My daughter & I had booked a twin room and requested and room with garden access as we knew the rooms were quite small and wanted a bit of breathing space. We were therefore disappointed to be shown to a room on the first floor with a view of the carpark and busy main road. The second room we were... More

Winging out way up from Wellington we found this place in trip advisor - we just wanted a nice simple room with some good facilities and boy did we find it! Great rooms, restaurant with full buffet dinner, and a great bar even with a big TV for sports lovers. So close to the public walkways and beach. Totally recommend!

The hotel has lots of parking which was great as I had driven down from Auckland. Check in with smooth and easy. I was in a King Studio and the room was very spacious and very clean. Loved the fact that they had Sky Movies too! Marbles is definitely a must do, I had the buffet dinner on my first... More

I stayed for business and for one-night only. The rooms are spacious, clean, and tidy, and the staff is courteous. The attached restaurant provided us a good breakfast with a wide selection. There is also complimentary bicycle (and helmet) hire, as well as use of the gym and pool around 10 minutes bike ride away. WiFi works fine in my... More

My Company based it's annual Conference at The Devon, and I loved the place,( though a bit of a rabbit Warren when using different spaces for Conference forums), My room was a lovely double with a HUGE tv and loads of light. Situated on the ground floor with little private outdoor space, it had the other advantage of easy access... More

Our party of 13 stayed and enjoyed the huge well presented buffet dinner, drinks by the fire, and hot spa. Friendly helpful staff were just awesome! Well done :) It was quite busy so worth booking in advance, especially for dinner. Expect yummy well cooked and different dishes and desserts!

Was lucky to get a room as the hotel was packed but reception did an excellent job of getting people seen quickly and efficiently. The hotel itself is alright but I did not think it excelled in any area. You need a car to explore or one of the hotels bikes, great beaches nearby and basicly offers a good place... More

Just stayed the one night. Check in was fast and friendly. Requested a downstairs room when i booked, but i did not get one upon arrival. Rooms are quite small, but nicely furnished and the bed is super comfortable, which was a bonus, i find most hotels do not have comfortable beds. Bathrooms are tiny. I did not have dinner,... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night for business. The reception staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are simple but very clean and functional. I slept very well in the bed, pillow and blanket was all to my liking. When it's windy and rainy, one can hear the weather very well in the room, but it didn't... More
