The owner is originally from Germany. She is very friendly and is an avid geocacher. It's a small hotel but in a great location just a short walk from the beach. This is on the north end of town and is still very convenient.

Average motel in New Zealand. The room was comfortable and clean, close to main road - very noisy. Need a car to reach the town center. I don't think there was alternative with better standard in this price range.More
