This is a large complex, a little way out of town but most people come with a car. The apartment was really large, excellent free washing facilities in the bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. The hot pools were lovely but didn't bubble. Disappointing breakfast but you could self cater.

Stayed here for 2 nights in January.The room we were given,although comfortable,was adjacent to a self contained suite which housed a large rather noisy family.There was a communal door between the rooms which allowed sound and pungent smells to drift in. Having said that the accommodation is well situated and we enjoyed our stay in Wanaka

Whilst the reviews I had read weren't all the flattering, we had no choice but to choose here because of an event upcoming in town so accommodation was difficult to find. However, I could not fault the hotel and its amenities. A little out of town but really there was no need to go into town as there was enough...

However the standard of servicing the room was extremely poor. Beds only pulled up and not made, pillows of poor quality, Rubbish bucket not emptied, bath mat not replaced, gobwebs in...

I was worried about this place when I read reviews but work had booked us in. I told reception my concerns and they warned me about possible noisy wedding guests. But it was all quiet, the rooms aren't gigantic but big enough to not feel too tight. Big balcony, nice shower no bathtub. My son and I enjoyed the pools...

Stunning resort with amazing hot pools and facilities. My boyfriend and I stayed two nights in a one-bedroom apartment, the staff are very professional and friendly upon arrival and check-out. The resort is located just before you get to Wanaka township, so is close enough but just out of the way so you get some peace and privacy. The restaurant...

Well past its days of glory. Need proper facelift. Cleaning service was very bad. Had to ask in reception to get the room cleaned. Vacuum only every fourth day which was a disaster for us with a baby. Lots of cigarette butts in the lawn outside our room which meant our baby couldn't play there. Asked several times to get...

Probably my third visit here. Disappointed to be honest. I had a room/apartment and the noise from apartments on either side was terrible. The walls are literally paper thin. People coughing/talking like they are in the room with you. I also found the bedding to be really poor for such a high grade resort. Terrible cheap pillows. Like bullets to...
