    University trip”

    I came to attend a conference at the university. This was very handy - 10 minutes on foot. The amenities were very good and gave good value. The breakfast was sufficient but basic - could have done with some muesli and marmalade or jam, and perhaps some spreadable margarine/butter. However there are lots of good breakfast places on the streets nearby.

    Mixed experience at best”

    Shower and breakfast were nice, but the room was cold and dark, the kitchenette consisted of a kettle only and when I asked for milk for a coffee, I was told to go buy my own at the dairy (with no fridge to store it). The place was difficult to get hold off as emails were ignored and a promised call back never made. The internet only worked periodically, mostly I had no wifi. I wouldn't stay there again I don't think.

    Acceptable”

    The only reason we decided to stay at this B & B was because of the glowing reviews. Our first disappointment was regarding the bed, which was sagging in the middle and the cause of continual back ache during our stay. During our 4 night stay the towels were not changed once nor was the bed linen. The only desk light next to the bed was not working and the television did not work properly. Carpet in the bedroom was dirty and needed a good clean. Basin in the bathroom was not firmly fixed on the pedestal, plus there was a child's potty left next to the toilet. Fixture for the toilet roll holder half out of the wall. Rarely saw the manager and not once did he bother to ask us how things were.

    Above average”

    As long as you don't expect a true B&B this building has a different charm. We never saw a host with a one night stay. It's self check in, a piece of paper and the key with your name on it. Don't ask about breakfast, never saw anyone but it is not included in the price, so we didn't bother. Price was fair and location is among many other roadside motels. Would not recommend beyond a quick one night road warrior stay.

    The room was okay for a night. The Breakfast Room was fitting for such an old character home and the owner had gone to some effort to include authentic period touches.

    Comfortable city hotel”

    Parking is free but only 3 lots on the property, you have to find a roadside space otherwise. There is a lounge area to make tea and coffee. Room small, but clean and comfortable (bathroom quite big though). Breakfast served in a very nice dining room: bread, cereal, mixed fruit, muffins. Wi-Fi is unlimited. Cost was a bit more compared to other places in NZ, though I'm not sure if it's timing or location reasons.

    A lovely little B & B”

    We received a very warm welcome. The host was very helpful in directing us to activities that were of interest to us. The bedroom was very nice, very clean and comfortable. It is, however, facing a main road so it can get rather noisy with traffic, but overall we had a good sleep. Nice breakfast: - toast, cereals, yoghurt, jams, spreads, fruit, and lovely freshky baked muffins. Yum ! We would stay here again.
