We stayed here with a family of 4. The rooms are small, but clean and reasonably modern. One annoying feature was the fact that there is no door between the second and master bedrooms. The pillows are very firm, but some people like that. The hotel motel is in between a main road and train line, but that wasn't a...

Greg was very accommodating, even when my travel partner needed reassuring about jumping into the cold ocean with 100 dolphins. The offer of a beach towel was going above and beyond, thank you Greg! Very comfortable beds, very cozy bathroom, great location and the ocean is right there. We enjoyed getting milk, because we were unaware of this New Zealand...

We stayed here in Dec 2015. Whilst the room exceeded our expectations and we had a nice view of the beach, the most impressive thing was the great customer service we received from the friendly lady at reception. I left my medication by mistake, and the lovely lady arranged for it to be couriered to our next destination. Much appreciated.

The rooms were more than we expected, travelling with our daughter we thought we were just going to share a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom. But we actually had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, which worked out fabulous. The rooms were spotlessly clean too.

Fantastic views from our room. Sound of the sea - perfect. Ask for room 21 or 18 as they have the best views. Very welcoming hosts. Very clean room and great shower. Private balcony. What's not to like?
