We have been back in Canada for about a week and we must say that one of our highlights of New Zealand was our experience at Cook's Lookout Motel. We spent one month in NZ and stayed at various motels throughout the country in both the North and South Island. For Easter we had booked 5 nights at Cook's Lookout (the third week of of our vacation) and were most delighted we did.
We had great views of the bay, the tides, the sunset, the moon, great rooms and great hospitality. And yes, peace and quiet. We had stayed at other places which advertised quiet (except they didn't bother to mention the train that would come through @ 4:00 a.m.). So yes we did appreciate the peace and quiet and no trains, no traffic noises.
Norm & Shelagh were there to book our tours and let us know what to expect which was appreciated.
We were glad that we had chosen to spend all 5 nights there. The first day we stayed at the motel just to catch up on some rest and enjoy our surroundings which was just a draw of the curtain away.
If we do travel back to NZ - Cook's Lookout will be definitely be on our list.
Thanks to Norm and Shelagh for their warm welcome, great hospitality, great accommodations.
