Positive Reviews

Apartment units win praise

The serviced apartment units on offer here prove popular with guests who report that they are clean, contemporary and comfortable with cosy beds. There’s also praise for the pleasant en-suite bathrooms that are generously sized. In addition, travellers frequently say that the kitchenettes are well equipped and contain everything they need to make simple meals. Moreover, visitors are glad that certain units contain their own laundry machines.

A quiet location near the town centre

Guests love that when they stay here they are within easy walking distance of town centre amenities plus dining and shopping options, including a supermarket. Furthermore, it appeals that there is easy access to Lake Taupo for waterborne activities or simply taking in the fine views along the shoreline. Another bonus is that the location is fairly quiet without being too distant from the heart of downtown.

Positive sentiment about customer care

Reviewers speak highly of the good customer care they receive from a team of dutiful, courteous and obliging staff members at this property. Self-caterers often add that they appreciate the convenience of the pantry shopping service.

Negative Reviews

Grumbles about TV package

Travellers sometimes wish there was Sky TV provided in the rooms here. Instead, there is an alternative package that offers on-demand movies. For some avid TV viewers, the lack of a more comprehensive package is a setback.

Limited free Wi-Fi

It frustrates guests that the free Wi-Fi access at this property is limited to one device. It means those with additional devices have to pay an extra fee in order to connect them.

Nuisance smells reported

There are occasional reports in reviews that a mysterious odour, likened to a fishy smell, can be detected in some of the apartments. Reviewers occasionally blame poor ventilation for allowing the smell to linger.
