Construction Site - Beware

1.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 19 Jul 2023
The website claims “little if any disruption to hotel guests”. If you regard an entire side of your room being covered in scaffold, and having workers hold meetings and use power tools outside your bedroom and lounge room as little if any disruption then you’re in the wrong game. This room should not be used while construction is underway and it’s questionable if the block should be.

I enjoyed my stay, the heating worked well which I was most happy with being a frosty time to visit. Like the access via Frankton walkway, nice staff, great stay. Would have been happy with hot choc in the tea coffee tray, enjoyed the stay over all.

Hotel has good location, great view facing Lake Wakatipu. Free shuttle bus to CBD. However, no restaurant onsite. Also, a lot of renovation on going. Access going to room was like a maze. Needs improvement on customer experience.

Experience the most captivating view of the mountains from the location of this hotel. Across the lake to the snowcapped mountains. The spacious balcony is inviting on a sunny day. The beds are very comfortable and the pillows superb. The general layout of our apartment was spacious and equipped with bath tub and all the necessities of a kitchen are available.
When we stayed, renovations were underway and although noise was not a problem (long weekend) the reduction in parking spaces was awkward.
The only negative I could mention was the bar food was pretty ordinary and staff a little inexperienced but otherwise totally worth the money .

Apartment was beautiful, fabulous views.
Too far out of town without a car.
Shuttle only operating from 4pm
Beware of construction of new apartment building, we were right next to it, which made access to room tricky and also noise was issue
We lost hot water twice.

Rooms were amazing but the $1 bond by only credit card was ridiculous. Never needed a credit my last stay Let alone own a credit card. So was made to get $200 cash out from in town that’s busy as with a tired toddler.

Regarding the NZD 1 pre-auth transaction, it is not a bond, it a standard procedure in order to check that we do have a valid credit card registered as the guest's backup in case extraordinary expenses had to be charged such as property damage, Food&Beverage Room Charges, etc.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We look forward to an opportunity to welcome you back in the near future.
