We had an upstairs room with ensuite - small but functional. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast delicious. The views were nice as long as you didn't look down into the neighbour's back yard.

This hotel is a perfect stop for the ideal location of Mangawhai. The hostess is very accomodating and informative on local attractions and where to eat. The sea views are very special. We only stayed there for one night but would of found it very easy to stay an extra few more. Breakfast was very homely. AAA+

Stayed two nights. Good TA reviews fully justified for this small gem. Very comfortable and clean rooms most (as far as we could see) with access to balcony with excellent views. Quiet, away from fairly busy main road but short walk to all restaurants etc in Mangawhai (there aren't that many!!) Very helpful host, good breakfasts...what more can you ask.
