A great place to stop for the night. The room was clean and comfortably appointed. A word of warning - don't open the doors at night with the inside lights on, you'll be swamped by sandflies! Would stay again if I was in the area....More

Very interesting comments - I think we will leave it to all our other guests from all over the world who have posted positive reviews regarding their stay with us. Perhaps a little bit of enlightenment about Opononi - we are a small 'country village'...More
