Great for pool and hot tub relaxation.
This was a very modern and spacious room. I'm sorry we were only there to spend one night. Clothes washer and dryer in room with detergent provided. Nice kitchenette.

Could have used A/C
I was a bit disappointed by this hotel. It was adequate but nothing spectacular. I appreciated that there was easy parking and the pool and spas looked nice (we unfortunately missed our opportunity to use them as we arrived late). Actually, the shared spaces were probably the highlight of this hotel. The room that we were assigned as OK at best. The bed was uncomfortable and the linens were stained, the bathroom was nice, a little dated but clean, but the room was HOT and it didn't appear that we had an air conditioner. If we weren't on the ground floor we'd have felt more comfortable leaving the sliding door open for air. Probably our least favorite hotel in NZ.

Not bad, long way up the hill out of town so a taxi was needed. We were on the ground floor with the upstairs having to go right past our door meaning it was noisy.

Beautiful scenery
Rooms was lovely and clean. We could hear the conversations of the people in the unit beside us very clearly. Also had someone arrive on the Sunday late afternoon and do repairs on one of the units. It was really noisy and not appropriate really.

Spartan hotel. Good for a one night stopover.
