booking this motel out of our entire 10 days in the South island and were expecting luxury for the high prices. Our view was on one side a road and the other side a carpark and the back of other units (which had lake views!)
The area itself was beautiful, the lake and church and views were outstanding but the 'hotel' should be demolished!
