We were a sports team at the lodge for a whole week. The first night I cooked the stove element blew up. It was not replaced and I had to endure the inconvenience of cooking in another of our units for our large group for the remainder of the week. Some of the units had new stoves but a number (including ours) did not - ovens did not work in at least two of the other units we had hired.
Despite us being there a week, we had to specially request that floors be vacuumed and the bathrooms cleaned, and even after this the job was not properly done.
The spa pool water was murky and smelled unpleasant. It looked like it hadn't been properly treated in a while.
This establishment looks like the owners are coasting and trading solely on their convenience to Takapuna and surrounds. For moderately priced accommodation I have had a far better experience elsewhere. It's high time the owners put the customer first I think.More
