I'm starting to get confused with the days and time! That's a bit of a worry when we're only 10 days into the trip!
Today, we slept in until about 8.30am which is the latest so far! Every other day since we've been here has been 7.00am-7.30am... Must be finally getting used to the time zone!
We left …
After a short 3 hour flight (Maud was expecting it to be 6 hours) from Christchurch we landed in a new country, Australia and the capital of Victoria, Melbourne. After the usual formalities at passport control it was nice to be greeted by the happy smiling face of Lauren Wills, and without bump as baby Jemima was now 3 months old. After packing all …

Right now we are all enjoying a drink at our retreat before heading out for dinner at the "Kookaburro Wine Bistro"--Brian is doing a crossword, Christine is reading her E Book, Allan is reading the menu to decide on tonight's meal, Wendy is writing this blog, Jan is reading the paper and Gloria is doing nothing which according to Jan was "vacationing at it's best".

This hotel is in a good location, about 300m from the sea. There's a lovely boardwalk along the beachfront.
The staff at the hotel were fantastic, we could ask anything and not feel like we were annoying them! Without exception they were all very friendly.
Our room was nice and spacious. I think the marketing that states that all rooms have sea-views is a bit of an exaggeration. In our room, if we stood on the balcony, we could see just a little bit of sea over top of the trees out on one corner. I'm sure there are other rooms though, that have just spectacular views.
There are geothermal mineral pools at the hotel, as they are situated on top of a geothermal acquifer. The pools are great but once again the marketing lacks a bit, as there is a cost involved of using the spa pools, which is $25 per person. If you were taking a family there, and didn't realise this, it could be an unexpectant big cost.
On the whole, the staff make this hotel... The rooms are fine, but just be aware of those couple of little things and you'll love it.
