We stayed here one night during winter on our 18 day tour of New Zealand. It was very quiet. The rooms were clean and the view was amazing. Within an easy stroll to town centre. It was nice to come home to a very comfy lounge after a long day driving and sightseeing, probably the only place we stayed throughout our 18 days that had a decent comfortable lounge. It was also the only place along our travels that provided the Australian favourite Milo sachets along with tea, coffee and sugar. The complimentary bathroom supplies were the nicest we had found too, they were from the New Zealand West Coast and they had a lovely feel. I would highly recommend a stay here.
