I love this place! Gorgeous two story apartment with French feel, awesome location! Such a nice place to spend a weekend and not feel like your trapped in a tiny hotel. We had an awesome weekend here, can't wait to go back!!

It's hard to review this apartment without bias for the town, as we had some big disappointments in Akaroa. (We went there specifically for the Black Cat Cruises dolphin swim, but the dolphins didn't want to come out on our trip and we weren't given the chance to book another cruise to try again.) Reception is confusing, as there is...

Upon booking, we requested Unit 27 for three nights over Easter, which was confirmed and secured with my credit card. On arrival, we had to collect key from Tresori Motels. We were given room 32 (with a view of the public toilet block); the very rude woman at Tresori said that the occupants of unit 27 wanted to stay on...

Lovely,spacious and clean, which are well equipted with everything you need. Two different managers in different places to check in, but are very close to each other but may pay to ask which place you need to check in before you get there. Our room over looked the pier which was nice but we had a noisey night with some...

We visited Akaroa in December, booked a 2 bedroom unit via booking.com. The check-in was the only trick part as we did not know where to go, after a few rounds around the block we found out that we had to check in at the Tresori Motor Lodge. Once we got our keys everything was perfect, we loved the unit,...

This was our second visit to Akaroa and this time we stayed at the 'busy' end. We stayed for two nights in a corner apartment managed by Tresori Motor Lodge. The apartment was spacious and light with a small balcony to sit out on, but the height of the greenery growing around the balcony meant that there was no view...

Our apartment was on two levels with a spacious lounge/dining room on the lower level, with two bedrooms and bathroom on the upper level. The lounge room had a balcony with a fine view of Akaroa Harbour. The apartment is well equipped, clean and comfortable. One thing to be aware of is that these apartments have two separate managers and...

This is a lovely little shabby chic studio with a king 4 poster bed in a great location, across from the water and handy to restaurants and bars. Nice little courtyard. They had done some maintenance since our last visit which was nice to see

duplex style 2 story apartment complex - had a harbor view - comfortable, convenient and easy walking distance to all of the local restaurants, shops - the kitchenette area was helpful in preparing for a Banks Peninsula walk. Beds reasonable (1 queen, 2 ingles) bathroom modest size - all very clean, staff were very helpful and friendly
