A fantastic 1 night stay. Room was exactly as pictured, spacious, clean and cosy with great ammenities. Nice and quiet location, with comfortable beds and a cute private deck to sit on. Loved the native West Coast plants and trees, we like being in a forest. Service on check in and check out was very friendly and took the time to advise on recommendations in the area. Located right around the corner (150m) from the Tatare Tunnel walk with glow worms, highly recommend! As well as close walking distance to restaurants, bars, wild life centre, hot pools. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again next time! Thank you for the great stay.

A very clean and comfortable room at a very reasonable price. An easy walk to restaurants. This was a very quiet location and I am sure the views would be stunning if the rain had stopped!!! The room had everything you needed for a stopover.

Our room was warm, great shower, a comfortable king bed and clean. Couldn’t use the small outdoor deck as was cold and wet. We stayed 2 nights and it was fine. Did some laundry there which was helpful. Don’t expect too much.

A lovely wee setup and very friendly and helpful staff. A great place to stay with multiple couples as you each have your own room setup in a standalone bulding, but there is room to come together on the wee cottage decks. A great deal too.

Our family of 3 stayed at cottage number 7 for 4 nights. I liked that we had allocated car parking right outside our unit. We were given a Queen bed and a Single bed in the simply-designed room, which worked perfectly for our accommodation needs. The room was cosy, with double-glazed windows and doors, and with a fly net over the bathroom window. Staff were happy to change our linen and towels on request in addition to doing so on a schedule every alternate day. I liked the commitment to sustainability where soap in the kitchenette and bathroom were topped up in the refillable containers (rather than supplying disposable small containers for soap). They also provided sufficient towels, and had a helpful policy for customer-driven towel replacement. There’s a coin-operated laundry (washing machine and dryer) that we used to our satisfaction. We felt well looked after during our stay there. Kudos to the staff and management.
