This was our first stay at a self contained apartment in NZ and it was where we experienced the least level of satisfaction and service.
Firstly the apartment does not have an office onsite and we didn't realise receive any instruction as to how to access the apartment. When we tried to call the owner, get phone was diverted to voicemail. It was at least half an hour before we heard back.
Other disappointments included, bike as mentioned on website was not in usable condition, only 3 towels given for 4 people, dining area is not usable due to lack of heating, had to get our own toilet rolls, not a scheduled stop for ski shuttle, refused access to games room in the lodge when we needed entertainment for the kids on one rainy day,
All other self contained unit we stayed in after pinedale, included pick up and drop off from our coaches' stops and not once did we need to self supply any essential items.
A couple of pluses are there is a washing machine and dishwasher in the apartment.
