For the price I expected more. A shower over spa bath that had no shower curtain was pretty average. I went to check out and the girl said she would email my receipt but it has never arrived.

We paid almost FOUR times the normal nightly rate because there was a concert on in the area. Totally disgusted that Bluewater Hotel has taken advantage because of the concert. It is nothing like a luxury hotel as stated but a very average motel. Very noisy room next to the fish processing factory which goes all night.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. The whole of Hawke's Bay was booked out for this concert with all hotels charging higher than usual rates. We feel that we have kept our rates as competitive as possible. Kind regards from the team at Bluewater Hotel
