"Good as gold"
Host was delightful and very helpful. Room was nice but located in path of airport so we got some low flying planes passing over, but none during sleeping hours.

Pleasant bright room.
Lovely hotel. Owner obtained tickets for our Water taxi for Abel Tasman walk....also shuttle to restaurant. Very helpful. Sky lights in room made it airy, but sun came up early, so may want lower level unit without sky lights if you're not an early riser.
