The apartments are in a great location - being just out of the hustle and bustle of the town - but close enough to walk to restaurants and shops etc. Plenty of undercover parking if you have a car. My only disappointment was the steep steps to get from the carport and to the apartments. the staff were excellent is...

We had a great stay in a 2 B/R apartment, and we were able to take our small dog too. The apartment was very well presented, appointed and very comfortable with great views. The kitchen is excellent, there is a full laundry, excellent heating (incl. a gas fire and heatpumps) and well appointed bathrooms. The carparking is undercover. It is...

The room was small, but spotless, modern and very comfortable. Nice bathtub. Also semi-private laundry available (you have to share with just one other unit) which is located right outside your door, so extremely convenient. The location is a tad bit outside of the center of town, but an easy 15 mins walk. The bus stop going to the airport...

When we checked in the staff were friendly and efficient and then they showed us to our one bedroom apartment that had the most spectacular views of the mountains and the lake.The only thing that we felt was unusual was that their was a studio attached to our apartment and that they entered through the same entrance as us, luckily...

Should have HD TV & Sky. SD is poor in this class of accomodation. Very sensitive smoke alarms makes cooking meat in pan an "alarming" act unless all doors & windows are kept open. Some road noise despite double glazing. Friendly & helpful management team,

We have stayed here three times. The rooms , we had a 1 bedroom, are very sizeable. Whilst 10 minutes outside main city, it's a nice walk in. Great views to be had when you wake up and we were spoilt with snow on mountains as well. Staff always helpful. Only comment is that the beds need an overhaul as...

The photos of the room was nice on the web-site, and once, we got inside the room, it was even better. The room and all the things that it was equipped, such as fireplace, laundry machine, bath tub, cool kitchen, they were enough to make us want to stay in the room more than going outside. Well, we did went...

Out apartment was roomy with outstanding views, and had all the amenities of home, with the added bonus of a fantastic gas fire that really pumped out the heat. Easy walk into village. Only negative was that an unexpected water issue meant we had no TV reception over an entire night, when we had planned a lovely night in by...

Dear becca221 Thank you for your review and feedback. With Winter upon us, it’s hard to beat the underfloor heating, air conditioning and the gas fire in each of the Apartments. I’m so sorry that the one night you were staying in that we had an issue with the water pipe bursting and was unable to watch Sky TV. Please...

The views of the Remarkables are great, the apartment was warm, well equipped and very comfortable - it even had a gas fire and the double-glazed windows cut out the noise from the road. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. As it is just a 10 minute walk into town, we could leave the car in the garage and...

Thank you for the lovely review susiem106. As a 5 Star Qualmark rated property we pride ourselves on providing luxurious accommodation, thank you. The walk and bike tracks opposite Pounamu and around the lake certainly are an added bonus with a lovely walk into town. It is so convenient being able to hire your bikes for half or a full...
