We arrived after a 3 hour drive from Auckland and appreciated the spacious room. Located next to a racetrack, that wasn't opened at the time we were there, the room overlooked the racetrack. Lighting, in the room, could have been better as there was a dimly- lit space where the luggage and closet are located. The bathroom was clean and spacious with a double sink. Breakfast was not included in the price of the room but offered variety and a choice of meat-verses-no-meat option for a $6 difference in price; food was okay. The spa/jacuzzi bath was located on the patio, which was across the room from the bathroom area (oddly placed from an organizational perspective but since I'm not from this part of the world, let me just say its different.) The gift shop hours were limited in the time it was opened, and cramped with little room to move around. The biggest annoyance was the fact that only one room key was activated at any given time for entry into the room. Although we asked for two only one actually worked and when we asked for the other to be activated the one that worked was deactivated. Not a big deal but why two couldn't be activated was beyond me. I had been told not to expect much from wait staff by way of "being of service" when in New Zealand restaurants so I would include this experience in that category.
