Our 5 night stay with another couple in apartment 7B, a two bedroom unit on the 7th floor of Tower 1, was a highlight of our visit to NZ. The Twin Towers are located at the epicentre of the Mount holiday area, directly above a cluster of cafes and restaurants, and across the street from the main beach. We had a spectacular 180 degree view over the beach and ocean. The living area was spacious, with a generous kitchen area, a dining table that seats 8, and comfortable seating for 6 or more people. The unit was luxurious and very well equipped, with a washer and dryer, a dishwasher, two TVs, and various CD and DVD players. There were cooking utensils, plates, glasses and cutlery for 8 people. The two bedrooms are small, but each has a commanding view, and one opens onto the large patio, which has outdoor seating for 6. There are two bathrooms (one is an ensuite). This privately owned apartment is definitely not your average motel.
There was one negative – no Internet. WiFi is available in the resort lobby for an extra charge, but coverage did not reach our unit. For the $430/night we paid, (which includes underground parking for one car, but not daily housekeeping service) there should be a free, good quality, broadband Internet connection in every unit. That said, and we would definitely go back to this or a similar unit in the Twin Towers.
