They have 3 off street car parks but you can also park on the street outside

Hi, I notice room description says 2 persons max? We are traveling with our 3.5 year old son. Could a small bed be laid or or could we even throw him in bed with us? Looking at Saturday 4 June for 1 night. Will be on the way back from Paihia roadtrip. Also will parking be ok to find as seems some mixed reports for car parking. cheers! Paul

"All rooms are good since it's a dead end. Ask for the upstairs room, number 5, it's GIANT!"
"Yellow Suite was a separate building of 2 suites set away, Quiet private, King Bed, Couch, LCD TV, Dining suite, Fridge, cooker, Microwave"
"I would recommend booking outside of the main building, if that is available."
"ask for the biggest and best room in the main hotel/house"
"Stayed in Rm 4 & liked it - private deck into garden. Not super large though if you have a number of larger bags / suitcases."
