Das Hotel war ideal gelegen, ausserhalb des (kommerziellen und überlaufenen) Zentrums. Wunderschöne Bungalows mit viel Platz, bequem eingerichet, superkomfortable Betten. Als Extra gab es am Nachmittag ein süsses Gebäck, das in unserem Appartment abgestellt wurde. Ideale Startbasis für Ausflüge in die Umgebung.

The most expensive accommodation for our road trip around South Island. The facilities were lacking, particularly if you had all 9 beds full - you would not have been able to fit everyone into the living space at the same time. Great for accessibility needs but if you had more than four people it would be very cramped. A washer/dryer in the bath room would have been useful. The kitchen facilities were difficult to cook for four of us, the fridge would have been better if it was full size. A BBQ outside would have been nice to help with catering for us four. We expected a bit more for the price paid. The owner checked each evening to see if we were ok, which was great. Consumables were restocked each morning too which was great. We were nestled into the forest which was lovely being in the forest, and the heating was great for the spaces. The free glow worm tour was also great.
