Mr. Happy first night in New Zealand
It was what I expected, simple and clean. The room was a good size to house the two single beds, which were comfortable. Big clean shower room. The staff were polite and helpful. Located on a busy road, so some traffic noise.

Nice unit.
Nice and quiet room.. Room quick to warm up on a cold night. Comfy bed up stairs in a loft area. Parking a little tight for larger vehicles.
