We were also very grateful for the small changes (removal of rugs) made prior... More

Quality tea, coffee, olive oil, vinegar, a bottle of red & shower gels from the region is a lovely touch for guests. Plenty of fluffy towels. Washer... More

Well placed for Vineyards tours, 4 in the same road if memeory serves me well !! Quality fittings and furnishings made our stay a memeorabkle experience. Close to Havelock North, Hastings and Napier and you can hear the sea from the room. Would certainly visit again next time were in that part of the world.
