We booked a private pool online via the day before and received confirmation of our booking within the hour. Unfortunately, the following afternoon we turned up 30minutes before our allotted time of 2.30pm and were told that the private pools were fully booked! The woman at reception responded as if this was our fault for not double checking if our booking still stood, despite us producing the confirmation letter and the fact the money had been taken from us. Apparently nobody had checked 'the system' since the day before and so our booking did not go through, it would have been nice to have received warning of this via phonecall or email before making our way to the hot pools. We were very disappointed when we arrived to be turned away in this manner, as we had planned our day around this activity.

Absolutely glorious so hope to take my daughter and family down for her birthday at the end of August. We pass quite often on our way down to Haast so it's a great stop over. Staff so lovely and friendly so couldn't ask for more. A wonderful retreat for anyone!! Thank you
