    这个酒店就是离好牧羊人教堂很近,步行5~10分钟就能到了,自然也能看到湖景。The first room that we were given needy some TLC,when we complained wewere given another room which was more like the standard we are used to.We are British but live in Christchurch once we told them this the newroom was given to us. If we were visitors it would have not left a goodimpression if we had been the first room. Only a pricey buffet mealavailable because a wedding reception was taking place.

    The location was great, the bed was comfy and it was good having theprivate spa facilities. The staff were friendly and quite helpfulThe room wasn't actually that good in terms of value for money.We paid $120 and there were very little facilities available.Although it had a fridge it didn't have any other kitchenfacilities such as a microwave. The shower was incredible small andthe showerhead too low for a normal sized person. The extra two bedsin the room could have been taken out to provide more room (ie roomfor a queen bed) On the whole, even though we were given a"Deal" I would have expected more and definitely would nothave liked to pay any more than I did.

    Good location - quite a nice room - nice pool and spa if the weather is good.Very tired and worn. Even if everything wasn't dirty it looked asthough it might be just because it was so worn out. Apart from a lick ofpaint the whole place looked as though it hadn't been touched for 40years. Pool was full of grit and dust floating on the surface. Even atnz$120 a night it was too expensive. Dismal and depressing.

    Can't complain about location though.Although as described and photographed, the room looked more basic inreality. The view to the side of the next door restaurant car park &rubbish skips. The sound of the next door restaurant mega extractor fanand air-conditioning detracted from the peacefulness of the Lake view.
