Cloudy Stars

Unfortunately on the night we went there was cloud cover which was completely out of the companies control, however they adapted well into a vr tour of the sky as it would have been on a clear night. Moreover, once we went to the hotpools our guide was still able to point out the stars that were beginning to shine through the clouds and gave us lots of stories about culture, space and space missions. Very knowledgeable. I really enjoyed the evening even though it was cloudy.

Enjoyed all facilities and services

The weather wasn't its best due to the cloudy sky but with the hot and cold drinks, the thick blankets to keep us warm when outside on the telescope, the VR experience to teach us more on the stars and soaking in the hot pool of chlorine water while our guide was pointing out the stars and explaining, I think they did their best to educate us and keep us entertained. Had a try on the drying machine in the changing room too, didn't know such a thing existed. Honestly, I preferred this to Mt John Observatory with Dark Sky Reserve. Would have been Fantastic if not for the clouds, which is not within their control!

Not for a cloudy night

Knowledgeable and friendly presenters. Not their fault cloud came along at inconvenient moments. A large group (29) meant I always felt I could only have a quick peek in the telescopes. In the end, an expensive soak in a lovely hot pool. Could have been different on a better weather night.

About as many stars as I saw...

DO NOT BOOK THIS IF THERE IS ANY POSSIBILITY OF CLOUDS! There was a chance of clouds but everything on their website and the people we spoke to there said the experience wouldn’t be hindered if clouds were present… They lied, we shouldn’t have believed them. The hot pools were bad and the VR experience was somehow worse. The information within the VR experience was just wrong at points and it’s age was incredibly apparent, the visuals were depressing and it droned on and on to the point of me taking it off and answering texts instead. There was zero refund or any rescheduling, I feel like stargazing should show us stars and they shouldn’t have mislead us, saying the experience as still worth it.
