Very well appointed apartment.

Pros: It had all that we would desire. (It is an apartment not a hotel!). It also had a fantastic view from the apartment.
Cons: All was OK
Location: What a question! Akaroa is Akaroa!!
Once we got in, and I believe it was Wotif's fault we had a problem there, all was superb. The place had all the mod ons we needed. They all functioned well and the place was clean. After we left we realised we had left our anoraks in the cupboard. At the time we were driving north from Christchurch. Contact with the owner resulted in her kindly sending them on ( we paid for the postage of course) and the day was saved. All in all a very satisfactory stay. Note it is an apartment. The question above concerning staff has only been filled in as this review would be rejected if I did not put something!!! The only'staff' was the cleaner who did her job as required. No comment.
