We stayed here on our third night in NZ, as part of our 37 day 4WD tour. I had been very ill the day before, with a bug caught from a Virgin Australia in flight curry. The night we stayed here I was feeling somewhat delicate, and tired after the full day drive up from Auckland, in a strange car. Our hosts, Mr & Mrs McKenzie were delightful and very helpful. They took one look at us both and could see how worn out we were, what with the Australian cough caught in Sydney and my digestive upset. We were given a lovely room with a side view over the water and an adjacent bathroom. With car parked we set off for a light supper, at an hotel recommended by the McKenzie’s within walking distance from their B&B. We slept like troopers in a well-appointed room and was greeted next day with a wonderful and varied breakfast. It was certainly a stopover we’ll remember well and would firmly recommend it to other touring travellers like us.
