I'm really sorry to hear your experience with us was not satisfactory. We recently did some maintenance work which involved cutting down two of the trees next to the road.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small family run business who provide great value accommodation in Otaki. We are situated just a one hour drive from central Wellington and the Interisland ferry terminal. Our goal is to provide great value accommodation to local and international tourists at the same time as creating employment in Otaki.Otaki is a great place to grab a coffee on the way through to Wellington, or to do some discount shopping at one of the many retail stores. We love housing people visiting the region for weddings and family events. Many of our guests are Kiwis from different parts of New Zealand, but we love to meet international people as well. ... more   less
