The room was on the smaller side for 3 adults and a dog, but it was clean and warm. The beds were very comfortable and the shower... More

Clothes washing facilities onsite. No limit free wifi (login details provided on arrival). 2 min walk from the beach. Only downside is that you're not in... More

Was adequate for what we needed (just a place to sleep) Room was a little on the small side for 2 adults + kid, but overall it was a place to sleep. Would probably go back there again if I needed a stopover place

Excellent place to stay at a very reasonable rate. Tidy and clean rooms that have everything you need including plenty of Sky channels. Great owners also. Very friendly and obliging and happy to go out of their way to help. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when in the Hawkes Bay. Matt

We needed somewhere to stay that would allow our dog to be there. The owners were really nice & helpful & more than willing to accommodate our needs. Studio room was small but fine for a single night for 3 people & a dog. Was really quiet & warm. Nice & close to the beach for taking the dog for... More
