The location was great, close to the water as well as the restaurants that Ahuriri have to offer. We come from Australia and booked a week in a apartment at Bluewater Hotel however didn't have a washing machine nor did it have a stove top - only 2 x domestic washing machines and dryers for around 40 odd units! An electric fry pan was your stove top. Sort of defeated the purpose of why we booked an apartment. We paid almost $2000 for the week AND the washing machines and driers had coin slots! Unfortunately from talking to locals and local businesses this Hotel does not have a good reputation with the concencus being 'there are so many more nicer places to stay.' In saying this, the staff were polite and the rooms were clean.
I suggest that if the Hotel is going to charge the rates that they do, they would be best to invest money and bring it into the current day and age.
Disappointed. I would not stay there again and would not recommend this Hotel to my friends or family.
