4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Beautiful property with a great location that is easily walkable to the village center. The rooms were immaculate and the bathroom/shower was large and had good water pressure and hot water. We'had a two- bedroom and it was perfect fot my friend and me. It was very warm fir New Zealand when we visited so fans were supplied since the property does not have air conditioning. However, by next summer rooms will have A/C. That is good news and we would definitely stay here again especially with the news of the A/C installation. We had a wonderful stay!

    great staff, nice rooms and lovely view. what i did not like was warning signs saying if the rooms are too messy and takes longer time to clean, they will charger 100 dollars. it was not a cheap place to stay at so i dont think that should be there
