Lovely place to stay but shocking customer service, not friendly at all and not willing to help out in any way, hard to deal with, we were very taken back at how rude a front of house person with no manners could be on the front desk greeting people. Wouldnt recommend if you wanted friendly customer service.

My husband and two kids stayed a night in apartment 4. We loved the fact that we had a double garage to park and keep our car safe. The apartment was immaculate! clean, tidy & decorated modern, with a ridiculous amount of space! I couldn't believe how big it was especially cause it was priced at the same amount as...

I stayed here with 3 other girlfriends for the weekend. The location is okay it's close to bars and lots of cafes restaurants and a short drive to town. However some may find the port and all the containers an eye saw. The train passes by quite regularly so can be quite noisy aswell. What was most off putting was...

My teen sons voted this the best stay of our New Zealand trip. Super clean, spacious, and with a view to die for over Hawke's Bay. Great kitchen (although a new spatula and spoon wouldn't hurt...) and two large bathrooms made for a very comfortable experience. It is upstairs but has a lift to make luggage handling easier. Great little...

We had the 3 bedroom apartment on 2nd floor. This exceeded our expectations, the view across to the port and out to the bay was magic. Clean and spacious the ensuite had a spa bath and shower over. This could prove troublesome for older folk whom are unable to get in and out of the bath. The 2nd room had...

The apartment has a big living space and looks out over the bay which is a beautiful view. The 2 bedrooms are ample size, the third is smaller. It's a good place for a family or couples sharing. Two parking spaces make sharing easier too. Items in flat are adequate but limited to numbers staying so 6 of everything no...

We stayed in apartment 2. The photos provided for Booking.com are very misleading. The view from the room is represented to be a fabulous bay view when in fact the apartment is directly opposite and looks straight into the port (as shown by the photos below). There are large trucks entering and exiting the port directly opposite the apartment all...

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. It was good having our own carshed. The view was fantastic. The apartment was OK. It was tidy inside. But the balcony floor could have been cleaned. The rooms were really a good size and the lounge and dining spacious. Really good to have the apartment close to town.

Spacious 3 bedroom apartment on 3 levels- relatively pricey and looking tired- appears to be things missing from kitchen area- toaster needs replacing s had to hold down to get to work and only holds 2 pieces. Major issue is noise right opposite port entrance and train tracks- large trucks with containers start rumbling in very early in morning -...
