One night stay. Great location--not too far from Christchurch. Looked like a nice golf course, although didn't play. Restaurant good too.

Lovely high country resort outside of Christchurch
Lovely facility and location. The food in the restaurant was excellent but the service was slow and somewhat lacking. There was only one other couple in restaurant for dinner. Emma was most professional and welcoming upon our arrival. Bed and bedding very comfortable, room was essentially a one bedroom apartment. Golf course in spring condition, re-working of bunkers was ongoing.

Weekend away
Weekend away for two was fantastic. Quiet secluded place to relax. But so many activities to do. Clay bird shooting is a must as the person really teaches well. Partner who had never picked up a gun ever was shooting within minutes. Room sizes were generous for both living areas and bedrooms. The covered garage for the car was plus in this region. Spa treatment & Jetboating were great activities too along with free to use mountain bikes. Needed more time to do the walks on offer. May have to come back again. Only average thing was Buffet meals on offer. Thought these were not something I would like to see at this level of hotel. Great weekend away overall.

Beautiful location - spacious room
Beautiful spacious room with spa tub, separate lounge/diner, laundry facilities, fully equipped kitchenette and out side private patio. Lovely mountain and lake views. We had a lovely meal at the restaurant and a very nice breakfast too in the cafe. It was very restful and quiet and we wish we had time to spend longer here. Staff are friendly and helpful and there are plenty of activities available to keep you occupied for a longer stay.
