Cardno’s was had been given good reports on Tripadvisor so we decided that we would book in for 2 nights on our recent trip. We were not disappointed, the room was spacious and very clean with spectacular views of the coast line – what more can I say! A nice feature was a pair of binoculars that were in the room that you could use to look along the coast or out to sea. If the weather was a little better we would have utilised the deck area attached to the room. Cardno's is walking distance to the local pub, which after a busy day was great to relax in, with good pub food. Cardno's was an ideal place to base ourselves for a visit to The Catlins area of NZ. Cathedral Cave is great, but you have to get the timing right for low tide (Clyde had put a leaflet in room information stating when low-tide would be for the following few days), Curio Bay where we spotted a couple of Yellow Eyed penguins, McLeans Falls, etc it is all just a beautiful area that is not commercialised. Two nights is not quite enough to see it all.
If we are in the area again we would not hesitate to book at Cardno’s again.
