              Very clean and quite room and friendly services

              May be more hot breakfast option. We don't want to pay $12 or $17 for just bread with jam, or muesli.

              5.0

              It was quiet

              We traveled nz for 3 months and stayed at various accomodations and this was the least value and it was the most we paid anywhere.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Good location and value for money. Very friendly staff. Breakfast included and was reasonable.

              Can get too noisy - could hear people's conversations in the next room.

            • Single

              The 3 things I have rated as 'Excellent' above. I don't wish to complain in any way, shape or form but if you would like to pass on constructive criticism I provide the following: The Location is peaceful however, when you are in the room where I was noise from other guests is noticeable. The glass screen door when you enter that building is noticeably heard rolling back and forth (could they perhaps quieten the door some how maybe with CRC) the sliding doors on the unit bathroom doors and the other room with the fridge in it can be heard from room to room. The cleaning is immaculate well done and the decor of the units have obviously been updated and is only let down slightly by the outdated showers and this attributes to the noise with the shower recess wall and shub linings makes the water flowing sounds clearly heard from room to room. The management are lovely people.

              mingled in above - not complaints just feedback - I would recommend this as a great place to stay and have come away even thinking about the possibility of a company conference there.

              Very friendly owners, very clean and modern rooms and facilities, nice quiet location off the main roads. Quite good value for money. Definitely would stay there again or recommend to others!

              Very friendly hotel staff & owners relaxed and friendly atmosphere

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              Spacious and quiet with well maintained grounds and facilities. Helpful staff.

              Parking bays were a bit squeezy.

            • Couple
              8.2

              clean and very nice people!!

              only one thing would be no fly screen in toilet so there might be moth attracted by the light..

            • Older travelers
              5.4

              Tranquil setting

              Having stayed at several hotels in New Zealand on our trip we did not feel that this hotel was value for money.
