We stayed for one night in August, after pulling up and finding the reception locked up we were a little concerned. However when we found the correct reception on the other side we were greeted by Simon who was very welcoming and pleasant. The hotel wasn't that busy and we were given a room facing out to the fields and sea beyond. Admitedly, the furniture and decor are dated however, we could not fault the cleanliness of the room and the bedding was fresh and spotless, The bed was huge and very comfortable so we slept well. There were nice toiletries and plenty of tea/coffe and hot chocolate.
Having got to the bar for early doors(about 5.00) we were the first in there and the staff were helpful in letting us try a couple of beers before deciding. Simon also opened up the outside deck area for us as it was a lovely evening. (although it was winter) The bar soon filled up with guests and locals and there was a great atmosphere, also a big log fire. We had a great meal which was good value and we noticed Simon mingling with the guests and ensuring all was well.
Although this is not a five star hotel the attitude of the staff and their efforts to make your stay a pleasant one is five star and cannot be faulted. We found this evening to be one of our favourites of our New Zealand tour. We fully recommend this hotel and it represents excellent value for the price you pay. Thank you to Simon and the staff.
