We stayed in a two bedroom Marina View Apartment and it was just fantastic !! Amazing views , you could sit for hours watching the boats come in and out of the Marina ! The Apartment itself had very comfortable beds which were beautifully made up with nice clean smelling linen. You would be hard pressed to find a nicer Apartment with better views. I know the Apartments in complexes such as this are individually owned so make sure you request an up spec one as we peeped in a door while the cleaners were working and we couldn't believe the difference ! The swimming pool is another great asset to this place and the front office people were very friendly and so very helpful ! We have found a slice of NZ paradise and are all ready planning our next holiday but will save hard so we can stay longer, we really didn't want to leave as loved this place ❤

The apartment was great - clean, modern and in a nice location. The kitchen facilities were really good and the beds were comfortable. There was a pool and spa but unfortunately I didn't have enough time to use these (I was only here one night). My family and I arrived after 6 so we had to find the room and car park by ourselves and we got very confused! The car parks were in a very weird order from what we could see, but that was the only negative to the accomodation. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and directed us to the best spots in the area to visit. Would definitely recommend staying here :)

Hi there Delaney R,

Thank you taking the time to post this review, we really do appreciate it!
We are glad to hear that enjoyed your short stay here with us. It is unfortunate that you did not have enough time to enjoy all of our facilities, maybe next time you will able to stay a little longer.
We understand that the carpark can be a little hard to navigate, especially being a late arrival. We are in the process of organizing them to be repainted so hopefully this will solve that problem. :)

Booked this accomodation last minute and wasn't sure what to expect with the mixed reviews (wifi etc).. Safe to say we absolutely loved it!! Warm welcome from Pam at reception. I had called earlier to advise of delays and she was more than accomodating but we arrived just on time. Booked the two bedroom marina view apartment. Very clean, modern and homely! I didn't want to leave..
The view was absolutely beautiful.
The lounge has air con which is great the rooms however don't but there was a fan in the wardrobe which we only found when leaving, would have made a huge difference had we found this earlier lol.. All in all fantastic and I won't hesitate to come back!! Actually really looking forward to planning a trip back :) Thank you Pam!!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which had a great view and was modern, very spacious and clean. The location was perfect - right next to the marina and 3 minutes walk to the town centre.

But we were disappointed by the service which included a 5c charge for sugar (I'm not kidding!) and no replacement for the one tiny soap. The room was only serviced once per week. We were given a voucher for one week of free wifi but this expired quickly and no replacement was given even after 1 week. Given the very high price of the apartment we were quite disappointed with the poor level of service although the staff were friendly enough. If you're paying top dollar you should expect top service and not be nickel-and -dimed at every opportunity.

Hi there johncmorris,

Thank you for taking the time to post this review. We are glad to hear that you liked our apartments, the views are amazing, aren't they!
As our apartments a fully self contained, we provide a small 'welcome pack' to get our guests through the first 24 hours of their stay, after this it is up to the guest to purchase any further materials required. This is a common practice when staying in self contained apartments, I'm sorry that you were not aware of this, and hope it did not spoil your stay too much.

These apartments are centrally placed and handy to everything you will need for your stay. Just a few problems with our apartment. The first is that our apartment was south facing, therefore no sun. The second was a bed issue, the electric blanket was too small for the bed resulting on the controls being underneath you while lying in the bed, not very comfortable.

Hi there Bruce R,

Thank you for your review.
Unfortunately some of our apartment will have to be South facing and Im sure you will understand that at this time of year we are very busy with nearly every apartment full. Our South Facing apartments still have a lovely view out over the field and on to the estuary, would you agree?
I will look into the matter in regards to the electric blanket, thank you for bringing it to our attention.
