Radio NZ gets the Hukas mixed up

Radio NZ reported (now removed):

The Huka Falls Resort is for sale, just months after New Zealand First leader Winston Peters claimed it was being sold to foreign buyers.

In February in an address to Greypower in Auckland, Mr Peters claimed that Prime Minister John Key had promised the buyers a smooth ride through the Overseas Investment Office process.

At the time, Huka Lodge said Mr Peters was not correct.

Land Information Minister Maurice Williamson also said the claims were not true.

The property is advertised for sale in The Dominion Post, with tenders due to close on 15 May. It was last sold in 2003.

The sale includes 3.8 hectares, buildings and the Huka Falls Resort conference centre and a cafe business. The advertisement says 27 of the 34 villas are leased to the business.

A big fail for . Huka Falls Resort is a different property to Huka Lodge.

The Huka Falls Resort is at 56 Huka Falls Road. The iconic Huka Falls Lodge is 271 Huka Falls Road. They’re not even that close to each other.

Rooms at HFR start at $135 a night.

Rooms at Huka Lodge starts at $1,386 per night.
