this place was good value for money but fairly basic...like an old kiwi batch. The noise from roosters and dogs took some adjusting to overnight. There werent enough blankets but once we asked for them they were provided. It was serviced most days. Good place if money tight as you can cook your own meals but the gas oven was... More

We visited Rarotonga for a week, during a 4 week holiday to New Zealand from Ireland. Our group consisted of 4 adults (2 couples) and a baby. We were met at the airport by the owner, Ingrid, who was surprised and said she was expecting 4 girls and no baby (despite replying directly to an email to confirm that the... More

This accommodation is perfect for those on a budget. The rooms are cleaned and fresh towels provided every day. Ingrid would often leave fruit in my room and said to help myself from her huge orchid as much as I wanted. Airport pick up was no problem although you definitely need to let her know you need a ride. Town... More

Also the place and the service is a big disaster. We arrive late in the nigth and they said that we will have a transfer but ther was no one at the airport to pickup us to the hotel and we need to look for another one. The place is really ver old and all the rooms were plenty of... More

Stayed one night, rested in Ingrid's lovely garden the day after. Excellent place to rest after a night at Trader Jacks and well within walking distance to town. Ingrid is a very amenable host and helps wherever she can.

Great place to stay on a budget. This place was very clean! you could eat off the floors. The host Ingrid picked us up from the airport with smiles ear to ear. I read the previous awful review on this place, They must have stayed somewhere else. There are no centipedes on the cooks and no poisonous animals or bugs!... More

Arrived after midnight from the airport and realised it was a bad choice. The room was tacky, dark, unclean, and zoo like. But as we were due to leave the next day we figured, for one night, how bad could it be? Sleeping was difficult because of the strong musty smell coming from the mattress. At 5am, my wife woke...

I chose this place on the basis of online information. I had never been to a Pacific islands other than Hawaii. I had 5 days in the Cook Islands, chosen because the airline agent said it was a pretty place. Ingrid met me at the airport, and left me at the door of a tiny apartment - very middle class.... More

The lady that we dealt with was incredibly inappropriate and rude during our short stay at this budget hotel. I don't ever think that I've had a worse experience at a hotel, and we have travelled extensively.
