Accessibility. Didn't like the flying of the flag of China next to the NZ one. If that had a tourist function, fine, but I suspect it was more of a political statement, yet more evidence of the creeping, insidious reach/infiltration of our country by a vile, un-elected Communist clique. For that reason, I won't be staying there in the future.

    Helpful manager on site

    Toilet leaked. Fixed promptly by management. The people upstairs left the tap on and flooded their unit. Our unit bathroom floor was wet. Management was very apologetic.

    # Sound proofing spa areas with plants/climbers? # Toilet door should be a slider, very awkward to step in and close not very impressed. # Spa was lovely Alas really noisy. # please have tv batteries checked. # Front and back doors were left open for a breeze to come through, pleasant, no air con. # Traffic noise wasn’t that annoying. # Reasonable parking access. Overall we had a very pleasant rested night.
