Liked: The staff were incredibly nice and very helpful, and the location was perfect - just far enough out of the centre to be fairly quiet at night, but directly across the street from Lake Wakatipu and a short walk (10 minutes or less) anywhere in the town centre.

Disliked: No toilet in the common area, so you had to go back to your room and either take your things with you or entrust them to someone else in the common area. Kitchen gets a bit cramped and it can be difficult to find space in the fridges.

Liked: This place was awesome! I had a great time! The staff was very friendly and helpful every step of the way. The location had a great view away from the main drag but not too far of a walk if you want to party. I would highly recommend this place!

Liked: The staff were very lovely! Even before getting to Bumbles as a guest, I emailed them queries about booking activities and not only were their responses prompt but they also booked the activities for me (special shout out to 'Malin' who was lovely)! At the end of our stay, we were close to missing our bus to Christchurch and a staff member was very helpful in calling the taxi for us and standing outside to help move our stuff.

Disliked: nothing.
