Good sized comfortable apartment with good facilities including laundry. Some have good views. We had the two bedroom apartment which has the entrance is through the garage which opens with a remote control. From here there is no lock on the door to the apartment, not sure that is secure. The level of cleaning was not good when we were there, there were cobwebs all along one wall and we had to vacuum when we got there. We were told it was a new cleaning company and they would look into it.

A few stops had been suggested by various people, the first was Knight's Point where there is a seal colony, this turned out to be a lookout only and the seals are small dots in the distance so we moved on. The next stop was Ship Creek where it is possible to see Hector’s dolphins which are the smallest dolphins. It was a lovely beach but it …
One drawback of hostels is you don't always control who's in your room. Five of us from our bus got a room together, and when we went upstairs to put our stuff down, there was already a middle aged man in there (not great for a youth backpacker hostel) and he had the heat off and the door wide open (it's about 35 degrees outside). And it went downhill from there. He went out that night and came home at about 3am without his key, banging on the ...
... washing automatic door opening and locking all to the soothing sounds of piped music. I'm sorry but give me a standard cesspit dunny any day. Carrying on to the Glacier access road and as most people like ourselves kitted themselves up for the adventurous 2 hour mountain hike up to the base of the glacier. Unfortunately Health & Safety had been involved; the walk was along the bedrock off the alluvial valley up to the slightly ...
... 5.7 km from town which wasn't ideal. The company have three sites and we were by far the furthest from town but I guess that's what choosing a ' bargain' rate gets you! So into town to wander, spot the hostel on the Main Street where I'd stayed previously and would have done again but for the lack of car parking! We enjoyed fish and chips- yes Helen again as we like them! -sitting in the sun by the lake watching the world go by. We caught the early ...
... here so it's not too quiet. Since travelling the South Island we now have a small little group of us, as we are all doing the same journey together in the same amount of time, and it's lush. They are all so really nice and it's good fun. We spend the afternoon just out on the floaty thing in the middle of the lake, jumping off it and chilling. We then decided to go out for a curry in the evening like a big family, we are too cute!! xxxx
