This place has the potential to be a great little retreat - unfortunately it needs a bit of work before that can happen. We stayed in an ensuite unit, the bathroom was very dated and rough around the edges. The bedroom was fine - comfy bed. The carton of fresh milk was a nice touch.
We used the onsite bar which was nice, and the restaurant seemed busy although we didn't eat there.
At the time of our visit, we found that the eargerly awaited spa was broken.
For the amount of money the room cost I expected more, hence, do not think it is good value for money. I would investigate other options if staying in Karamea again.
