Much better than I imagined when I saw the ad in the AA Traveller book. Warm, sunny, and quiet room with a great view over the harbour. Friendly staff too. Restaurant on site which saves travelling too far if you're hungry, and only 5 mins from the ferry terminal. Only down side was the slippery tiles outside the door due... More

Visited for the first time. Entrees have a twist - my partner had a shrimp cocktail (in NZ usually shrimps in sauce with lettuce in a glass bowl) the Whaler's version is heaps of shrimp, citrus and lychees.
