From the moment we arrived the owners seemed determined to make our stay enjoyable. They took us to the apartment and very helpful and chatty. The apartment was excellent. There were some lovely touches, salt and pepper and a great selection of teas and coffee, even plunger coffee. The bed was enormous! We were really impressed . Easy to live... More

Fine for our one night stay. One or two minor gripes: The pool needed cleaning, the breakfast was a little on the expensive side, and there was no spare toilet roll. The room was spacious and immaculate.

A typical NZ motel --- comfortable big bed; fridge; microwave and well appointed bathroom. Clean and well maintained. Good off street parking. Decor's a bit boring but overall an okay place for a night's stay.

Super sized rooms, with a gorgeous king sized bed, lots of pillows and blankets. The kitchenette and lounge area had interesting cooking facilities, but I managed to wrangle the portable cooktop. Nice sized dining table, lounge, tub chair and coffee table, very much a home environment. I just loved the spa bath and enjoyed every moment of that comfort. Free... More

We decided to shelter from Cyclone Pam on the West Coast and ended up in Dargaville where we were very pleased to find this hotel. We had a spacious room with all amenities that we needed and enjoyed our stay here as well as finding some quite good restaurants to eat at in town close by.

Watch where you park your car as the driveways are a bit narrow. Our room was very spacious with a spa bath which is a treat after being on the road for a long time with the occassional holiday park thrown in. Free wifi through the TV set. If it drops out the friendly owner will come and reset it... More

Peaceful, quiet, clean and tidy. The staff were pleasant and helpful. 15 minutes walk into town which is fine. We were in a unit which opened to the swimming pool, it was nice sitting next to the pool reading a book. Recommended.

Nice clean rooms with good furniture. Quiet, and just off the main road. Has Wi-Fi in each room, but we did not use it. Has two entrances one being onto the main shopping street which is handy. We would definitely stay again. Thanks.
