I booked this as a Choice hotel, then it disappeared off my bookings list. Called in and Choice had no idea what I was talking about. The reservation number did not help. Lame? Yes.... More

Hotel owner had good suggestions for activities, organised our taxi to Napier and return with no fuss. This is good value for money.

Niki, While we do not condone some of the language used by our temporary manager your behaviour did not meet our expectations either.

We received a friendly greeting & good directions for our needs in Hastings. Room 21 was beside the busy road which wasn't so good for country dwellers; next time I'll ask for a room at the back. Facilities were clean & modern.
