The location of this small motel, which only has two rooms and is in the back garden of a family house, could not be better. The place is just a two minute walk to the ferry. It is more like an AirBNB than a hotel/motel. The owners were very friendly and helpful. However, the units were quite dated and in need of work. The accommodation here is very different, and not up the standard we experienced over the rest of New Zealand. When we arrived the place was mostly clean but the fridge had obviously not been cleaned and had a half empty container of milk inside and crumbs everywhere. There was also the lid of a jar on the floor. The bed was really uncomfortable. One side of the bed was so badly sagging it was very hard to sleep in. In the bathroom the handles that open the windows had been removed and were lying on the sill. The shower was new and the water was hot.
