2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
An acceptable unit, but it's winter in New Zealand and the beds do not have electric blankets. Has a heated bathroom floor, but although we turned it on, it didn't work. There is no other heating in the bathroom, so very cold. The management could also have had the heating on in the unit prior to our arrival. Just a courtesy.....
