    Totally unhappy about the stay. Owner has racial discriminations to Asians. Asians please be aware. We requested late check in after penguin colony but got owners hard wordings and judges on how long time we should use for our penguin show. Bad attitude she doubted Asians would have more people staying in a 2 people room secretly and warn us she will call police if we do. But we are actually ordering more rooms than we needed to. No hot water for shower at night! Two rooms both having icy water for shower only one room has hot water but water pressure is unbelievable low. Owners have lots of excuse on hot water due to our hair is long?! Only shoulder length my god!! Won't recommend this to anybody totally bad experience and while I went to other hotels in south island people are so nice!!
