We are a couple in our 30's who will be in New Zealand in March and driving from Omapere to Hahei during our trip.
Unfortunately the hotel we are staying at in Hahei didn't have a room for the first night we wanted to stay there, so instead we need to stop for a night on the way.
Can anyone recommend a nice town to stop for a night - either a pretty spot or somewhere with a tourist attraction? It doesn't matter how far along the way it is as we were originally happy to do the drive in one day.
I was looking at Titirangi, but the accommodation seems quite expensive. We are mostly staying in B&B's or bach's for about NZD100-130 per night.
