We were in the process of moving inter-island from Kerkeri to Greymouth and stopped in here on the way. Really nice cosy rooms, well set out, nice furniture, quiet and peaceful, friendly owners and most of it pet friendly. We had out 2 housecats with us and they accommodated them too which made the move alot easier.

Great hosts, unit and surroundings were nice and provided a relaxed atmosphere and a well positioned base for what we wanted to do. Having a small dog with us was no issue and we would happily stay again. Recommended!

I stayed with a small dog. The facilities are clean and tidy and well sited - close to the lake for walks and to the centre for dining etc. This is the second time I have stayed with a dog and would recommend it to others.

Comfortable unit in a quiet location a few minutes by car to town centre. Hosts welcoming. Enjoyed an drink in the evening sitting at the back of the units in a nice patio area. Kitchen well supplied and walk in shower and bathroom satisfactory. Large TV to watch at the end of the day.
