Had a nights stay here was wonderful. Spotless room, bed was amazingly comfortable, kitchen had an oven, of which we could cook a full roast dinner. The lovely manager and his family on site were a delight. It was a bit of a walk into the town at night, but definately do able. Would love to stay again soon.

Lovely welcome and shown to our room. Room clean and tidy. Large room and bathroom. We did have ants in the room on the surface near to a he mirror. This property is outside of the town and you do need transport unless you have the time and energy for a long walk. There is a communal lounge and communal outside areas. Unfortunately the electric went down on the morning of departure; no fault of the hotel. Breakfast was not as it should have been because of the lack of electricity. Cereal, fruit etc. Did manage to get a coffee though.

Booked an en suite room which was as described. Good sized with tea/coffee facility,fridge etc .En suite good with plenty towels.
Room looked out onto well maintained garden.quiet and peaceful.
T V service a bit limited (Sky upgrade would be good)
Staff welcoming and friendly, continental breakfast included in price and full breakfast available at an extra cost.
A wee bit out of town, so taxi/uber or drive to centre . overall a pleasurable stay.

Great place for our three night stay. A polite helpful welcome, and a great room, with king/queen bed, sofa, kitchenette and bathroom. All very good. A 10 minute walk to the beach and then another 15 minutes to the wharf. And of course the dog was very welcome for $10 extra per night. All good.

Very quiet this time of year, basic room, the fridge froze everything in it overnight, the person at reception was ok but not much information given. The place is too far from town. Bed was good, it’s a clean place but if you want to experience the area stay at hahei beach or Whitianga central
