Got stuck there one night at the end of a tour that was supposed to go to Auckland. It's either a $50 taxi ride to Auckland or a ferry which stops at 11pm. I'm sure it was once a nice place to stay but it looks old and worn from the outside and inside. The room was ok, except for the lack of screens so I could either get eaten by bugs or suffocated by closing the windows as the place is too old to have any individual room temp controls. No hot water in the morning to shave or shower so basically it was a waste of money to stay there.
