It was a very nice property for its price. We were told the pool was heated but it was not. The wifi just keeps on failing. Otherwise everything is okay.

Overall experience was good. Only the lady receptionist who assisted us with checking in was not accommodating. Looks like she was having a very bad day and just displaced it on us. Not very nice

4/10 Fair

Advertised as 4 Star, even without Covid this Hotel is far from the stars advertised, which puts the whole star rating to shame, this is more like a high 2 star low 3 star hotel, rooms are clean but tired and dated, the layout of the toilet is somewhat uncomfortable and disconcerting. There is a constant low level banging coming from the plumbing or some other mechanics at night? While the pool was clean and great fun, there is very limited seating and what there is, is tired and rarely cleaned, we stayed six days and the same bird poo that was there on the first day on one of the chairs was there on the sixths day, very poor. Under the excuse of Covid there was very limited, well no services, zero, the reception was often unattended, the games room closed, the gym closed, the restaurant well read below, we were just happy the pool was open. Again under the excuse of Covid the morning breakfast, well was not, the choice was bacon or bacon, with tined beans, powder scrambled egg, tomato and some rather small sausages, and to top it off, it was served up like some Netflix prison meal, really don't include breakfast, it was the worst I've ever had. The over feel of the hotel was, well they had just given up, the pride had gone, now before you say oh Covid, we had just spent 3 days in another 4 Star hotel in Northland that had a full buffet breakfast with great choice, the games room was open with sensible precautions as was the gym, hmm LETS BLAME COVID!

Close to town. Great swimming pool. Sad that we were charged for breakfast that was included in our accommodation and a bar fee that did not relate to us. Swiftly sorted out by check out manager hopefully.
