Positives: Conveniently close to motorway and easy to get into Wellington. Not too noisy. Owners are very helpful and the Christmas dinner was exceptional. Comfortable beds and linen, cosy bar area. Friendly atmosphere.
Negatives: in a gap in mountains and so no views of city. Feels isolated. Worn out cement paths outside rooms with bird droppings and flaky paint. 4 stars in the guide books is hard to understand. Old analogue tv, no air con, hot rooms if over 25 degrees. Over priced by 30% compared to other Nz accommodation on our trip.
I hope it can pull itself up to a better standard of facility to justify the prices asked. Would stay again only if it was cheaper.
