Dear Russell, it was great to have you back for a 3rd time! We empathise regards the sleep ins as we experienced the same, however given that was a rare occurrence we expect any future visits you make to be a lot quieter and more about those lazy holidays and afternoon siestas....

On our recent trip to NZ we spent 4 days in Paihai at the Anchorage Motel. Modern,clean and comfortable. Only a short walk to the main town and pier where all trips leave from. Very good restaurant next door where we indulged on a few occasions. Would highly recommend this motel.
