We are sorry that you feel this way about your stay. Our Superior room category does not feature a view of the lake, which is what it sounds like you booked. Our Lakeview and Executive rooms feature beautiful views of the lake. Kind regards, Richard Arnold Luxury Curator

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you found our Lake Views excellent.

Booked the 1 bedroom superior apartment expecting lake view according to photos. However, when we checked in the view was blocked by the other building in front as they gave us the room on the bottom floor. After complaining to the reception staff, they offered an upgrade for extra $60NZD which was okay. However, the whole process took over 1 hour (just to change rooms!). That night, we asked for bathrobe and bowls (which were not in the room). We were told it should be around 20 minutes but did not receive it until 45 minutes after.. This hotel is definitely not worth the price you pay.

Thank you for your review. Please note that you booked a Superior Apartment which does not guarantee Lake and Mountain views. We offer all guests a choice to book either a lake view or superior room type. It is good to hear the team offered a solution to upgrade. All our apartments are fully furnished including fully stocked kitchenettes as well as bathrobes. Kind regards,
