We enjoyed our stay here so much. It was so welcome after hiking for 5 days. The room was spacious & had everything you need. The staff were very helpful & accommodating. 5min walk to centre of town & incredibly quiet. Definitely recommend.

There were 4 of us traveling through NZ and we could have put 4 more people comfortably in this suite. It was a separate building with covered parking, in a perfect location for walking to town. Well stocked kitchen and a great living dining area....More
