Lovely clean room but very small and too close to the reception. Really nice and friendly service from staff. Great salted swimming pool and spa. Nice and close to the town centre so able to walk there and back with ease.

They have a large spa pool beside the pool. Im pretty sure in NZ our Spas are what you call hot tubs. It heats its own water, has chlorine in it and bubbles up and can seat a few people, try googling spa pool nz and see what images come up. Their swimming pool is also heated. Hope this helps.
