Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   We stay at Wairakei once a month through winter/spring for motorcross. The staff are always so wonderful and helpful and the check-in/check-out process is always fast. We have a 7 year old and a 4 year old and they love the complex - especially the hot pools! We are always made to feel welcome and nothing is ever a problem for the staff. The buffet night on Saturday's is what our whole family look forward to as the food is always exceptional.

Review:   Fantastic service. Lovely rooms. Prefect for a family getaway as the rooms are well set up and there are lots of activities on site to do. We booked our a conference room for big family dinner, only down side was that we had to get our drinks from the busy bar, otherwise lovely buffet dinner in perfect size room.

Review:   The property proved to be great for the event I attended. Their meeting room was good and the meal that followed was excellent. The room was well appointed, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. I'll definitely stay there again.

Review:   I like this place as it had a cosy feel. Good restaurant and bar. Lovely hot swimming pools. Has an ageless feel about it. If you can get a room on the ground floor opposite the pool you can walk straight out to the pool from your room. Very helpful reception. Lots a of amenities fitting the billing of resort but don't expect the earth. Old style and laid back!

Review:   Rooms were tidy enough, but dated. Passageways and service areas worn. Great heated pool. Dining service very slow - over an hour between entree and mains made us all feel very flat. Plenty of staff, just poor service. Food was fine
