Poor”

The staff were lovely. The spa pool was nice and the complimentary vege soup were a really nice touch.
People were partying outside until after midnight, room was freezing and the heater had this loud clicking noise that happened all through the night . Hardly slept at all. Shower was filthy.

Lovely place to stay! Great...”

Great room, comfy bed, light and sunny. Great location easy safe parking. The free soup at night was a bonus, too!
We were excited that there was a hot tub&#47;spa pool there, but unfortunately the hours it was open were a bit limiting, especially if spending the day out and about.

Loves the rustic kiwi feel. You can tell a lot of effort goes into running the place and the staff are very friendly. Seems like it would be a great place for families and young travellers alike.
