Very good food and very good wait staff. Very little wait for food preparation. I particularly enjoyed the Pacific chowder. Restaurant serves both a regular and continental breakfast not included as part of lodging costs. Would recommend to others. Cost reasonable given the remoteness of the location.

This restaurant and bar is perfect to just call in for a coffee and a snack or a nice glass of wine and dinner in the evening. The food was excellent and all the staff were very welcoming and friendly. A gem in Tutukaka.

We stayed for one night. Great location. Room was large and looked out onto the marina. We were on the first floor and could hear the people above us moving around quite loudly. This isn't the hotels fault and I am sure the people were being heavy footed or else it was kids running about. It was clean and pleasant.... More

I'm afraid to say the coffee was very average if you make a suggestion that something in the cabinet would go very nicely with your coffee I might purchase it

Spent the day diving the Poor Knights. Need a quick bite to eat before running off to the next adventure. And Oceans delivered. I had the catch of the day. It was perfect. My cousins had fish and chips and they loved it. I look forward to eating there again.

We found service friendly in both the hotel and in the restaurant. The staff there were very helpful and food was good too. The dessert we had was a little over the top for just a basic dessert, but it was tasty. Prices were reasonable

Excellent breakfast, but it is a hotel and the service and atmosphere let it down. Great for a quick breakfast.
