The place was convenient and clean but the rooms were very spartan . We were in Room 17 which had concrete stairs in front of our patio door . This was strange and not ideal. The people were great . They also run the tour to the White Island which was spectacular,

We stayed in a purpose built cabin, it had everything we needed, the walk in shower was brilliant and the bed was really comfortable. We had a dedicated parking space right outside and space to sit outside in the evening. The staff were also really friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend

Room was really well presented, clean and tidy. A great space for business or leisure. Also had a neat cafe onsite, a bonus if you enjoy a good coffee to kick start the day. I loved the location as it was a great place to walk to town or check out the happenings on the wharf. Walking distance to restaurants...

Reasonable price. Extra for continental breakfast that was just okay. But you stay here to take the ferry to White Island across the street which is run from the hotel so very convenient. They have laundry facilities you can use.
