If you need a clean, friendly,value for money place to stay, before or after the Ferry Crossing, this is it.7 minutes from the Ferry.The receptionists were helpful and very friendly, we arrived as strangers and left as friends.

We stayed for 3 nights while visiting family. Adequate comes to mind. The room was compact but well equipped however our room suffered from road noise to the front and constant music from a yard at the rear. Host helpful with early departure. Easy on site parking and convenient for Wellington.
