Refreshing country manor hotel in rustic setting
Two night stop enroute to Napier while touring the North Island of New Zealand. Gorgeous hotel set on large country estate withing easy driving distance of Rotorua, Taupo, and Napier. Spectacular restaurant. Exceptional service. Polite efficient front desk.Lovely pool, gym, and hot tub. Rustic surroundings very relaxing.

Fair2.0 / 5
Book as a last "resort"
For a "resort", it sure was disappointing to find that the inside of our unit musty smelling. The rooms need a good paint job, at the least. The caulking around the tub is mildewy and the sink has cracks in them. Definitely need to upgrade before calling itself a resort.

Poor1.0 / 5
Seriously disappointing and wouldn't recommend
First up - liberating a huge cockroach out the unlocked door to the ground floor balcony. Tried to hang up coats in wardrobe - door was stuck/jammed part open on arrival and no amount of me pushing/pulling would fix. Turned heater on full blast as the room was freezing and musty - by bedtime 4hrs later we were still cold. Kids wore clothes under their onesies, I wore a hoodie and woolen socks to bed. Bedding wasn't adequate for winter in Taupo, and there was nothing spare in the room in case it wasn't sufficient. When booking, the pics of the bathrooms in particular implied we would be staying somewhere nice, but they are outright dishonest if you end up in a room like ours. Our room was from the 80's - decor was dated and bathroom was appalling given what we had been expecting (even the kids said 'this doesn't look like the pics we saw online'. See my honest pic for an idea of what you could get). I'd never book a place like this, so to be surprised with it when thinking you've booked lovely, modern and clean - well they should warn your as currently it's just false advertising. We were the first room by the access hallways - we woke every time someone slammed the door at all hours, not great for people who don't sleep like the dead. Lastly, condensation on the windows in the morning was terrible (see pics) - a bag left too close had dampness inside from where it had dripped into it overnight - not happy.
