We had a fantastic view from our wee unit (4), the service was great and the heat pumps definitely made the difference in the cold mornings, free WIFI which was great, pretty close to town as well which was ideal, will definitely stay again next time.

Nothing in the on-line promotion prepared us for this very second rate accomodation. Service was fine - but the room was in desperate need of a complete recondition. Room was smelly, fridge was rusting and no milk provided, etc ..... General appointments were the worst we'd experienced throughout our stay in New Zealand.

The downside - the lake area across the street wasn't adequate for swimming - but the view was nice. The property is in a neighborhood which made for good early morning...

The location was beautiful, with great...
