Firstly this hotel came up when searching for hotels in the Thames area but in actuality it's almost an hour away. That in itself was disappointing. The rooms are like secluded little tree houses which is nice unless you have a noisy neighbor. We chose to eat at the hotel restaurant and were again disappointed. Service was slow and food was mediocre. We only stayed for the night and weren't able to take full advantage of the amenities that I feel the resort is probably know for.

Pros: Bathroom was redone. TV had channels from outside NZ.
Cons: More parking, enough room for guests to eat.
Location: We went to Cathedral Point and some amazing beaches.
We were disappointed with almost everything with this hotel. We got to the hotel around 4:00 on Saturday. They asked if we would like dinner at the hotel we said yes, he said the best they could do was 9:00. Not a problem we can just go into town. We got to our cabin which we were not expecting, parking is a long ways away and up hills. After we returned from dinner there was no room in any parking lot.

Nice hotel

Posted Jan 31, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel is secluded on a hill and the chalets are well placed so you feel on your own in nature when you are in the room. The balcony of our chalet (#2) looks out on to a leafy hillside so v. serene. I think all the chalets have good views. The rooms are v. clean and well-appointed. The room tariff is not cheap though. Pauanui is a small town so that may explain the cost. As the hotel is on a hill, the walkways to the rooms can be quite steep, but the hotel provides golf cart service on request.

emplacement exceptionnel

très beau séjour. manque de services à l'accueil (proposition de sorties, prestataires) pour des personnes ne parlant pas bien anglais. pas de navette gratuite entre l'hotel et le ferry par exemple. manque de choix de plats au restaurant. sinon rien à dire superbe hotel

Pleasing paradise

Pros: the size of the room
Cons: tired decor and peeling wall paper in hallway
The only comment is that the decor is starting to look a bit tired.

Sounded great

Posted Feb 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
Lovely location but really overpriced for what it is. Lacking the finer touches. Little things give the wrong impression....can't parking by your chalet, no mini bar, tired bathrooms, 5 star restaurant - food nice but didn't warrant the Auckland prices nor did service. Lack of internet. All your expectationsfrom a 4.5 star property were delivered in the average category.
