Room was very clean. However, two issues for us were that one small room had a damp smell so we just closed it off and it didn’t bother us. Our son has asthma so that room wouldn’t work for him but fortunately there were several rooms and other beds to choose from. The other issue was the heater needed cleanin as you could see the grime on it. This was unfortunate as the rest of the room was spotless but our eyes were drawn to the smudges on the heater as soon as we entered the space.

Great spot - cabin on the beachfront. Lovely hosts & very welcoming. The Tavern nearby was good for evening meals.

Good Location But No WiFi
The place is a little hard to find but it is located near trekking trails and sights. Although it is on the water front, we cannot see the water from the room. The WiFi does not work at all.

The hotel was damp. Conditions were fair, but nothing special. Was the least friendly hotel we stayed at in new zealand.
