6.0 Good
Pros: Nice food, friendly staff
Cons: Really patchy wifi in the villa. Air con was freezing and didn't work well enough to adjust, so turned it off. We thought instructions were probably on line but we couldn't access them because of the wifi. One light wasn't working.
6.7 Good
Pros: This gave us a slightly old school experience of NZ hospitality. Our cabin was ok. A little dated and the bed not the greatest. It was quiet though and we slept well. The restaurant is also a bit dated but comfortable, and we really appreciated that it was on-site and that we didn’t have to drive to find somewhere after a long journey. Also, the restaurant’s soft furnishings and lack of piped music (what a wonderful change, please keep this!) meant that we could have an easy conversation. The food was pricey but fine.
Cons: We only wanted a night’s stay so it was bit over-priced compared to others elsewhere in NZ. We were probably paying a premium for facilities we didn’t need like tennis and access to fishing though - so down to our choice.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Location.
Cons: Chalet type rooms overpriced for what are essentially pokey wooden huts. Some restaurant staff were very pleasant, others not so. Restaurant meal portions were quite mean given the inflated prices.
4.0 Okay
Pros: Chalet view of the mountain when we insisted on it and were moved. Surroundings were quiet and peaceful. Parking was convenient.
Cons: Karen on reception when we arrived was not warmly welcoming, however we appreciated getting into our room early. The so called spa pool was a joke - it was a uninviting jacuzzi in a cramped setting. The bar and restaurant were dark and lacked atmosphere and we didn't use them. Of all the places we have stayed in so far (2 weeks) in NZ it was disappointing and poor value for money.

Pros: The full kitchen i.e had a proper oven. The staff were very accommodating.
Cons: That there was a dead cockroach under a clean flannel. Think it was overlooked by cleaners.
1.0 Poor
Pros: The shower pressure.
Cons: We were given the key to our room before it had been cleaned, it was in a filthy state. Then we were ‘upgraded’ to a room that had at least been cleaned. There was a hole in the bathroom wall where crickets emerged after dark. There were two foot holes in the bathroom door where it had been kicked and most of the light fixtures and electric sockets did not function. We did not try to cook anything. In the morning I became aware that I had been bitten by bed bugs!

Cons: We had a difficult time making some food because we didn't have all the pan we needed, or a potholder.
9.2 Excellent
Cons: It was a little tired and its proximity to the main road meant there was a bit of traffic noise overnight.
7.0 Good
Pros: The room was spacious and very comfortable with a large super-king bed and comfortable couch. The kitchen is good and well appointed.
Cons: The curtain rail fell off when I went to close the curtains and the room smelt faintly of cigarette smoke when we first arrived. This disappeared with an airing. The surrounding gardens were clearly once splendid and are now just overgrown making the surrounds quite dark. The decor is very dated and despite the large room the shower/bathroom was poky.
