My wife and I were attracted by the location and appearance from the road. Closer up, the premises shows it's age . Our unit lacked the kitchen facilty with sink usually found in NZ motels of the type, and made the provided continental breakfast a little awkward, And why do so many accomodations lack any room for two toilet bags with out placing them on the bathroom floor !!!
The double bed felt due for an update , but the unit generally was quite tidy. Hosts Butch and Jo very friendly ...Butch very good at an interesting combo of Australasian / Mexican cuisine and very tasty, carried over from their earlier restaurant experience elsewhere.
The views from the units are almost unequalled anywhere. Enjoyed our stay.
