The base pumping through the beds and rooms is a joke. They all talk about it and its so unnecessary and I don't see why its needed. If you're up early the next day (i was doing Milford Sound) and don't want to drink...you cannot sleep until the music and especially the base stops at about 1.30. Not needed. When speaking to the guy at desk, he said he would ask to turn it down and nothing happened. Not a great stay. ALSO: CHARGING 2% CARD FEE ON EVERYTHING IS A DISGRACE!!

Hi Lee, thanks for letting us know about your stay at Base. It's a shame to see that the bar noise kept you up, I do apologise for this. We at Base do make it clear we're a property with a bar attached, however I will bring the bass to the attention of our GM. The 2% surcharge is due to cover fees incurred when processing international credit cards. This is standard practice throughout the pacific. We do inform customers of the charge, resulting in the option to pay cash. Regards, J.Smith
