What lovely little chalets. Cosy, everything we needed, warm, comfortable, and really the BEST BED. Simple but Innovative design. Highly recommend this place, wish we could have stayed longer. Great location close to town too.

We stayed for 10 days in the Garden Villa. Comfortable Beds, nice little kitchen and very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful gardens. Great location with access to river walk and local restaurants. The cafe is excellent and not too expensive. We really enjoyed our stay.

Kia ora Haphol-2012, Thank you for taking the time to post this review. We noted that you opted to stay in one of our standard studio rooms during your visit. As the name suggests, this particular room is minus some of the bells and whistles that our 'newer' rooms have, but this is reflected in the price and is often the reason people choose it. May we suggest that next time you might like to try one of our modern micro-village cabins (the "newest" rooms in Whakatane), we get the feeling they will be more to your tastes. Cheers!

We stayed in the ‘village’ part. It was very nice. Our room was spacious, clean and comfy. However we missed a table or something. Very friendly staff. Would not recommend the coffee in their cafe, it was very bitter, could not drink it. I’ve been there before on a business trip
