  • It's location is excellent

    It's location is excellent. The large surrounding garden an unexpected bonus. It fitted 4 of us in very well. We loved the walks at Manapouri and of course it was ideal for boat to Doubtful Sounds. Freeview TV box needs a thump!

  • The cottage is conveniently located and looks nice from the outside

    The cottage is conveniently located and looks nice from the outside. The inside however is a different story. We were very disappointed by the poor conditions of the furniture. The beds are in urgent need of some new mattresses and the kitchen chairs are covered with paint spots. The outdoor furniture was so dirty, we did not even consider sitting on it. The cottage needs a good overall makeover and we did not feel comfortable here. Would not recommend staying here until some work has been done.

    Owner/manager responds:

    I'm really sorry you weren't happy at Classic. As a budget home some things are most definitely a little older than others. I provide a clean home with fresh, clean, frequently ironed linen. A recently renovated bathroom and a good sound base at an extremely fair rate. Scrubbing outdoor chairs on the list of things to do - fair comment regarding outdoor furniture. Please check out my webpage where more modern and less simple homes are listed that may appeal more for you. Many thanks. :)
